TURKEY STRUGGLES TO CURB ACCESS TO OTTOMAN ARCHIVES BECAUSE OF THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

YEREVAN, September 12. /ARKA/. Turkey is making every effort to prevent
opening up of the Ottoman Empire archives due to the problem of the
genocide against Armenians, founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said.

“Censorship started rising in Turkey as many welcomed it for the
Kurdish issues and the genocide of Armenians. Today censorship has
spread to all fields”, Assange said at an Internet forum held in
Istanbul on September 5.

Assange condemned the Internet management tools used in today’s
Turkey. According to him, the Turkish censorship has its roots in
the efforts against two problems – the Kurds and the Armenian genocide.

Earlier, the Turkish activist said access to some 45,000 and Youtube
is blocked for users in Turkey. In response, the Turkish authorities
made an attempt to say it is done to ensure children stay safe online.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
