Photoblog: Armenian Genocide Commemoration in Canada

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Armenian Genocide Commemorations in Ottawa brought Armenians, young and old, from multiple cities around the country. The day was cold, we were rained on and the heavens saw it fit to hail on us, but we trudged past all obstacles and stood before the Turkish embassy, demanding the truth to be told and reparations to be made. This is our struggle, this is our cause, and this is what we will fight for until justice is served. The world will finally shed it’s tears…

Slaughter and famine took hold of a race
As barbaric forces sought to destroy a culture’s base
As the powers of this world hushed up this case
The world refused to shed its tears

Mothers and daughters taken unbidden
As children are shot or in harems hidden
Corpses battered, the souls to God given
And yet the world will not shed its tears

Bloated corpses line the Euphrates
The scorching sun the exposed skin grates
As the Devil has determined a whole people’s fates
The world did not shed its tears

Men fought for years and continue still
The youth of this thriving nation won’t rest until
The murderous enemy accepts its sins
The youth of this nation fights and wins

Yet for now, the world has yet to shed its tears

    We are not told much about Armenia, It is firmly in the Russian Geo Political Camp! Due to various blockades Iran is also geo strategically indispensable.
    And a very friendly knowledgeable Armenian informs us.
