FRENCH ARMENIAN GOES ON HUNGER STRIKE DEMANDING MEETING WITH PRESIDENT CHIRAC

MARSEILLE, JANUARY 12, ARMENPRESS: A French Armenian woman in Marseille went on hunger strike on January 6 in an Armenian church requesting a meeting with president Jacques Chirac whom she wants to put forth Turkey’s recognition of the 1915 Armenian genocide as precondition for joining the EU.

Les Nouvelles d’Armenie Internet website reports that the 50-year Koular Gharibian, a writer, explained what had prompted her to take the step. ” I was outraged by debates in France over Turkey’s possible membership with the European Union. Germany is part of the EU, but it had acknowledged the Holocaust and apologized to Jews ,” she said.

She first requested a meeting with Chirac in 2004 October announcing her decision to go on hunger strike if he refused to accept her.

She sent a second letter to Chirac before going on hunger strike saying she would end it after Chirac agrees to meet her and gives assurances that Turkey would be allowed to join the EU after recognizing the 1915 genocides and apologizing to Armenians.

“Would president Chirac allow me to fell victim to the hunger strike?” she said.
