Turkish authorities have shut down a Genocide remembrance march planned in Istanbul. They allowed people to walk silently, but no posters or press conference were allowed (press interviews partially succeeded with disruptions). The organizers of the march, including several European Union and French politicians, were upset over the censorship.

The ban was placed not by the newly elected CHP mayor of the city, but by federal authorities, says Turkish-Armenian MP Garo Paylan.

European MP said the human rights situation is rapidly worsening in Turkey, and that Europe should place sanctions. He urged the Turkish government to face the reality and accept its history.

Garo Paylan has cursed the perpetrators of the Armenian genocide on Facebook.

Donald Trump: “Today, we commemorate the Meds Yeghern and honor the memory of those who suffered in one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20th century. Beginning in 1915, one and a half million Armenians were deported, massacred, or marched to their deaths in the final years of the Ottoman Empire.".... "We stand by Armenian people"....

He used the term Mets Yeghern as in previous years, but not "genocide", for political reasons. On 1981, president Ronald Reagan used the term genocide. He did so after being asked by Kenneth Khachikian, who was a White House staff member and genocide survivor's son.
