Turkey bans an Armenian Genocide memorial in Istanbul

A demonstration of how "sorry" they are. To make matters worse, they even arrested some participants:
The ceremony to be held at Sultanahmet Square in İstanbul today (April 24) to commemorate the ones who lost their lives in the Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915 was cancelled.

The commemoration ceremony would be held by Human Rights Association (İHD) İstanbul Branch, Commission Against Racism and Discrimination and the European Grassroots Antiracist Movement (EGAM) at 12 p.m.

İstanbul Governorship’s request that the word “genocide” be removed from the statement to be read out during the commemoration was announced as the reason for the cancellation of the ceremony.

Three people have been detained

Three members of the İHD, Jiyan Tosun, Gamze Yaman and Leman Yurtsever, who were carrying the banner, have been taken into custody.

16 members of the European Parliament and İHD İstanbul Branch executives rejected the request of İstanbul Governorship regarding the removal of the word “genocide” from the statement.
And with an "election" looming again in Turkey, it's bound to get much worse, as Erdogan continues his purge of all common sense from the country.

Update: here's another topic on Jihad Watch discussing what the Turkish government is concealing.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
