A Call to Action: UYA to March Once Again

It’s that time of the year when Unified Young Armenians (UYA) urges everyone, Armenian and non-Armenian, to participate in all events commemorating the Armenian Genocide.

This month, UYA will be holding two events. The first one will be held on April 23, 2010, at 8:30 pm in the lot across from Glendale Community College. There will be a youth rally, candlelight vigil, musical performances, and speeches.

In addition, as every year, UYA will be holding the April 24, 2010 march in Little Armenia, Hollywood, which throughout the years has grown to be the largest event commemorating the Armenian Genocide in the Diaspora. From UYA’s website: “On this 95th year anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, thousands will protest the ongoing denial by the Turkish regime and will remind President Obama that American leadership should not be caving in to the Turkish pressures.”

Armenains in Sidney Demand Genocide Recognition at Turkish Consulate

The Turkish government’s ongoing denials of the Armenian Genocide was met head on over the weekend by more than 500 Australian Armenians.

The demonstrators were joined by Sydney’s Assyrian and Greek communities. But before long, this group was met with opposition from Australia’s Turkish population. Nearly 100 Police officers were on the scene to contain the opposing mob from clashing into the Armenians.
