French Senate adopts the Genocide denial criminalization bill

Yesterday, the French senate passed the bill criminalizing Genocide denial with 127 senators voting in favor and 86 against.

I wanted to share some interesting links, news and articles I found on the Internet.

and here’s a video of the Armenians in France who gathered in front of the senate during the vote. They are singing Zartig Lao.

The lyrics of Zartir Lao:

Խուժան ասկեար զօրք է ժողվեր
Եկեր Մշոյ դաշտն է պատեր.
Սուլթան կ՚ուզէ ջնջել մզի
Զարթիր լաօ, մռնիմ քզի։

Խեղճ մշեցին մեռաւ լալով,
Օտար երկիրներ ման գալով,
Մեռաւ թուրքի հարկը տալով,
Զարթիր լաօ, մռնիմ քզի։

Ինչ անիծեմ թուրք ասկեարին,
Որ սպաննեց ջոջ Աբոյին,
Մեր յոյս թողեց օրօրոցին,
Զարթիր լաօ, մռնիմ քզի։

Khoujan asgyar zork eh joghver
Yegel Msho tshdn eh badel,
Soultan G’ouzeh chnchel mzee,
Zartir lao, mrnim kzi.

Kheghdj mshetsin merav lalov,
Odar yergirner man kalov
Merav tourkin harguh dalov,
Zartir lao, mrnim kzi.

Inch anidzem tourk asgyarin,
Vor esbannets choch Apoyin,
Mer houys toghets ororotsin,
Zartir lao, mrnim kzi
