To know your past, is to know yourself.

The thorny question of the resettlement of the Assyrian and Armenian refugees from the Urmia region is becoming urgent. It is estimated that about 2,000 stayed on under the Turks, but 13,000 are still in Mesopotamia, 5,000 at Hamadan and Kasvin, while 1,000 have already arrived at Tabriz and are filtering back to their homes. Firm measures are necessary to regulate the restitution of property and to repress strife. The Kurdish chief Simko heads a movement to prevent their return. The Jungalis of Gilan still refuse submission to the Government, despite patient negotiations, and the situation has reached the point where sterner measures may be necessary to restore the allegiance of that province. Three noted brigands, Rejebali, Jafarkuli, and Rezajuzdani, are still marauding in the Isfahan and Yezd provinces, but the Bakhtiap Governor of Isfahan has given an undertaking to end their activities at an early date.

United Nations: International Day of Democracy

September 15

On September 15, 2009, the IPU and parliaments around the world will be celebrating the second International Day of Democracy, declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007.

In its resolution A/RES/62/7 establishing the International Day of Democracy, the United Nations noted that "while democracies share common features, there is no single model of democracy" and that "democracy does not belong to any country or region". The International Day of Democracy is meant both to celebrate democracy and to serve as a reminder that the need to promote and protect democracy is as urgent now as ever.

The choice of September 15 for the International Day of Democracy corresponds to the adoption in September 1997 by the IPU of a Universal Declaration on Democracy. That Declaration affirms the principles of democracy, the elements and exercise of democratic government, and the global scope of democracy.
