Greens Call for New Zealand's Parliament to Recognise Armenian Genocide

mad-daily.com

The Green Party is calling on New Zealand's Parliament to officially recognise the deaths of Armenians in Turkey during World War One as genocide, tvnz.co.nz reports

"I’m asking all of Parliament to support it. It has a link to our history," Green MP Gareth Huges told 1 NEWS.

Experts say that historic link is exactly why New Zealand should call it a genocide.

"New Zealand soldiers recorded the genocide in their memoirs and in their diaries and then brought those stories back home with them," historian James Robins said. 

A documentary, Intent to Destroy, will be screened in the New Zealand Parliament theatrette tonight and visiting experts and Armenian Community members will hold discussions following the screening.
