JAVAKHK NEEDS HELP OF THE WHOLE ARMENIAN WORLD

The democratic alliance “United Javakhk”, a grassroot NGO advocating for human rights of Javakhk Armenians, was attacked and crashed without any solid legal grounds by the Georgian special police units in the city of Akhalkalak.

At the current moment:

* Over 500 Georgian special police officers are stationed in Javakhk region of Georgia (this is in addition to the regular police force);
* Over 20 members of “United Javakhk were thrown to jail without due course/legal procedures;
* The Georgian operatives too control over local internet provider and independent radio station. A number of other local media outlets are shut down, which effectively limits freedom of the media and access of the general public to infromation for the local population;
* The office of “United Javakhk” had been illegally searched and weapons were “found” (allegedly all planted by the Georgian police units);
* The population of Akhlkalak and the entire region is under the constant threat of a illegal arrests, beatings and other mass violations of human rights;
* Armenian and Georgian media and state authorities do not comment the situation

ACT NOW!

Call your local Armenian grassroot organizations and ask them to act – issue statements, write letters to international human rights organizations, spread the word about the injustice in Javakhk etc.

Protest mass arrests, beatings and killings in the region. Demand Georgian authorities to free the arrested “Unified Javakhk” members, who in fact are harrassed and arrested for their political views andmust be seen as political prisoners. Demand adequate transparent investigation of the matter by combined Armenian-Georgian task force and/or by independent and trusted international experts.

  3. I think we Armenians are very ambitious, we were under Turkey’s genocide, Azerbaijan hate us because of Kharabakh. I think we should stay in what we have and leave Georgians alone. It is true Armenians are brothers of Georgian but I do not like Armenians action in Zavakh province. They are acting as criminals.

  4. You do not have any sound proof what you wrote:

    “* The office of “United Javakhk” had been illegally searched and weapons were “found” (allegedly all planted by the Georgian police units);
    * The population of Akhlkalak and the entire region is under the constant threat of a illegal arrests, beatings and other mass violations of human rights;”

    First of all you conclude for yourself that members of Javakhk that in essence is an organization promoting separatist aspirations, did not have weapon and they were just set up by the police. Why? Why do you a priori decide that they sere set up? I have reason to believe that they had weapon and police arrested them before they had a chance to use it.
    Secondly, if you claim that there are illegal arrests, beatings and mass violations of human rights, be so kind to provide some proof of that. Photos, videos or reports from international organizations (such as HRW).
    If you can not provide such a proof, then be so kind to stop this propaganda.
