Protest/Vigil at JFK Federal bldg in Boston to demand US action on Artsakh
October 12 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
A coalition of Boston-area youth, activist, and advocacy groups has organized a series of protests/vigils in front of the JFK Federal Building in Boston to demand forceful action by the U.S. Government to stop the ethnic cleansing of Artsakh Armenians and to sanction the perpetrator Azeri regime.
The JFK Federal Building is the most prominent U.S. Federal landmark in New England. It houses the offices of Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren and is the regional headquarters of a number of US Federal Agencies.
This series of silent protests will be held every Thursday in October, during office hours, from 2 to 6 pm, to grab the attention of US senatorial and federal agency staff who work in this building.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive when they can and to depart when they must, within the four-hour time window.
The first Protest is on Thursday, Oct 5, 2-6 pm. This FB Event Page has details on all upcoming protest dates
The organizers have compiled a list of statements, trusted news articles, videos, and other resources about Artsakh into the following website: https://artsakhsos.carrd.co . We will disseminate this resource via QR code to passers-by.
This series of protests is organized and co-sponsored by the following Boston-area organizations: Zoravik Activist Collective, Armenian General Benevolent Union Young Professionals – Boston, Armenian Assembly of America – Massachusetts, Armenian National Committee of Massachusetts, Armenian Youth Federation – Boston Njdeh Chapter.
