Young activists march to protest attacks on Armenians in Istanbul

PanARMENIAN.Net - Members of Young Diplomats Club NGO and Nikol Aghbalyan Student Union marched to the UN office in Yerevan to pass a letter protecting against the attacks on Armenians in Istanbul.

The activists further urged Armenian public, NGOs, youth organizations to unite in protest against discrimination of Armenians in Turkey.

As one of the activists told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, the rally urges international organizations against showing the same indifference as was demonstrated during the Armenian Genocide.
