Since the publication of the Foreign Minsiter’s letter , the Armenian Lobby has become increasingly shrill in its criticism, and protest over the Australian government’s position on the events of 1915.
The simple fact is that the Australian government does not recognise the events of 1915 as amounting to a genocide. This, of course, sent the Armenian Lobby into a complete meltdown. They have, since June 2014, gone into a lobbying overdrive in order to try to get the government to change its position. Not being able, on this occasion, to put pressure on politicians to force them to do what they wanted, the Armenain lobby group is forced to adopt new tactics.
