On Saturday, April 23, 2016—the eve of the 101st anniversary of the Armenian Genocide—, the joint Dutch Armenian organizations held a protest march and a subsequent rally in Amsterdam, according to the Diary of the Netherlands.
On this occasion, about a thousand activists had arrived in the Dutch capital city.
The protest started with the observance of a minute of silence in memory of the innocent victims of this tragedy.
The protesters held Armenian and Dutch national flags, signs condemning Turkey’s crime as well as documentary photos of the genocide, and handed out pamphlets about the history of this tragedy.
Speeches, which condemned genocide as a phenomenon, also were delivered.
The Dutch media widely covered this event.
On Sunday, members of the Dutch Armenian organizations will lay wreaths at the monuments to the victims of Armenian Genocide.
