The name Medya comes from Medes, a nation who founded the age old Median Empire, which existed from 678 BC to 549 BC and stretched from Mesopotamia to Central Asia. Diyako became the first king of the empire, after he united all the median tribes under one kingdom. Kurds today see themselves as the descendants of these median tribes.

The Human Rights treaty was first proclaimed on December the 10th in 1948 by the UN General Assembly, an important date in regards to the Kurdish liberation struggle and the oppression of the Kurdish nation.
