URGENT: ACTION ALERT: Armenian Genocide Affirmation 2009

For Immediate Release: February 14, 2009

NEW YORK—The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) encourages Cypriot
activists, and all Hellenes and Phil Hellenes around the world to send in
letters of support and participate in actions to make 2009 the year of Armenian
Genocide Affirmation.

Emails and letters to President Obama are being sent in from around the world,
the Armenian Genocide Affirmation website, has a quick and easy form for us to
send in our emails of support, with the following call to President Obama:

Dear Mr. President,

America needs your leadership. Throughout your career, you have been a strong
proponent of affirmation of the Armenian Genocide. In a January 2008 letter to
the Armenian-American community you vowed that as President you would affirm the
Armenian Genocide. The threat of genocide has not been eliminated and the
consequences of genocide are a continuing reality. Please take a strong stand to
prevent its occurrence and to stop its denial. April 24, 2009 is the 94th
Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. I urge you to honor your commitment and
affirm the Armenian Genocide.

Please send your message in to Armenian Genocide Affirmation:

Many Hellenic organizations have already included the link above to their
websites, including ours. Please include the link to your own personal web
pages, blogs and message boards. Let’s make 2009 the year of Armenian Genocide
Affirmation, and help to bring about full justice for Turkey’s Crimes.

Updates and further actions and news on the Armenian Cause are also available
