Call to Picket in NY

The ARF Eastern Region Central Committee has announced a picket this Sat., Oct. 3, from 4-7 p.m. at New York Palace Hotel, 455 Madison Ave. in New York City.

During this time, Armenia President Serge Sarkisian will be speaking to various organizations in the hotel to explain the Armenia-Turkey protocols and listen to responses.

Saturday’s picket will be the community’s LAST CHANCE to let Sarkisian know our position on the protocols.

We know that you have all been closely following the news on the Armenia-Turkey protocols, and the increasingly apparent acceleration of the schedule for their signing and ratification. Now, the signing date has been announced for Oct. 10–less than two weeks away.

Please be present in New York City on Sat., Oct. 3 from 4-7 p.m.

  1. On October 3rd Armenian Americans in New York will have a choice: To stand proud and strong for Hai Tahd, the sacred cause of our ancient nation, or to – by action, or inaction – encourage Serj Sarkisyan as he prepares to give away, with a stroke of his pen, the Armenian rights, dignity, and security that generations of men and women have fought and died to defend.

  2. As Tashnags, things are too late. Why was there no Tashnag protest against Serzh when he first seized power? Tashnagtsootyoon only resigned from the government a year later because of the protocols he started and now the government is ready to sign them in two weeks. As it says, this is the last chance to protest him, but what can a group in NY do to make him change his mind about something planned in two weeks? This is a case of too little, too late. Game over.
