The 100th Armenian Genocide Commemoration – 2015

The 100th Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide is just 6 and a half Months away. Annually on April 24, we gather together in Canada’s Capital Ottawa in the Province of Ontario and we commemorate the Armenian Genocide. The Turkish Ottoman empire and Government is responsible for murdering and massacre of 1.5 Million Armenian’s in 1915 as well as stealing our precious and beautiful land as well as Mount Ararat which will always be Armenia’s.

The Turkish Government to this very day still denies that they ever did commit a Genocide, which is why we need to spread the word as much as possible. 2015 will be the 100th Commemoration. Where ever you are and will be, however you will commemorate, it is important to come together with other Armenian’s and venture out in the public eye, and in public places to voice ourselves and make this a global recognition. Our efforts need to be taken out of our Armenian communities and churches and solely head to Embassies, Consulates, organize public marches in the metropolitan areas of your city where it is densely populated with visible signs, banners, and our Armenia Flag.

Canada Has recognized the Armenian Genocide and we thank Canada so much as other Countries as well who have recognized. It is only a matter of time until the world comes together to raise awareness and recognition, on not only the Armenian genocide, but all other genocides and terrible acts of humanity throughout the world.
We need to spread the word out to everyone. In Canada, we will be heading to Ottawa, Canada in front of the Canadian Parliament, followed by a march to the Turkish Embassy. April 24, 2015. Usually we begin at 12 noon until everyone arrives in Ottawa from buses from Ontario and Quebec from Cambridge, Toronto, Montreal, Laval, and abroad. For up to date information, bus departure times and other questions, please see your Local Canadian Armenian Community Centre Organization to obtain more information.
Also the information will be posted here as well once we get more news soon. In the meantime it is important to spread awareness as much as possible. Social Media is a huge way to raise awareness. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the 100th Centennial in Ottawa, please contact me. Also if you want to do your own research about the Armenian Genocide and what happened, You can Google, or search on Facebook, Twitter or wherever in social media.

The 2013 Armenian Toronto ACC Summerfest Was A Great Success

This year from July 12, until the 14th, 2013 The Armenian Community Center of Toronto held a huge party under the tent for the Armenian community and this year was the 17th season. This year like from the year our Summerfest have begun, they have become a great success from bringing many known Armenian and International Performers from Dancers, to Singers, Comedians, Radio Broadcasters and so many more surprises that occur each year. The Armenian Summerfest is held at the Armenian Community Youth Center Parking lot.

This year many Armenian singers from Los Angeles, Lebanon, Cambridge Ontario, Montreal, and other places attended and sang at our Summerfest and they are Ararad Aharonian, Khoren Mouradian, Onnig Dinkjian our folk Traditional Singer, Kevork Artinian, Armenchik, and Andy Madadian with their bands that graced our stage with their incredible and beautiful talent in our Armenian Culture singing a variety of songs from slow to fast and while the crowd was dancing traditional Armenian Dances as well as just dancing with family, friends and enjoying our time with our Armenian community. Some of the performers also did a duet on stage as well which blew the crowd away and people were dancing like no tomorrow. We were then Broadcasted live from our Radio Station present and that is Setrak Garabedian who traveled from Montreal, and his radio station is called TrikTrak With Setrak and he updated and tuned those people who were unable to join at the Summerfest across the world so they too can enjoy with us.

The purpose of the Armenian Summerfest is to bring the Armenian community together, to strengthen our bonds, to make new friends, to reuniting people who have not seen each other in a while, and nowadays people meet each other on Facebook and make friends on the social networking site and people connect in person together for the first time or many times before and it makes Summerfest to be a smaller world when people reunite together. People of All ages were in attendance at the Summerfest which made us into one big happy family of our Community. a few thousand people were in attendance this year.

There were many vendors and traditional cultural Armenian and Middle Eastern Food and Desserts for people to enjoy while at the summerfest, there was also a Kids area where there was deflatable playing centers, Along with Cotton Candy, Ice Cream, and So many things to do for people of all ages.

I am glad that I attended all 3 nights and I got to reunite with my Friend whom I call a sister from Montreal, I got to see my friend from Boston who I had not seen since last year, and I saw all my facebook friends and some I met for the first time. It was so incredible and It was special time. I had such a great time and My face was always smiling and I was just so happy all around.

I would like to personally thank the Organizing committee of the Annual Summerfest and I appreciate all the hard work, commitment, dedication, nights and days that are put to pull of a huge event with renting of the big tent, organizing and planning the performers, the food, the communications, advertising committees and so many more things that go into planning an event. Thanks again and I am excited for the 18th year in 2014. Thanks for a fun weekend. Until next time.

The Armenian Genocide Demonstration In Ottawa, Ontario Canada – Parliament Hill April 24, 2012

For Several years now, People from All over the place such as Montreal, Toronto, Laval, Cambridge, Ontario, From other provinces and countries take a trip every year on April 24th to participate and take part in the demonstration of The Armenian Genocide Commemoration and to raise awareness about other Genocides on how history should not be repeated. This year marks the 97th anniversary since the Armenian Genocide happened in 1915. In April we hold many commemorations, remembrance, vigils, and programs to honor the Armenian Genocide Victims of which 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred by The Ottoman Empire of Turkey and of which they stole our lands, churches, cities, and as well as MOUNT ARARAT which belongs to Armenia and they stole it from us and they tried to wipe out a whole nation and its people but could not succeed. The Armenian Genocide is a constant struggle for us and now in less than 20 days we will be embarking on a journey to Ottawa, Ontario Canada on April 24th, 2012, to commemorate once again.

In Ottawa, we get together at the Parliament Hill in between the West and East Blocks right in front of the Parliament building. This year we will be meeting at 12 noon and the procession will begin with speeches from dignitaries, politicians, Armenians, Fellow guests, Parish priests, and more. Then after the speeches and thanking Canada for Recognizing the Armenian Genocide, we gather up with our Genocide Prevention signs, Armenian, Canadian, Quebec, Province Flags, Banners and everything then we start to march down to the Turkish Embassy not so far away and we protest and raise our voices to the passerby’s on the street and we say, No More Genocide, Eastern Turkey is Western Armenia, Denial Is A Crime, Admit Your Crimes Turkey, all the way until we reach the Turkish Embassy. Now there is a Park right in front of the Turkish Embassy and thousands of Armenians and Armenian supporters are there to protest and to talk to the Ambassador of Turkey to recognize their crimes, and to admit what they have done to us. It will be my 17 year in a row attending and I have never missed a commemoration of all those years. I started going when I was 10 years old and it never stops there. Its very important to me that I am there with my fellow Armenians and to raise my voice and voice my opinions on Genocide.

If You are in the Ottawa, Canada area or close to it, in the vicinity, please come out and join our demonstration and protest. If you would like to meet with me, I will be there. I will not be that hard to find. I’ll post a couple of recent pictures of myself.

Thank you.
