Crowds March to Turkish Consulate in L.A. to Commemorate Armenian Genocide

HeadlineApr 25, 2017
H07 armenian protest

In Los Angeles, tens of thousands of people marched to the Turkish Consulate Monday to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

Antranik Ghimbesian: “We gather here every year because they are not accepting the genocide. The government of Turkey, they are a dictator, especially now. Erdogan, he’s a dictator, OK? He is not accepting. They have to accept this is a genocide. It happened.”

The Turkish government continues to deny the genocide, which saw an estimated 1.5 million Armenians exterminated through direct killing, starvation, torture and forced death marches.
