Artsakh to stage torchlight procession for Armenian Genocide recognition
The youth chapter of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Dashnaktsutyun will stage a torchlight procession in Stepanakert, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh), to shed a light on the Armenian Genocide and demand recognition and justice on April 23.
“Nothing has changed in the program of our enemies since 1915. The same genocidal policy is applied to Artsakh today,” people behind the initiative said in a statement.
“Therefore, saying no to that policy, making our desire to live audible to everyone, raising national resistance becomes the duty of every Artsakh citizen.”
The people of Artsakh join folks in Armenia every year to take up torches and march for the condemnation of the Armenian Genocide.
