Members of Turkish Human Rights Organization DurDe to Pay Tribute to Armenian Genocide Victims –
Members of the turkish human rights organization ‘Say Stop to Racism and Nationalism’ (DurDe), which is well-known for its principled position on the Armenian Genocide, were critical of Dogu Perinçek at the Wednesday hearing of the Perinçek v Switzerland case at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
“They are a good and brave organization, extremely consistent in dealing with the issue of the Armenian Genocide. Among the members are Turkish intellectuals who recognize the Armenian Genocide. Turkey’s authorities are persecuting them, and opposition forces dislike them,” expert in Turkic studies Hakob Chakryan told Tert.am.
The Haykakan Zhamanak (Armenian Time) newspaper reported earlier that members of the DurDe organization plan to arrive in Armenia from Istanbul on April 24 to pay tribute to Armenian Genocide victims.
