Germany Turkish Intellectuals to Picket Embassy on Genocide Recognition

A group of Turks living in Berlin will be picketing the Turkish Embassy there in protest of Turkish denial of the Armenian genocide.

Turkish intellectuals living in Germany have organized the June 29 demonstration. The same group has consistently fought for recognition of the Armenian genocide and against Turkey’s official policy on the issue.

Turkey vehemently denies the genocide of Armenia’s by the Ottoman government at the turn of the twentieth century–during which 1.5 million Armenian perished.

The group also participated in a press conference and debate on May 3–in the German city of Koln–organized by Armenia’s in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.
