On Friday, 24 Apr 15, a large march took place in Los Angeles. Between 100,000 and 130,000 people took part in the Armenian Genocide March for Justice, which signifies a global demand for justice by Armenians worldwide and all people of good will.
The actual march started in eastern Hollywood, (Little Armenia), and made its way to Wilshire Blvd, heading towards the Turkish Consulate. The march passed several LA landmarks, including the Hollywood Strip and the La Brea Tar Pits. A stage had been set up just past/west of the consulate building- several musical acts and speeches were performed there, with a mass of dignitaries on hand as well.
The photos above and next week’s post will be from this event.
And here’s to the shame that yet another President has brought, by refusing to call genocide a genocide.
