“Armenian community of Georgia” petitions to Tbilisi City Hall

12:08, 03.04.2012 Region: Armenia, Diaspora, Georgia Theme: Politics

The “Armenian community of Georgia” petitioned to the Tbilisi City Hall and the City Council with a request to allow the placing of a plaque in memory the Armenian Genocide victims.   

“We, the ethnic Armenian citizens of Georgia, form the second largest national minority in Georgia, and the first in Tbilisi. Despite numerous petitions and requests, we still do not have in Tbilisi any memorial-symbol devoted to the 1915-1923 Armenian Genocide victims.     

We, the undersigned, ask that you consider our righteous wish and allow the [Armenian] community to place a plaque devoted to victims of the 1915-1923 Armenian Genocide,” the aforesaid petition reads.
