Rep. Adam Schiff calls on Library of Congress to adopt Armenian Genocide subject heading

Public Radio of Armenia
Sept 26 2020

Rep. Adam Schiff has urged the Library of Congress to revise its outdated Armenian Massacres subject heading to Armenian Genocide, in the wake of last year’s passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.296 / S.Res.150) in the House and Senate.

“We had to remind them You’re the Library of CONGRESS! You’re our library. If you’re going to follow anyone’s policy, it is our policy. You’re not the library of the White House, or the library of the Executive Branch,” Rep. Schiff said in a video address.

On Friday U.S. Representative Dina Titus (D-NV) sent a bipartisan Congressional letter, signed by more than 50 of her U.S. House colleagues, calling on the Library to change the subject heading.

Rep. Titus explained, “The use of the term ‘Armenian Genocide’ by the Library of Congress would help paint an accurate picture of history and rightly honor the victims of this atrocity.”

Rep. Titus was joined by 56 U.S. House colleagues in cosigning the letter.

The letter makes the case that: “the current subject heading, “Armenian Massacres,” is outdated, having been created before Raphael Lemkin coined the term genocide and prior to the 1948 adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.” It goes on to argue that “the existing heading is also inconsistent with the broad, near-universal academic consensus recognizing the Armenian Genocide as a clear case of genocide as reflected in numerous resolutions, letters, and statements by the International Association of Genocide Scholars.”

Armenia Startup Academy Traction Programme Batch 1

On September 30 at 8PM EVN time, Armenia Startup Academy is going to hold a Demo Day 

 The European Union and Viva-MTS supported the implementation of Armenia Startup Academy Traction Programme Batch 1. As Viva-MTS reported, this 10-week mentorship-based programmewas launched earlier this year to help companies at a post-prototype stage with early traction accelerate their growth and raise their first or follow-on rounds. The programmeis implemented by Catalyst Foundationand supported by the European Union’sEU4Business “Technology Development for Armenia” project implemented by GIZ. Viva-MTS, Armenia’s leading telecommunications operator joins the initiative as a corporate partner and supporter.

This Demo Day provides a different format compared to the previous ones. The novel additions are the following:

 ● After each startup’s pitch, the founders will answer the questions of a specially-invitedInvestor Panel – representatives from global VC firms. This new format promises to make the Demo Day more engaging as well as provide a platform for relationship building with interested investors.

 ● Those investors, who want to learn more about the startups, can register for “Investor Access” (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScpOqF2soWK4Nz-TR6Zc5AGbXbO8LV-4DrzRvQ_suV-QLH81w/viewform). The registered investors will not only receive more information about the startups they are interested in but also have an opportunity to hold one-on-one meetings with the founders after the Demo Day.

 The pilot batch of the Traction programme includes 9startups, which offer innovative solutions in such diverse fields as EduTech, logistics, HR, marketing, and more. These 9 teams have gone through 10 weeks of intensive learning and mentorship programme working closely with Startup Academy’s in-house mentors, sales and growth-hacking coaches, as well as receiving ad hoc consultations from industry experts.

 For the safety concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic, the Demo Day will be held virtually. Everyone interested can join the livestream via the Armenian Startup Academy Facebook page and Hero House  .

Six months after French Armenian politician Patrick Devedjian’s death, the Hauts-de-Seine department, of which he was president, paid him a strong tribute on Friday. Many political figures were in attendance to pay tribute to Devedjian’s memory during this long day of remembrance, Le Figaro reports.

Many of them met at 10:30 am in the cathedral of Nanterre. Attending the mass were former President Nicolas Sarkozy, former Prime Ministers François Fillon and Jean-Pierre Raffarin and others.

Patrick Devedjian’s wife and two of the four sons spoke during the mass, celebrated according to the Armenian rite in the presence of an Armenian choir, with a reading of the same gospel as that which had been chosen for Jacques Chirac (gospel of Jesus Christ according to Matthew).

The main event was held at Seine Musicale, which now bears his name. The place was one of the great projects of Patrick Devedjian. The site was built under a partnership contract signed in July 2013 between the General Council and the Tempo Île Seguin group. President Devedjian laid the foundation stone there on July 5, 2014.

The event was attended by Georges Siffredi, successor of Patrick Devedjian at the head of the department, many elected officials from Ile-de-France and Hauts-de-Seine. The mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo was forced to cancel her participation because of the news of stabbing attacks in the 11th arrondissement.

The chairman of the Hauts-de-Seine departmental council and former minister Patrick Devedjian died from the consequences of the coronavirus on March 29.
