Support the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RESOLUTION Vote in Congress in 30 seconds

December 21, 2010

Please take 30 seconds to send your message to the U.S. Congress to Vote for the Armenian Genocide Resolution

Today the U.S. Congress may finally have the opportunity to vote for the Armenian Genocide Resolution. However, Turkey is working with the highest levels of our administration, President Obama and Secretary State Hillary Clinton (and the State Department) to prevent this vote from coming to the floor. Turkey has succeeded at convincing the US’s democratic leadership to be complicit denying the Armenian Genocide for 95 years. Despite our leaders’ private convictions, the United States of America does not yet officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. The reality is no different today. Reports through last night continue to bring news that President Obama and Secretary Clinton do not want the Congress to vote for House Resolution 252 (H.Res. 252) to appease Turkey. Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi intends to bring the vote to the floor of the House today.

It takes 30 seconds to send your message to Congress now

There are only a few living Armenian Genocide survivors in the United States. Let’s all do what we can to tell our representatives that the time to stop denying the Armenian Genocide has come, let’s make this happen in their lifetime.

Genocide resolution nears vote on December 21

Please don’t think to yourself that your parents or friends will contact your representatives, so you don’t need to do it to. EVERY VOTE COUNTS. Your call could make the difference to your representative in Congress, and their vote could be the deciding vote. Our leaders need to know that we care and that it’s not okay to buckle to the Turkish lobby. All that we have, we owe to our grandparents and great-grandparents. Tell your member of Congress what happened to your family members in the Armenian Genocide. They need to hear it from you.

Read my letter to President Obama telling him about my grandfather, Dr. John Karnig

The world is owed affirmation of the truth that what happened in Turkey in 1915 was Genocide. Until our leaders have the courage to acknowledge this truth we are doomed to repeat history, including genocides. The Holocaust, Darfur, and Rwanda all happened after the Armenian Genocide because the perpetrators saw that Turkey’s misdeeds were never punished and censured.

Please send this link to everyone you know and ask them to email Congress today:
