YEREVAN, MARCH 31, ARMENPRESS: On April 20, "April 24" committee of
the Federation of Dutch-Armenian Organizations and the Armenian Cause
Office of Holland will conduct a rally on the occasion of the 95th
anniversary of Armenian Genocide in Het Plein Square of Hague.

An official from "April 24" committee told Armenpress that the
Dutch-Armenian organizations, joining their efforts, will reconfirm
the call to Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide and to the
government of the Netherlands to bring to life the decision adopted
unanimously by the Dutch parliament in 2004.

The Dutch-Armenians will unanimously condemn the cynic rejection of
the Armenian Genocide by Turkey after 95 years; even speaking of it
is considered a crime in Turkey.

"Though the Armenian Genocide has found a wide recognition, the
international community has not managed to indubitably tell Turkey
that the behavior of denial and humiliation is not acceptable.

This position of the international community created a solid ground
for the genocide of 1915 in front of the open eyes of the world. For
that very reason it is of great importance that we come forward
united on the occasion of the 95th anniversary of the genocide. We
call everybody to participate in the upcoming joint demonstration
in Hague, international town of law," the statement of "April 24"
committee and Armenian Cause of Holland runs.

The goal of the rally is also to demand that a monument perpetuating
the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide is put up in Hague,
in order the humanity no more displays an ignorant attitude toward
similar disastrous events.
