On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide a demonstration will be held in Casinoplatz Square of Bern on April 24. The demonstration bears the slogan “1915-2015: one hundred years of denial – enough!” and will pay tribute to the memory of victims of the Armenian, Assyrian and Pontic Greek genocides, as reported by the magazine Nouvelles d'Arménie.
The demonstrators will insist on the fact that there will be no reconciliation without the recognition of the crime by Turkey. Noting that after 100 years the same threat still exists, they will call on to stop the Genocide of Christians in Syria and Iraq. The demonstration will be followed by a concert in Bern Minster.
