Minorities targeted by Turkey and other actors in the Middle East have been in the news this weekend, which marked the 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The Turkish Parliament once again refused to acknowledge the mass killings as genocide, despite the deaths of up to 1.5 million Christians in 1915 and the following years.
In North and East Syria, where an Armenian minority continues to thrive, members of another local Christian minority population were able to celebrate Easter, having themselves survived recent violence at the hands of ISIS.
Meanwhile, protesters have been targeted in both Turkey and the UK, with demonstrators in Turkey demanding women’s rights and demonstrators in the UK condemning Iraqi Kurdish Prime Minister Barzani both being targeted by the police forces of the respective countries.
