Papian, Hachikian to Headline ARF Day Celebrations

ARF_119_New_English_W-SPEAKERSGLENDALE—Historian Ara Papian and Armenian National Committee of America chairman Ken Hachikian will be the featured keynote speakers at the ARF Day Celebration scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 6 at the Glendale High School Auditorium.

Papian, who is the director of the “Modus Vivendi” Center in Armenia, has been at the forefront of providing legal analyses documenting the inherent dangers of the Armenia-Turkey protocols. In a recent open letter to Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Papian outlined the provisions of the Sevres Treaty and the subsequent Wilsonian boundaries as basis for the illegality of the protocols.

As ANCA Chairman, Hachikian has led the organization in the fight for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide in Congress and has guided the Armenian-American grassroots movement in the last decade. Hachikian has been an outspoken opponent of the protocols.

Under the banner of “United Armenia with All Armenians,” this year’s annual ARF celebration will mark the party’s 119th anniversary and will feature cultural performances and other presentations.

The event, which is open to the public and free, will take place at 6 p.m. on Sunday, December 6 at the Glendale High School Auditorium, 1440 East Broadway.
