Today, Armenian-American pop star Cher (Cherilyn Sarkisian) called on the United States to action over Azerbaijan’s unprovoked aggression against the Republic of Artsakh & Armenia.
“The pandemic, election and other important issues in the world are distracting people from the ethnic cleansing campaign removing Armenian civilians from their ancestral home in Artsakh. Azerbaijan has attacked Armenia with the assistance of Turkey; given the history of Armenians and Turkey and the genocide, the records of human rights violations, it is time to cut and impose sanctions on these countries,” the Armenian American superstar says in a video message.
“With all the needs within our own country, why do we send American taxpayer dollars and sell weapons to these authoritarian regimes? Outrage isn’t enough, raising awareness isn’t enough. Contact your representatives now and demand action. Tell them that it must stop now,” she adds.
Cher also urged everyone to use the resources from the Armenian National Committee of America and Armenian Assembly of America in order to contactt their representatives to demand action, as well as requesting humanitarian aid to the Armenia Fund.
