Sydney’s Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians unite to demand recognition of 1915 genocides

YEREVAN, 12 APRIL, ARMENPRESS. Sydney’s Armenian, Assyrian and Greek communities will once again rally together in Sydney’s central business district, calling on the Australian Prime Minister and Federal Government to recognise the 1915 Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Genocides.

The annual #MarchForJustice will take place on Sunday, 21 April, with community members gathering at the Hyde Park Archibald Fountain at 2pm before descending into the streets of Sydney’s CBD.

March For Justice organising committee member Nanor Shokayan, who also serves as the Chairperson of the Armenian Youth Federation of Australia Central Executive, said, “A crime unpunished is a crime repeated – that is what the descendants of survivors of the 1915 Genocides are witnessing, our compatriots living in their ancestral homelands remain under threat from the criminal and brutal regime’s of Turkey and Azerbaijan.”

“Until they are held accountable for their actions 109 years ago, they will never stop,” Shokayan added.
