Tell the US government to lead the way in affirming the truth of history. Beginning in 1915, the Young Turk leaders of the Ottoman Empire ensured the deaths of around 1 million Armenians. Government authorized forces drove Armenians from their homes and forced them on death marches which caused the majority of the Armenian population to die. Historians and scholars all over the world recognize these events as genocide against the Armenian people, but the Turkish government denies it to this day, denying the Armenian survivors recognition of their grief. Tell Congress and President Obama to lead the way and not let Turkey white-wash history for its own benefit.
That's why I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
"Acknowledge the truth of history and recognize the Armenian genocide of 1915 by the Young Turk government of the Ottoman Empire. Don't let the Turkish government white-wash history any longer."
