Francia: è reato la negazione del genocidio degli Armeni


Titolo: Members of a pro-government workers unio

Descrizione: Members of a pro-government workers union protest on December 21, 2011 outside the French Embassy in Ankara. The protest is against France's plan for a law making it illegal to deny the Armenian genocide perpetrated during the Ottoman era. The French parliament votes on December 22 on a bill on the massacre by forces of the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Armenia says up to 1.5 million of its people were killed. Ankara rejects the term genocide and says between 300,000 and 500,000 Armenians, and at least as many Turks, died in combat or from starvation when Armenians rose up and sided with invading Russian forces.
