Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan has resigned just days into his term following tumultuous protests. It’s hoped that international recognition of the 1915 Armenian genocide will remain a priority for his replacement.

Days before the 103th anniversary, protesters marched through Sydney for federal recognition of the 1915 Armenian genocide. Despite many other countries having done so already, Australia still has not officially recognised the events as genocide.  Since the original Anzac Day and the Gallipoli campaign, which began just one day after the genocide’s beginning, Australia has had ties to Turkey. But over a century later, many think it’s time for recognition.
