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.
