/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Union of Turkish Associations in Europe laid
black wreaths in front of French consulates general in four German
cities - Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Munich and Stuttgart - to protest the
bill criminalizing denial of the Armenian Genocide that was approved
by French National Assembly on October 12th, 2006. Recep Yildirim,
the Chairman of the Union of Turkish Associations in Europe, said
that France, which defended human rights and freedom of expression,
has blackened its history due to adoption of the bill.

Yildirim added, "we hope that the bill will not be approved in the
Senate."
