With Emphasis on Nagorno-Karabakh, Uruguay Rallied for the 101° Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide
"Our struggle is the struggle against denial and the current lies. These are not things of the past. We have to stop perceiving the Armenian Genocide as something distant, as a fact that we only remember tearfully. That way only leads to oblivion. If the stories are not recounted, they die. The silence is the triumph of genocide," said the Young Armenians from Uruguay in their speech, after a rally of hundreds of people along the main avenue of the city, from Independence Square to the esplanade of the Municipality of Montevideo.
"At the same time, we condemn the shameful support that the current Turkish government of Erdogan gives to Azerbaijan, in what we consider a continuation of what the Ottoman Empire began 101 years ago."
