30th Anniversary WCA 1983-2013

 

30th ANNIVERSARY WCA – On 16 July 1983, this year precisely 30 years ago, the World Council of Arameans (Syriacs) (“WCA”), formerly called the “Syriac Universal Alliance” (cf. http://www.wca-ngo.org/about-us/name-change-sua-wca), was founded in New Jersey in the USA. Its visionary architects were the Syriac Federation of Sweden, the Aramaic American Association and the Syriac League in Beirut.

The WCA, which is an umbrella organization consisting of National Federations and Local Associations across Europe, the Middle East, Australia and the USA, is the leading organization of the Aramean (Syriac) people, especially through its key position as a United Nations NGO since 1999.

On 7 September, the WCA celebrated this monumental occasion LIVE on the Aramaic satellite channel Suryoyo Sat in Germany together with 100 members, friends and supporters. Unfortunately, the planned celebration on 20 September in Beirut has been cancelled. However, a big celebration, which will also be broadcast LIVE on Suryoyo Sat, will be held in Sweden in the next two months.
