Argentine-Armenian Community Rally Against Sumgait, Baku and Kirovabad Pogroms at Azeri Embassy

The Armenian community in Argentina rallied on Friday February 27 to the embassy of Azerbaijan to commemorate the 27th anniversary of the massacres of Armenians in Sumgait, Baku and Kirovabad and report the anti-armenian activities of Azeri diplomats in Argentina.

"The killings, persecution, harassment, dispossession and displacement of the Armenians living in Azerbaijan until the late eighties constitutes a crime against humanity that the Azerbaijani State must take responsibility," denounced Ary Assadourian, member of the Armenia Youth Federation (AYF) in his speech. The rally was organized by AYF and was attended by over 300 people along with a number of political organizations that support the Armenian cause.

Moreover, the commission for the centenary of the Armenian Genocide in Buenos Aires, a space that brings together all the institutions of the Armenian community, issued a statement days ago in which they considered that while "the Armenian people and their descendants in many parts of world prepare to commemorate the centenary of the worst disaster suffered throughout its long history," the massacres of Armenians in Azerbaijan "can not be dissociated from the discriminatory policies that the Turkish state and its allies develop in the South Caucasus".
