Demonstration Part of Diaspora-Wide #ArtsakhStrong Advocacy Campaign


WASHINGTONAmericans of Armenian heritage from across the Washington, D.C. area gatheredon Fri., April 8,outside the Azerbaijani Embassy for a protest against Baku’s ongoing military attacks against Nagorno-Karabagh. The demonstration was organized by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Sebouh Gomideh, in cooperation with the Soorp Khatch Armenian Apostolic Church, and featured a strong showing of area youth from the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF), Armenian General Athletic Union (Homenetmen), and the local Hamasdegh Armenian School.

The Armenian crowd of more than 150 rallied outside Baku’s diplomatic mission, just off of Washington’s famed Embassy Row, brandishing printed banners and chanting pro-peace messages. They were met by a small counter-protest drawn from the families of Azerbaijani Embassy staffcelebrating the Aliyev governments brutal onslaught that resulted in more than 100 casualties on both sides, including the death of 12-year-old boy and the execution and mutilation of an elderly Armenian couple in Talish.
“We stood strong today at Azerbaijan’s Embassy in Washingtonin concert with Armenians in cities across the globe who are protesting Baku’s violenceto send a powerful message to Ilham Aliyev to stop his aggression against Nagorno-Karabagh,” said ARF Sebouh Chapter Chairman and Chairman of the Soorp Khatch Armenian Apostolic Church Board of Trustees Aram Sarafian. As Americans, we are appalled at Azerbaijan’s reckless disregard for human lifewhether Armenian or Azeriand the Aliyev regime’s deliberate violation of the 1994 ceasefire and ongoing negotiations brokered by the United States and other OSCE Minsk Group countries. Our commitment to a free and independent Artsakh is unyielding, and we continue to work to ensure the safety and security of the Armenian people.

On April 2, just days after meeting with U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington, D.C., Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev attacked Nagorno-Karabagh with heavy artillery and advanced weaponry that led to the death of more than 30 Armenians and scores of Azerbaijanis. More than 60 Armenian American organizations have called on President Barack Obama to clearly and publicly condemn Azerbaijans attack and put in place concrete measures to ensure peace, including the zeroing out of all military assistance to Azerbaijan and enforcing Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act restrictions on U.S. aid to that country. The groups also called for the implementation of the Royce-Engel peace proposals and expanded assistance to the people of Artsakh to rebuild areas destroyed by Azerbaijani bombings.
