BOSTON, Mass.—On Saturday, November 14, about 80 Armenians from the Greater Boston area gathered in Copley Square to raise awareness of the crisis in Artsakh and the heinous peace deal forced upon Armenia.
Armenian Youth Federation (AYF) members from nearby chapters, such as the Worcester “Aram” and Providence “Varantian” chapters, participated in the protest led by the Greater Boston “Nejdeh” Chapter, as well as many families and non-AYF members.
The intent of this demonstration was to condemn the war crimes that have been and continue to be committed by Azerbaijan. Participants also stressed the importance of recognizing Artsakh and voiced their support for the brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their homeland.
AYF members were equipped with informative signs and QR codes, which allowed passersby on foot or by car to gain more information on the ongoing developments.
Protesters also marched around the nearby church during which time U. Hrag Arakelian read a brief synopsis of the events that have occurred in Artsakh.
The rally for Artsakh went on for nearly two hours. This was the first rally since the newly-signed “peace” agreement between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia. The AYF Greater Boston community pledges to stand for justice and eternal peace for the Armenians of Artsakh.
