Six speakers of Australia’s Parliament approved earlier in the week the nation’s first-ever motion for the government to officially acknowledge the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Genocides.

The motion’s success with the Australian Parliament’s House of Representatives is due to the Joint Justice Initiative, a movement launched in February 2020 in order to get the motion passed.

“The House of Representatives has spoken. The Australian Parliament’s largest and most representative legislative chamber has unanimously called on Australia’s Government to recognize the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Genocides,” Hai Kayserian, the Executive Director of the Armenian National Committee of Australia, said in response to the news.
