ISTANBUL (Marmara)–The Istanbul chapter of the Turkish Human Rights Association issued an announcement on April 24 condemning the Turkish government for “using all means” to deny the Armenian Genocide.
The announcement stated that April 24 is know to all the world as the day of remembrance of the Armenian Genocide, and it is only in Turkey that it is banned. “The Turkish government utilizes all its efforts to deny the significance of that date.”
“On the diplomatic front, Turkish officials and their supporters attempt to admit to the %u218tragedy’ but refuse to call it Genocide,” read the announcement.
“Denial is part of Genocide and contributes to the continuation of that cycle. The denial of the Genocide is violation of human rights,” asserted the Human Rights Association.
