Second donkey statue to be unveiled in Suli today07/07/2012 10:22
GARMIYAN, July 7 (AKnews)- The statue of a donkey will be unveiled today in Azadi (Freedom) Park in central Suli today evening.
This will be the second statue of a donkey in Kurdistan. The portrait of a donkey which was laid in Suli earlier this year was attacked and damaged.
The statue of the Drop-Eared Donkey will be unveiled in a praiseworthy ceremony today, said Omar Klol, secretary for Kurdistan Donkey's Party.
Klol said guests from Suli and Garmiyan and the rest of the Kurdistan Region have been invited to the ceremony in honor of the Drop-Eared Donkey which accompanied and assisted the Kurdish fighters (peshmargas) during the hard times of struggle against Saddam Hussein regime.
He added the peshmargas used this beast of burden for carrying water and armory to their colleagues in the mountains.
Klol continued the statue should have been created and erected in Garmiyan, where the Drop-Eared Donkey was best known, but Garmiyan refused the idea.
The donkey disappeared after the Anfal process of Kurdistan.
