No Place For Denial
The site, NoPlaceForDenial, was created and is managed by an ad-hoc group of Armenian-American activists residing in and around Watertown, Massachusetts who are outraged by the No Place for Hate (NPFH) program’s association with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that continues to deny the Armenian Genocide and has sided with the Government of Turkey to defeat Armenian Genocide related resolutions and legislation in the U.S. Congress.
NO PLACE FOR DENIAL STATEMENT AND DEMANDS
Municipalities that believe in universal human rights must sever ties with the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate program because the ADL:
1. Refuses to acknowledge unambiguously the Armenian Genocide
2. Engages in genocide denial by echoing Turkish calls for a “historians commission”
3. Lobbies against U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has for years engaged in genocide denial by refusing to acknowledge that the massacres of 1.5 million Armenians by the Turkish government beginning in 1915 constitute genocide. Rather, the ADL has steadfastly allied itself with the denialist government of Turkey by calling for a historians’ commission to study the issue and by actively lobbying to prevent passage of a United States Congressional resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
This website contains a wealth of information about the ADL's anti-Armenian activity:
