Armenian Communities Gather for Silent Protest at UN in NY, Vienna and Geneva

NEW YORK – On October 29, 12-3 PM, the Armenian community of New York will gather at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, East 47th Street between First and Second Avenues in Manhattan, for a silent protest at the United Nations to highlight the demand of member states to work urgently and join the growing call of self-determination for the indigenous Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh, and the recognition of an Independent Artsakh.

Amidst increasing hostility and unilateral war aggressions by Azerbaijan—bolstered by Turkey and the former's well-documented deployment of terrorist mercenary militias—the call for remedial secession has gained deep urgency to save innocent human lives.

Since the launch of Azerbaijan’s premeditated military and media offensive on September 27, consequential actions to halt the aggressors of a deliberate ethnic cleansing, have been seemingly absent.

From habitual violations of three brokered humanitarian ceasefires and deliberate use of illegal weapons on unarmed population, to the targeting of civilian territories and historic cathedrals resulting in war crimes – Azerbaijan has prompted the warnings of Genocide Watch and the International Association of Genocide Scholars. Each has since issued public statements of concern regarding the demonstrated intent for genocide of the region's ethnic Armenians. 

The collective silence of the United Nations during such a critical moment is met with a silent protest to showcase the loss of faith in crimes against humanity – as the continuous lack of reproving by international powers emboldens Turkey and Azerbaijan’s unified objective of genocidal intent under the aphorism of “One Nation, Two States.”

The demonstration will commence against the backdrop of a performance of the duduk, an ethnic Armenian instrument that dates back to 1200 BC.
