Armenians around the world are remembering the genocide against them on its 100th anniversary. This was the first genocide of the 20th century.
They put up signs, memorials, even one on Yerba Buena Island. A sign like this hasn’t been seen in this area until now.
“And it will be on Muni trains and BARTs and on the 101 and off the Bay Bridge. You’ll be seeing in the next week,” Armenian-American Kim Bardakian said.
Bardakian is one of 30,000 local members of the Armenian community, many of whom pitched in to pay the Treasure Island Development Authority $10,500 for the prime ad space, one that is supposed to be non-political.
But is it?
