PanARMENIAN.Net - Athens Armenian youth staged a protest action against the Azeri destruction of Armenian cemetery in Old Jugha (Nakhijevan).
On June 6, the young people distributed awareness leaflets ahead of a classical music concert, organized by the Azerbaijani embassy in Greece, to be attended by diplomats, entrepreneurs and public figures.
The action was organized by the youth wing of ARF Dashnaktsutyun, with over 1000 leaflets distributed. Concert organizers called police, and though the young people explained the action to be a peaceful one, several were detained.
According to ARFD representatives, the action served its purpose in showing the true face of Azerbaijan, with Baku trying to present itself as a cultural country while destructing historical monuments.
