Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, called on Baghdad Secretariat, municipalities of the provinces, Ministry of Environment and civil society organizations to launch a campaign to clean up and plant trees in cities and provide a clean and green environment, declaring that this campaign which is launched along with the Nowruz aims at complementing the security messages that seek to achieve security and stability in the country, expressing his hope that the souls, hearts and countries flourish, and particularly in our beloved Iraq.
This came during the participation of al-Hakim in the second Spring National Campaign for tree planting, which was launched under the auspices of the Movement of the Martyr of the Niche under the slogan "Iraq springs are: Liberation and Forestation”, on Saturday,
March 21, 2015.
His Eminence blessed the Iraqi people, including Kurds and all people celebrating Nowruz, noting that planting a tree represents the Iraqis commitment to cleanliness and greenery and to build life for integration with the major effort made in the battlefields by the heroes of the brave security forces, the popular crowd, the Peshmerga forces and the native tribes. His Eminence clarified that the brave fighters fight ISIS for life, removing the enemies and building a promising society that live in peace and harmony, stressing that the implantation and solidarity with nature express the Iraqis attachment to life and their desire to live in a safe environment, pointing out that the environmental safety is as important as security safety.
