Garo Paylan nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2020

ArmInfo. Head of the International women's union of Hamshen Armenians <HAMSHENIAN>, the deputy of the Parliament of Western Armenia Saida Ohanyan sent an appeal to the Nobel Committee with a request for the award of the  Nobel Peace Prize 2020 to the Turkish Parliament Member of Armenian  origin Garo Paylan.

Ohanyan argued her proposal, that Garo Paylan is a person who has  dedicated all his life to the protection of the violated rights of  the Armenian as well as other indigenous peoples of the Greater  Middle East including Western Armenia, Syria, Iraq and Turkey itself.

"Today, he is one of the few people who undertook responsibility for  protecting the human values and religious and ethnic minorities of  the region.  The seeds of peace, tolerance and mutual understanding  between people of different nationalities and faiths sown by Paylan  are already giving positive results even in Turkish society. 

And this takes place despite the ongoing pressure and real threats  against the deputy from pro-government nationalist and extremist  forces, adherents of the tyrannical regime of Erdogan, more than once  requiring the cessation of his political and humanistic activities",  Ohanyan noted.

To note, the goals of <HAMSHENIAN> organization are: the protection  of women`s rights; the international recognition and condemnation of  the Armenian Genocide in 1894-1923 committed in our historical  Motherland in Western Armenia, Hamshen; the protection of the world's  other indigenous peoples and their rights given and guaranteed them  by the world community.
