The Brussels-based European Armenian Federation issued recently an APPEALto pan-European institutions (that CRAG reproduced in full on 27 April 2005).

The Appeal concluded: "We therefore request that you join hundreds of other associations, organisations and institutions in signing the attached European Call."

This call becomes more pertinent as the Belgian Senate discusses the bill on genocide denial, and as many developments take place in Europe in relation to the Armenian Genocide.

Therefore, for institutions and organisations in the United Kingdom, kindly log on and consider signing the said CALL [online or manually] since it would take few moments of your institutional time but prove effective in future terms.

Log on - The Appeal is available on

If you cannot sign this call online, kindly download and print it out, sign it and then send it to us by fax to the following number +322 732 70 27 or by mail at: EUROPEAN ARMENIAN FEDERATION, Avenue de la Renaissance 10, B-1000 Brussels, BELGIUM

For Italian readers, read an article on the Armenian Genocide in the leading Italian Corriere della Sera newspaper of 18 April 2005. Entitled 'Armeni, da novant'anni l'Europa li dimentica', it focuses on the genocide and concludes with a punchy analogy.
