95th Anniversary of Armenian Genocide To Be Commemorated in Times Square

NEW YORK–On Sunday, April 25, 2010, for the 25th year, thousands of Armenian Americans and people against genocide will gather in Times Square from 2-4 PM to commemorate the first genocide of the 20th Century, the Armenian Genocide.

This year’s commemoration will underscore the theme: “Turkey is the Question, America is the Answer.”

This historic event will pay tribute to the 1.5 million Armenians who were annihilated by the Young Turk Government of the Ottoman Empire (1915-1923) and address the consequences plaguing humanity till this day.

The commemoration will come amid heightened attention on Armenia and Turkey. Government leaders and the news media have recently been preoccupied with Turkish-Armenians relations and the prospects for opening the closed borders in the Caucasus.

Major political figures will speak at the memorial event as well as civic, humanitarian, and educational leaders.

This event is sponsored by the Knights & Daughters of Vartan, a national fraternal organization, and co-sponsored by the Armenian General Benevolent Union, Armenian Assembly of America, Armenian National Committee of America, Armenian Democratic Liberal Party, and the Armenian Council of America. Participating Organizations include the Diocese of the Armenian Church, Prelacy of the Armenian Church, Armenian Missionary Association of America, Armenian Missionary Association, Armenian Evangelical Union, Armenian Catholic Eparchy, and several national Armenian youth organizations.

    I would like to see representatives from the Armenian Parliament at this Commemoration ceremony.
    It would be politically correct to send an invitation to Armenia. This will send a very strong message to all concerned, especially the USA .
    We applaud the organisers. The choice of the venue is truly historical. I wish I could be there.
