BREAKING: Armenian Youth Federation Begins Hunger Strike In Los Angeles To Bring Attention To Artsakh War.

Today, the Armenian Youth Federation Western Region began a hunger strike in-front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles to call attention to war crimes being committed against Armenians, the AYF-WUS informs Zartonk Media.

As Zartonk Media was informed from the Armenian Youth Federation Western Region, the statement runs as follows,

The Armenian Youth Federation Western Region started a hunger strike in-front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles on Monday night to call attention to war crimes being committed against Armenians. Protesters demand sanctions against Turkey and Azerbaijan for their blatant aggression in the region and escalation of war.

The hunger-strike comes on the heels of a war that has gone on now for over 30 days — with confirmed reports of Turkey fueling the conflict by supplying weaponry and sending jihadist mercenaries to Azerbaijan. Armenians in the diaspora — many of whom were displaced during the genocide committed by Turkey in 1915 — have been protesting around the world to raise awareness and demand a call to action from the international community.

The AYF Western Region decided to hold the hunger strike in front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles because “As American citizens, we are tired of our taxpayer money going to nations like Turkey and Azerbaijan who are committing war crimes against innocent civilians” stated Aram Manoukian, AYF Western Region Chairperson.

“The world needs to open their eyes to the violence being perpetrated upon Armenians in the region, a landlocked Christian nation who is forced to defend itself against dictators like Aliyev from Azerbaijan and Erdogan from Turkey” stated Alik Ourfalian, an AYF member.

The young activists say the hunger strike will culminate up to a march on Sunday from the Federal Building to the Azerbaijani Consulate.
