Protest to Stop Turkey's Role in Attacking Kessab
Friday, March 28, 2014 2-4PM

The AYF, along with various religious and political groups, has organized a protest in front of the Turkish Consulate in order to put a stop to Turkey's role in the attacks against Armenian civilians. Buses will be provided from St. Mary's Church in Glendale (500 S. Central Ave.) promptly at 1pm. For more details and questions, please call (818) 507-1933.

The last few days have been a tumultuous, heavy burden for the Armenian Community due to the atrocities that have occurred in Kessab, Syria. The armed incursion in Kessab began on Friday, March 21, with rebels associated with Al-Qaeda's al-Nusra Front, Sham al-Islam and Ansar al-Sham crossing the Turkish border and attacking the Armenian civilian population of Kessab.
