95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

Today is the 95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The deliberate and systematic destruction (genocide) of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I.[1] It was implemented through wholesale massacres and deportations, with the deportations consisting of forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. The total number of Armenians that were killed is 1,500,000. Turkey till this day is in complete denial of the genocide. This is total bs.

Every year on this day the Armenian people gather in different locations to remember the armenians that were massacred and to spread recognition of what happened. One location is the Armenian Genocide Monument in Montebello where about 5,000 people gather. That is just one of the locations of many all over the world.

I might be heading over there in a little bit, if I do, then I will post some images right here soon.
