SoCal Armenian community marks genocide anniversary

The 24th of April is the official day of remembrance for the victims of the Armenian Genocide which took place in Ottoman Turkey in 1915. It started near Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue in Little Armenia. 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.

In a statement sent to the Armenian Church in Istanbul over a commemoration ceremony for the loss of Armenian lives during World War I, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it is Turkey's "conscientious responsibility to share the historical pain of Armenian citizens".

Last week, one hundred and two U.S. Representatives - including the Chairmen of the House Foreign Affairs and Intelligence Committees - called on President Donald Trump to reject Turkey's gag-rule by honestly and accurately commemorating the Armenian Genocide this April 24th.

Los Angeles police said all the affected streets will be closed through 3 p.m. "1.5 million lost their lives". State and federal lawmakers also attended the event, held at a monument built in 1968, the first created on public land outside of Armenia.

Today marks the 103 anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

Dozens of members of the Armenian community gathered in Montebello on Sunday for an event to commemorate the Armenian Genocide.

"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.

Ankara has repeatedly proposed the creation of a joint commission of historians from Turkey and Armenia plus worldwide experts to tackle the issue.

We will press ahead with our work to end USA complicity in Ankara's obstruction of justice, in order to put in place a USA policy that actively pressures Ankara to abandon its denials, reckon with its responsibilities, and engage directly with Armenian stakeholders toward a truthful, just, and comprehensive global resolution of this crime against humanity.
