SoCal Armenian community marks genocide anniversary

SoCal Armenian community marks genocide anniversary

Junior finance minister Menno Snel attended a ceremony to mark the 103rd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on behalf the Dutch parliament on Tuesday, April 24, DutchNews.nl says. Thousands of Armenians and their supporters are expected to make their annual trek to the event, carrying flags and signs denouncing the genocide and calling on the United States government to officially recognize it.

A second rally, organized by the Armenian Genocide Committee, will begin around midday at Pan Pacific Park at 7600 Beverly Blvd., ending at the Turkish Consulate at 6300 Wilshire Blvd.

LAPD officials said all streets affected by the march will be closed from 10 a.m.to 6 p.m.

Whereas Armenia, joined by its powerful diaspora institutions around the world, describe the killings as "genocide" with a highly inflated estimate of up to 1.5 million deaths.

In outsourcing US leadership on genocide prevention to Erdogan - who openly undermines USA interests, attacks USA allies, threatens USA troops, imprisons American clergy, and even orders the beating of American citizens - President Trump is emboldening a foreign dictator who revels in the public spectacle of having bullied successive American presidents into silence on Turkey's still unpunished murder of millions Christians.

There was also a large demonstration in California's "Little Armenia" on Tuesday.

During the meeting, the Queen made a remark about her preferred successor as the head of the Commonwealth . Elizabeth was born on 21 April, 1926, and became queen in 1952 at the age of 25.


Trump continued a practice of recent USA presidents to condemn the massacres, but not to use the word genocide in describing the deaths of Armenians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said it is Turkey's "conscientious responsibility to share the historical pain of Armenian citizens" in a statement sent to the Armenian Church in Istanbul.

In presenting the resolution, Paylan read from the text of the draft saying "According to a census conducted in 1914, approximately two million Armenians lived in the Ottoman Empire".

Supervisor Hilda Solis said recalling the atrocities suffered would help "prevent such horrific events from ever occurring again".

"We're never going to stop until we get our recognition and our justice", Ashod Mooradian said.

Pashinyan said he would not accept a new prime minister drawn from the ranks of the Republican Party, which Sarksyan, the man he forced to resign, still leads.
