Deal With It

Germany has accepted its horrific history in the 1930s and '40s and has dealt with it appropriately. Recently, some 50 million pages of war records have been released to the public. It's called full disclosure.

Turkey, however, is playing another ball game all together. It refuses to acknowledge the horror of the Armenian genocide of 1915-1918. Armenian descendants System of a Down have tried to bring the issue to the public with their film, Screamers.

Frontman Serj Tankian recently sat down with Mother Jones to talk about his nonprofit Axis of Justice with RATM's Tom Morello, and his efforts to bring genocide into the public's discourse as well as our own congress.

Keep yourself informed and stop genocide now!
