The Dutch "Turkish Forum" lobbyist organization has launched a
campaign, urging Dutch voters of Turkish origin to boycott all the
political parties, which recognize the Armenian Genocide.

According to the Associated Press, the campaign launched three weeks
before the parliamentary elections on November 22, is response of
Dutch Turks to the two leading Christian-Democratic and Labor Parties,
who expelled Turks from their party lists for denying the Armenian
Genocide.

The lobbyiist organization calls tto cast the ballots for D-66 Party,
which is the only one among the main parties of the country that does
not recognize the Armenian Genocide.

"Use our votes to teach those who want to restrict our democratic
rights," say the posters the organization disseminated in the cities
having largest Turkish populations.
