CRAG has actively supported this open public event at the Temple of Peace in Cathays Park in Cardiff, Wales. Attending are the Chair of CRAG as well as other Board Members, Father Shnork Baghdassarian and other Church representatives as well as participants from different communities.

The key speaker is Mike Joseph, with contributions from other speakers that represent Welsh political parties as well as Armenian and Jewish participants.

Hereunder is the Press Release from Wales-Armenia Solidarity, an associate of CRAG, on this important event that will address both the Armenian Genoicde and Jewish Holocaust in the presence of political and religious dignitaries:

"Wales-Armenia Solidarity - Solidarite Pays de Galles- Armenie - Press Release

On the Eve of Holocaust Memorial Day,The Political, Cultural, and Religious Elite of Wales once more gather in Solidarity with the Armenian and Jewish victims of Turkish and Nazi Crimes against Humanity

At The Temple of Peace, Cardiff, capital of Wales, a nation emerging from 700 years of English misrule, on 26th January, representatives of all Religious denominations, the President of the National Cultural Festival and the leaders all political parties, including the First Minister of the National Assembly Rhodri Morgan gather to commemmorate the Armenian victims of genocide perpetrated by the Turkish State in 1894-96, 1909, and 1915-23 and the Jewish victims of the1939-45 Holocaust.

On this issue unanimity of opinion has been reached and this establishes a moral challenge to the U.K. government's position of conniving to aid Turkey's accesion into the European Union without any pre-condition of Recognition of its past crimes against the Armenian nation.

The main speaker will be Mike Joseph, the authority on the close connection between the Armenian Genocide and the Jewish Holocaust. Welsh and Armenian choirs will participate at this occassion.

It was the Welshman David Lloyd George, who was Prime minister of Britain from 1916-22, who recognised Britain's guilt in the matter. He wrote in 1932 in "The Truth about Peace Treaties": " It was the actions of the British government that led to the massacres of 1894-96, 1909 and worst of all, the the Holocaust of 1915".

True to tradition today's British government continue to turn a blind eye to Turkey's genocidal policies towards Armenia."
