An enormous achievement for the Assyrians around the world!

AACF – Officiel:

It’s done. Today, April 29, 2024, the National Assembly has just voted unanimously on a resolution recognizing the Assyro-Chalden Genocide of 1915–1918, presented by the deputy Anne Laure BLIN, chairman of the Renaissance group, and the deputy LR Sylvain Maillard.

Remember, at our Annual Grand Dinner just 2 months ago, former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who had honored us with his presence, in his speech, called on the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, to officially recognize the genocide of Assyro-Chaldeans by France.

At the dinner on February 27, 2024, which brought together dozens of parliamentarians and other political figures, MPs Sylvain Maillard and Anne-Laure Blin committed to presenting the draft resolution to their colleagues and getting it voted very quickly, in a transpartisan manner, as this was the case a year earlier in the Senate, a similar resolution had been tabled by Senators Valérie Boyer and Bruno Retailleau An overwhelming majority had adopted it.

The Working Committee on the Assyro-Chaldean Genocide, chaired by our dear friend Mr. François Pupponi , honorary MP, rejoices at all the efforts made since the beginning to work tirelessly alongside senators, deputies, Professor Joseph Yacoup and his wife Claire, and all the people sensitive to our just cause, and especially for having been able to include in the history of Assyro-Chaldenians in France and in the world the dates of February 27, 2023 and April 29, 2024

It is the French Parliament that officially adopted this resolution recognizing the Assyro-Chalden Genocide of 1915-1918 and we will continue to work for a law to be passed so that France finally recognizes the 1915 Genocide in the same way as our Armenian and Pontic Greek brothers and thus allow the community to be able to pay dignified tribute to the 250,000 martyrs victims of the first genocide of the twentieth century.

We were able to meet at Bourbon with our friend deputy, Dominique Da Silva and our brother François Pupponi honorary deputy, to observe a minute of silence for our martyrs and share this solemn moment.
