The new resolution of the City Council of Willoughby is another step for the preparation of Australia in relation to the recognition of the Genocide of the Armenians. Presently after many years of struggle, two out of six cities of Australia have recognized this Genocide and actually within the context of the trinity of genocides, that being the Assyrian, the Armenian and the Greeks of Pontus. This means that the struggle needs to continue for the 4 cities and the territories which of course belong to the federal government of the Commonwealth. And the example of Willoughby shows with strategy, at a tactical level since this can happen also in other cities that actually belong to States which didn’t yet recognize the Genocide at their own level. Thus in each state and in each territory is an element of a strategic mix of Australia. It is therefore important that the decisions of the cities get coordinated, so that they constitute a solid foundation for the next stage. And for those who think that all these happen without struggle and without sacrifices, it suffices to examine the facts that took place also due to the anniversary of ANZAC. Consequently, we must be pleased and for these acts at the level of the council, because all the stages have their difficulties due to inertia, indifference and pressures that we receive by the turkish propaganda committees which try to annul the struggle of the recognition of the Genocides.
