Uruguay Armenia’s Stage Protest against Turkey’s Accession to EU

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–Members of Uruguay’s Armenian community demonstrated outside the European Union (EU) mission in Montevideo–to protest the start of membership talks with Turkey–and to demand the latter recognize its genocide of Armenia’s before being granted membership into the Union.

Ethnic Armenian member of the Uruguay Parliament Lilian Keshishian–accompanied by another member of parliament Ivn Posadas joined the October 3 protest–organized by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s "Armenia" Youth Union.

Protesters held posters reading "Historic truth cannot be hidden,"Turkey–admit to your crime–the Armenian Genocide," and "No to Turkey’s accession to EU unless Armenian Genocide recognition."

A delegation handed an EU representative a petition signed by 30,000 people–demanding the EU deny Turkey membership–unless the country recognizes the Armenian genocide.
