The law against “denial of genocide recognized by law” causes great tension with the authorities in Turkey, which refer, not without relevance, Sarkozy and Co. for past massacres (Algeria) and later (in several countries of Africa) committed by the French army.
The tension that developed between our two countries and the bidding nationalists who meet, have nothing progressive. We deny to Sarkozy, and the French bourgeoisie in general, the right to speak for the victims of genocide.
The crude maneuver that would seek election to win the votes of the Armenians living in France, and does not serve the cause of the Armenian people who suffered a genocide by the Ottoman Empire.
The answer to this reactionary campaign is to develop solidarity between peoples and the common struggle against imperialism and reaction.
