YEREVAN, APRIL 24, ARMENPRESS. The state may deny the fact of the
Armenian Genocide, but the people can direct the events in the way
they want. As reports “Armenpress” one of the demonstrators stated
this in the Sultan Ahmet Square in Istanbul. One of the organizers of
the event stated: “Today there are fascists living in our country,
notwithstanding there are also good people living in here and their
number is increasing every year. The official viewpoint remains
unchanged, although the people’s knowledge about the reality is
growing. And the event organized in Diyarbakir is to prove that.”

The fact of the Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman government has
been documented, recognized, and affirmed in the form of media
and eyewitness reports, laws, resolutions, and statements by many
states and international organizations. The complete catalogue
of all documents categorizing the 1915 wholesale massacre of the
Armenian population in Ottoman Empire as a premeditated and thoroughly
executed act of genocide, is extensive. Uruguay was the first country
to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide in 1965. The massacres
of the Armenian people were officially condemned and recognized as a
genocide in accordance with the international law by France, Germany,
Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, Poland,
Lithuania, Greece, Slovakia, Cyprus, Lebanon, Uruguay, Argentina,
Venezuela, Chile, Canada, Vatican, and Australia.
