Reject the racist resolution against Azerbaijanis

    1. Petition by

      Edwin Garrison

On Jan. 30, 2012, some members of the California State Assembly introduced a draft resolution (ACR 96) that will proclaim February 27, 2012, as a “California Day of Remembrance for the massacres of Armenians in Sumgait, Kirovabad and Baku.”

This draft resolution largely distorts historical facts, presents a one-sided view of the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict and seeks to force the lawmakers into assuming an unjust and biased position in the conflict. The resolution also deliberately disregards a true tragic massacre that occurred in the course of the conflict, namely the Khojaly Massacre of innocent Azerbaijanis, the 20th anniversary of which will be marked on February 26, 2012. “Human Rights Watch” called this 1992 massacre carried out by Armenian military forces against 613 Azerbaijani civilians, including 106 women and 63 children, as "the largest massacre to date in the conflict." Major U.S. media outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, Los Angeles Times and the others reported about the massacre with horror. The executors of 1992 Khojaly Massacre were never brought to justice.

Therefore, sign the petition to urge the California State Assembly members to unanimously reject this flawed, biased, and unjust resolution ACR 96, which encourages racial animosity and hatred.
