    This is the best activity that i have read how to show the world and mainly the Turkish official to accept once fo all their crime against humanity.

    I should say that all Armenian communities around the world should do the same because it is better to attract millions in this way in few hours rather than pay enormous money for other kind of advertisement.

    Come on Los Angeles do the same it is your turn.

    Another example of the relentless pursuit of justice by the descendants of the victims of the Genocide.
    It is an honor that each of us carries and must pass to our children. God bless these patriots around the world!

    “If he denies his grandmother being Armenian, is he going to recognize “The Armenian Genocide”…?”
    He put the journalist who said in prison for 8 months …I hope he is released by now and left Turkey.
