In July 1995, more than 8,372 Bosniaks in Srebrenica, mainly men and boys, were murdered in cold blood by the Army and Police Forces of Republika Srpska;
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) ruled that the Srebrenica massacre was genocide, which was not just limited to men, but also included women and children, with the youngest victim being a newborn baby;
Motion M-416, passed in the House of Commons on October 19, 2010, recognized July 11 annually as Srebrenica Remembrance Day in Canada;
Motion M-587, passed in the House of Commons on April 24, 2015, included the Srebrenica genocide, and Srebrenica Remembrance Day as part of “Genocide Remembrance, Condemnation and Awareness Month” every April;
Being mindful of the above-mentioned legal rulings, and out of respect for the memory of the victims, it should be illegal to deny the Srebrenica genocide; and
In spite of the international legal judgments, as well as the commemorations in Canada and around the world, there are those who continue to deny the Srebrenica genocide, thereby insulting the memory of the victims, inflicting pain and suffering on the survivors of the genocide, and encouraging the perpetrators.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to recognize the act of denial of the Srebrenica genocide as cruel, inhumane and illegal, and to enact legislation that prohibits the denial of the Srebrenica genocide.
