Taboo Breakers – Turkish Human Rights Champion Defies Denial of Armenian Genocide.

ArmeniaNow.com just posted a great feature on the human rights activist Ragip Zarakolu who fearlessly pushes for genocide recognition and ethnic minority rights in Turkey.


Without using this word [genocide] we couldn’t have touched people’s minds, there are not many today who understand the truth, but at least there are some, and that has caused a split in the society, which, as time goes by, will eventually force the state from the bottom up to admit the genocide.”


--- Ragip Zarakolu 



Turkish human rights activist Ragip Zarakolu is often referred to as Don Quixote fighting against the denial of the Armenian Genocide; he started publishing books and openly speaking out on the issue still in the 1990s, but says that not much has changed since then – Turkey continues its “indecent policy”.
