April 24–Armenian Genocide Commemoration Day–is fast approaching. 91 years after the Genocide–Armenian people are still deprived of their rights. Turkey refuses to acknowledge the Genocide–which it thoroughly planned and perpetrated–and is now launching denialist campaigns throughout the world–before the international community.
Turkey’s denial is not a new crime. It adds to the still unpunished crime against humanity.
The Armenian people will pursue their rights until a just solution is reached. The demand for these rights has only gotten stronger–as Armenia’s continue political activities in Europe–the US–and the Middle East–in order put press on Turkey–and to gain genocide recognition and restitution for the Armenian people.
In order to make our voice heard–the political–cultural–and community organizations of California Armenia’s will commemorate those who lost their lives in the Genocide together. The central commemorative event will be held at the Genocide Monument in Montebello on Sunday–April 23 at 4 PM.
We call on all Armenia’s in California to attend this event so that our voice will be heard throughout the world.
Further information will be provided by the media.
