Dieudonné olayının[1] yol açtığı isterik hengâme Fransa’da yankılanadursun, Danıştay Mahkemesi’nin gösterilerin yasaklanmasını onayan ihtiyati tedbir kararlarının ardından gözler doğal olarak Avrupa İnsan Hakları Mahkemesi’ne çevrildi. Bu hararetli ortamda Avrupa’nın yargı organları, ifade özgürlüğü ne zaman Paris’te sınırlandırılsa, Strazburg’da yüceltilsin diye sık sık toplanmaya çağrıldı. Son dönemdeki 17 Aralık 2013 tarihli Perinçek vs. İsviçre davası kararı Fransız kamuoyundaki tartışmalara bu vesileyle konu oldu. Bu olayda Mahkeme İsviçre’yi, Ermeni soykırımını inkâr niteliğindeki [contester] ifadeleri cezai müeyyideye tabi tuttuğu için kesin olarak suçlu buldu.

Liberté d’Expression (Art. 10 CEDH) : Le Négationnisme, Prisme Révélateur du Dilemme Européen Face à la Lutte Contre l’Extrémisme*

Nicolas Hervieu

Alors que résonnent encore en France les fracas hystérisés de l’affaire Dieudonné, les regards se tournent naturellement vers la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme au lendemain des décisions rendues en référé par le Conseil d’Etat pour avaliser l’interdiction de spectacles. Dans ce contexte enflammé, la jurisprudence européenne a souvent été convoquée pour affirmer que la liberté d’expression serait sublimée à Strasbourg là où elle est limitée à Paris. En ce sens, un récent arrêt Perinçek c. Suisse en date du 17 décembre 2013 a été évoqué dans le débat public français. Dans cette affaire, la Cour a certes condamné la Suisse pour avoir sanctionné pénalement des propos contestant le génocide arménien.

The Academy Awards have made progress in terms of racial representation. This year a film about slavery is the clear front-runner in many of the major categories, and if “12 Years a Slave” or “Gravity” wins best picture, it would be the first time a movie by a nonwhite director takes the prize. It’s also possible that Lee Daniels (“The Butler”) could join Steve McQueen (“12 Years”) and Alfonso Cuaron (“Gravity”) to make best director a majority-minority category for the first time ever.

One Hundred Years of Abandonment

by Azad Alik

By Ayda Erbal and Talin Suciyan

The Armenian Weekly
April 2011 Magazine

The history of the Ottoman Armenians in the 19th century[1] is a history of great promises but also of greater abandonment. More than 200 Ottoman-Armenian intellectuals who were arrested the night of April 24, 1915 and the two weeks that followed possessed the damning knowledge that they were left alone. Zohrab’s Unionist friends, with whom he had dined and played cards, would choose not to stop his assassination. But abandonment will not abandon the Armenians. The survivors in the camps of Mesopotamia were alone, as were those hiding in the secluded mountains or villages of Anatolia. And those who survived through conversion or forced concubinage were left alone not only in the summer of 1915, but also in the hundred years that have followed.

turkey 300x211 Erbal and Suciyan: One Hundred Years of AbandonmentThe surviving Istanbul-Armenians who staged a book-burning ceremony were on their own
too.[2] Compelled to imitate the Nazi party’s book-burning campaigns, they would gather in the backyard of Pangalti Armenian Church, build a book-burning altar, put Franz Werfel’sThe Forty Days of Musa Dagh, along with his picture on the altar, and burn it to the ground. As a last act of symbolic perversion forced upon them, they would not only denounce the author, but also denounce the book’s content, hence denouncing themselves and denying their own history.Hayganus Mark, Hagop Mintzuri, Aram Pehlivanyan, Zaven Biberyan, Vartan and Jak Ihmalyan, and the less famous all shared a similar fate, which happened to be that of Hrant Dink too: abandonment.[3]
