  1. i am trying to watch, but the broadcast is really terrible.
    and i dont see flag of Kurdistan anywhere, which is also strange.

  2. Hi Kulka,
    I have given up on watching it. The poor technology was too much of a distraction. I would have really enjoyed seeing the conference.

  3. i also gave up after 1 hour and a half. well – USA dont have very good technology, if it was in Kurdistan, would be better :)))).
    But maybe someone recorded that independently and we will be able to watch the speakers on you tube.
    i am still waiting for events like that in london or anywhere in uk. any news about it, please post them.

  4. I have been told that they recorded the conference and will be posting it on YouTube. I’ll let you know when that happens.
