Protesters Condemn Turkish Denial of Genocide

LOS ANGELES–More than 800 Armenia’s gathered at the Turkish Consulate in Los Angeles last Friday morning to protest the continued Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide and to condemn Turkey for committing the Genocide.

The protest demonstration–which was organized by the Armenian Youth Federation Central Executive–was also attended by State Assemblyman Scott Wildman and Glendale City Councilman Rafi Manoukian.

Both officials stressed the need for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the US and the international community and praised the Armenian youth for their dedication to the Armenian Cause.

AYF Central Executive member Christopher Guldjian told demonstrators that a delegation had gone inside the Consulate compound to deliver a protest letter to the Turkish Consul General.
