Tashnag: The International community must reckon with Armenian Genocide

APRIL 10, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The International community must finally reckon with the Armenian Genocide, Tashnag party students petitioned German ambassador Kristian Klages during their march at the embassy today.

With the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide on the 24th of April 2015, Tashnag students recall a Reichstag bill of motion recognizing the barbarities perpetrated by the Ottoman Sultanate on Armenians at the height of the 1915 Genocide amid total complicity of the then German Reich. As the Federal Republic of Germany acknowledged the complacency of the Reich, Tashnag students do hereby appeal to the German Reichstag to take the initiative and criminalize all denial of the Genocide; pressure must also be applied on the Turkish government to acknowledge the Ottoman role in the massacres and, by arranging to pay compensations to the Armenian victims, the petition said.

As grandsons to Genocide survivors, we vow to clamor for justice in quest of our people’s rights which could never die with the passing of time, the petition concluded.
