Рассмотрение вопроса признания Геноцида в Австралии

20 октября в парламенте Австралии прошли слушания по вопросу признания Геноцида армян по инициативе Джо Хокки, сенатора и представителя армянской общины Австралии. Им же была подготовлена петиция к Австралийскому парламенту (подписать можно тут http://anc.org.au/epetition/view/5)


CANBERRA: On October 20th, Federal Member for North Sydney, the Hon. Joe Hockey spoke openly about the Armenian Genocide in the Federal Parliament of Australia, calling for recognition of this heinous crime.

In response to appeals by the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC Australia), Hockey raised in Parliament the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's (ABC) recent use of the qualifier 'alleged' when making reference to the Armenian Genocide in a documentary entitled 'Family Footsteps - Armenia' broadcast in September.

Hockey stated: "In the dead of night on 24 April 1915, 250 Armenian political, religious, educational and intellectual leaders in Istanbul were arrested, deported to the interior of the country and murdered... which is now recognised as the beginning of an official attempt by the Turkish government to exterminate its Armenian population.

"Around 1½ million Armenians were murdered during the Armenian genocide out of an estimated total Armenian population of just 2½ million people."

Hockey concluded by calling on the Commonwealth Government to recognise the Armenian Genocide. He urged "this parliament to recognise the Armenian genocide for what it was—not alleged, not supposed and not so-called."

In a statement released today, ANC Australia President Mr. Varant Meguerditchian thanked Hockey for "again demonstrating leadership on a human rights issue which transcends party politics".

The statement read: "ANC Australia reaffirms its commitment to raising awareness of the Armenian Genocide as a measure toward the prevention of such crimes against humanity."

Hockey thanked ANC Australia for bringing this matter to his attention.

The statement by Joe Hockey in Parliament follows an active grassroots action by ANC Australia to raise awareness and seek correction by the ABC for referring to the Armenian Genocide as the 'alleged Armenian Genocide' in a recent documentary.

In addition to more than 1000 emails sent by members of the Armenian-Australian community to the ABC regarding this matter, ANC Australia secured letters of support from the Hon. Ms Maxine McKew, Member for Bennelong, Prof. Gregory Stanton, President of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, Dr Donna-Lee Freize, Deakin University, Prof. Peter Balakian, Author of The Burning Tigris: The Armenian Genocide and America's Response, the Australian Hellenic Council and the Australian Institute for Holocaust & Genocide Studies.

Re: Рассмотрение вопроса признания Геноцида в Австралии

12 ноября:


CANBERRA: Following meetings with the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC Australia) in Canberra, Senator for Western Australia Chris Ellison called on the national Senate to formally recognise the Armenian Genocide.

In what is a major development, the Armenian Genocide has been discussed in both houses of Australia’s Parliament within three weeks. Senator Ellison’s remarks on 11 November follow the Hon. Joe Hockey’s on 20 October, when he called for the Australian House of Representatives to formally recognise the Armenian Genocide.

Re: Рассмотрение вопроса признания Геноцида в Австралии

Сейчас по инициативе Джо Хокки проводится сбор электронных подписей под петецией к Австралийскому парламенту с просьбой признания Геноцида.

Recently, at the urging of the Armenian National Committee of Australia, the Hon. Joe Hockey - Federal MP for North Sydney and Shadow Finance Minister - spoke candidly in the Australian House of Representatives about Turkey's continued denial of the Armenian Genocide.

By signing your name to this e-petition, you will add your voice to growing calls for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the Government of Australia.

подписать петицию можно по адресу http://anc.org.au/epetition/view/5


Будьте добры не поленитесь
