Aufruf zur Beteiligung an einer gewaltfreien Aktion gegen die NATO am 4. April 2009

Continuity and discontinuity characterise a (post-)conflict environment. Certain aspects of pre-war configurations persist throughout an armed conflict, others change drastically.

Placing genocide within an appropriate legal context is the best path to reconciliation between Turkey and Armenia. Aljazeera opinion piece by Richard Falk and Hilal Elver
"It is common knowledge that the Armenian diaspora has long been seeking to induce key governments around the world to make formal declarations to the effect that what happened in 1915 was in fact "genocide", and some 25 governments have done so, as have many lesser political entities such as sub-divisions of the state or cities. These efforts to legalise historical truth, as distinct from mourning historical events, is itself a political gimmick that does little to resolve the dispute, and makes diplomatic compromise more difficult and accommodation virtually impossible.
