Online Expansion of The Assyrian Radio program "Qolo"

January 3, 07
© EasternStar News Agency

The Swedish public service radio’s expansion on the Internet means many new opportunities for the radio program Qolo. Apart from the programs that are being aired on Thursdays and Fridays, Qolo has now also the opportunity to publish longer interviews on important or current events. Qolo

The debate on Assyrian autonomy is the subject that is currently discussed among our people. The Assyrian Democratic Organization (ADO) has been in Sweden recently and lectured about autonomy in Iraq. ADO has taken its position in the question of an autonomy. Listen to Brahim Afram (Furkono) here and ADO here.

It is widely known that the archive in the
Vatican contains a lot of material about our people and not least about the years of the First World War, when the Genocide – Seyfo was going on. The Vatican had many missions in the area during Seyfo 1915. Can Beth Sawoce has been in the Vatican archive, here you can listen to Can Beth Sawoce about what he found there.

Police superintendent Kant’s ideas and lies about Assyrians have been debated in Swedish public service radio channel P4. Kant didn’t dare to take part in the program. Instead of Kant his superior participated in the debate and made an unsuccessful attempt to save superintendent Kant. Listen to the program here. Superintend Kant’s statement is nothing but an agitation against an ethnic group.

ESNA urges the national Assyrian associations to take their responsibility and press charges against superintend Lennart Kant for this false statement that stamps the whole ethnic group as drug dealers and criminals.

The last interviews are about the letters written and distributed by e-mail by a group that calls itself Mor Afrem’s liberation. According to the letters there are financial irregularities in the Mor Afrem parish in S–dert”lje. There are two interviews to listen to about it. In order to listen to the interview with Bishop Benjamin Atas click here, with Johan Melkemichel click here.
