Protest Calling on Obama to Recognize Genocide
On Thursday, April 21 at 3 p.m., all Armenian-Americans in Southern California are urged to join in a public protest to be held outside a fundraising event for President Barack H. Obama at the Sony Studios located at 10202 W. Washington Boulevard in Culver City, California.
President Obama will be visiting the Los Angeles area as part of his re-election campaign just three days prior to April 24th. He must hear our community’s profound disappointment with his failure to honor his campaign promise that as President, he would recognize the Armenian Genocide and deliver justice to the Armenian people. Being the largest Armenian community in the Diaspora, we must turn out en masse to send our message loud and clear not only to him, but to all of the national press that will be assembled there.
We strongly urge all Armenians to join us in making our voices heard.
Buses will transport protestors starting at 1:30 p.m. from St. Mary’s Church in Glendale, Rose & Alex Pilibos School in Hollywood and Ferrahian High School in Encino.
