On the initiative of the Union of Journalists of Armenia and Armenian media, “Wake up world! Stop the genocide in Artsakh. Stop the Blockade” campaign, with which we raise our voice in defense of our compatriots in Artsakh.
We call on all Armenian media in Armenia and around the world, individual media, international and Armenian media organizations, independent journalists, bloggers to join the campaign by spreading this statement, posting the following banners on media and social media pages until the WAY OF LIFE connects Artsakh to Armenia is open. :
“The Azerbaijani blockade of Artsakh, which has lasted for more than six months, and now with its complete isolation, has led to an extreme humanitarian crisis. 120,000 people in Artsakh live every day under the threat of physical annihilation, loss of their homeland, ethnic cleansing, deprivation of their homes and cradles. Every day, the situation worsens and the crisis threatens human destiny, with people living in conditions of real danger to their lives, being under daily armed siege from Azerbaijan, with no possibility of medical assistance.
The international community’s declaratory calls to disengage Artsakh have no practical consequences, and Azerbaijan continues its anti-human and criminal policy of ethnic cleansing of Artsakh unhindered.
From now on, Armenian media will publish this alert addressed to international organizations, political, scientific, cultural, religious circles of the countries and the world on the front pages of their websites and newspapers, trying to draw the attention of all those who place human life above any geopolitical or economic gain.
With this initiative, we media representatives are taking a step forward in the urgent task of saving human lives.
Tomorrow, it may be too late.
