The Heritage faction of the National Assembly has come forth with a
legislative initiative, proposing to amend the Law on Holidays and
Remembrance Days of the Republic of Armenia."

Members of the faction suggest marking April 24th not only as the
Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide victims, but also as an
Expatriation Day.

"The genocide resulted in the expatriation of Armenians, and the
people were deprived of their historical motherland. This reality is
our common tragedy, which makes the fact of genocide more integral.

The tragedy should be viewed in this integrity and the remembrance day
should be marked in this context," members of the Heritage faction say.
