10.000 Turks rally to protest Berlin’s recognition of Armenian Genocide

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ahead of a Bundestag vote on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, Germany-based Turks continue disseminating denialism, seeking to pressure the MPs.

Around 10.000 Turks staged a rally in Berlin, Anadolu Agency reports.

Germany is looking to adopt a resolution, titled “Remembrance and commemoration of the Genocide of Armenians and other Christian minorities in the years 1915 and 1916” Thursday, June 2.

Demonstrators carried Turkish and German flags as well as placards reading “Stop distorting historical facts”, “We are against hate, we are for solidarity,” “Long live Turkish-German friendship” and “No to lies about genocide”.

The protesters urged German legislators to vote against the recognition of the Genocide.

Earlier, thousands of emails were reportedly sent out by the Turkish community to German MPs, threatening the politicians and calling them names. Some emails crossed a line, intimidating politicians and threatening the lives of journalists.
