Incredibly powerful images of Armenian church destruction in Turkey, many of which occurred in the 1950s and 1960s after Turkey had become a party to the Genocide Convention.

Bir ulus ya da etkin grubun kültürünü yok etmek için uygulanan yasalar ve önlemlere ‘kültürel soykırım’ adı verilir. ‘Soykırım’ sözcüğü Raphael Lemkin tarafından ortaya atılmıştır ve ulusal ya da dini bir grubun yalnızca fiziksel olarak imha edilmesini değil ayrıca ruhsal ve kültürel imhasını da ifade eder.

Armenian Legal Center’s Kate Nahapetian discusses accountability for the Armenian and Darfur genocides at Georgetown Law. The symposium was organized by the Darfur Women Action Group. Nahapetian recommended not relying solely on international courts where state actors with their own political agenda's often fail victim communities. She outlined several options for accountability where victims of genocide and their human rights allies can be in the driver's seat. http://asbarez.com/175979/armenian-legal-centers-nahapetian-discusses-genocide-accountability-at-georgetown-law-symposium/

Andrew Brunson, U.S. Pastor Held in Turkey, Is Ordered Released

BREAKING: Pastor Brunson released after being wrongfully jailed in Turkey for 2 years. Very public pressure against Turkey on human rights issues works! Remember today, when people claim otherwise & say we must be complicit in Armenian Genocide denial.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/12/world/europe/turkey-us-pastor-andrew-brunson.html

The move ended a 24-month ordeal and signaled a truce of sorts in a heated diplomatic dispute between Ankara and Washington.
