28th Anniversary of Sumgait Pogroms – Speech in Parliament, 16/3/16

Below is a link to a speech I delivered on the 16th March recognising the 28th Anniversary of the Sumgait Progroms.

These are stories that do not dominate the attention of our media, of this Parliament, or even in our school history classes.

Yet the atrocities committed against the Armenian people over the past century deserve our regular attention, and the dignified and stoic way the Armenian people and their descendants have not just survived, but continue to flourish, as they proudly celebrate their cultural traditions, deserves our enduring respect.
