All these acts of Cultural Genocide are equally apalling to the physical destruction of human life commited by the turkish state.

Turkey must be demanded to protect what does not belong to her, which is the legacy of the civilizations, and especially the Greek, that flourished for thousands of years on what is now Turkey, before they were brutally exterminated.
