The Deportation Expropriation Abduction Torture Massacre And Starvation By The Occupying Turks
In the name of Honor and Justice,
In the name of spilled innocent Blood,
In the name of our Free Country,
In the name of God and his Glory,
We are raising our voices.
Between the years 1895 and 1923, the Armenian people were subjected to deportation, expropriation, abduction, torture, massacre and starvation by the occupying Turks. The great bulk of the Armenian population was forcibly removed from Armenia and Anatolia to Syria, where the vast majority was sent into the desert to die of thirst and hunger. Large numbers of Armenians were methodically massacred throughout the Ottoman Empire. Women and children were abducted and horribly abused. The entire wealth of the Armenian people was expropriated. As a result, some 1.5 Million Armenians were killed or died of starvation.
