SULAIMANIYAH, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', The statue of a donkey will be unveiled in Azadi (Freedom) Park in central Sulaimaniyah (Suli) today, Saturday evening.

This will be the second statue of a donkey in Kurdistan. The portrait of a donkey which was laid in Sulaimaniyah 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 Sulaimaniyah 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,www.ekurd.net but Garmiyan refused the idea.

The donkey disappeared after the Anfal process of Kurdistan.

The Donkeys' Party has unveiled the first statue of its four-legged namesake in dress attire in central Sulaimaniyah on April 12, 2012. It is located on Nali Street, which is named for a famous Kurdish poet who wrote a well-known poem about donkeys.

An attack on the statue of a donkey in Sulaimaniyah, has set off outcry among artists and journalists who deemed it as an assault on freedom and the "terrorization of thought".

In April, the party has demanded that Kurdistan regional government KRG provide it with financial support to open a radio station, which is to be named "Zarin," the Kurdish word for the sound a donkey makes.
