Support Armenian genocide recognition

Thanks to the excellent Cyprus Action Network of America for bringing to my attention the campaign currently underway to ensure that Barack Obama sticks to his pre-election promise of recognising the Armenian genocide. For details of how to support the just cause of the Armenians read below and to put yourself on the e-mailing list of CANA – highly recommended – forward your name and e-mail address, with the subject heading "Add e-mail to CANA distribution list", to cana@cyprusactionnetwork.org or go here.

NEW YORK: The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) encourages Cypriot activists, and all Hellenes and Phil Hellenes around the world to send in letters of support and participate in actions to make 2009 the year of Armenian Genocide Affirmation.

Emails and letters to President Obama are being sent in from around the world, the Armenian Genocide Affirmation website, has a quick and easy form for us to send in our emails of support, with the following call to President Obama:

Dear Mr. President
America needs your leadership. Throughout your career, you have been a strong proponent of affirmation of the Armenian Genocide. In a January 2008 letter to the Armenian-American community you vowed that as President you would affirm the Armenian Genocide. The threat of genocide has not been eliminated and the consequences of genocide are a continuing reality. Please take a strong stand to prevent its occurrence and to stop its denial. April 24, 2009 is the 94th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. I urge you to honor your commitment and affirm the Armenian Genocide.

Please send your message in to Armenian Genocide Affirmation:


Many Hellenic organizations have already included the link above to their websites, including ours. Please include the link to your own personal web pages, blogs and message boards. Let’s make 2009 the year of Armenian Genocide Affirmation, and help to bring about full justice for Turkey’s Crimes.

Updates and further actions and news on the Armenian Cause are also available from the Armenian National Committee of America ANCA, website:
