LOS ANGELES–European Union leaders will meet in Brussels on Thursday and Friday to decide on whether to set a date for Turkey’s membership negotiations into the Union.
The Armenian National Committee of Europe has undertaken efforts to organize a massive demonstration in Brussels on December 17 to oppose Turkey’s membership. Armenia’s from throughout Europe are expected to join that protest to present the deman’s of the Armenian people.
In joining those efforts–as well as other protests that are scheduled to take place throughout the diaspora–the Armenian Youth Federation will stage a peaceful protest at the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Los Angeles at 3 p.m. on Thursday–December 16.
Armenian youth are expected to present a letter to the Consul General of the Netherlands to convey their opposition to Turkish EU membership based on specific Armenian and human rights concerns. The Dutch currently head the European Union presidency.
The Consul General of the Netherlands is located at 11766 Wilshire Boulevard (Wilshire and Granville) in Los Angeles.
