The 105th anniversary of the Genocide and Great Dispossession of the Armenian people is taking place in unprecedented circumstances when not only Armenia and her Diaspora but all the countries of the world are battling the coronavirus in epidemic conditions.
For the first time, we will not be able physically to carry out the sacred covenant of bowing down, carnation in hand, in respectful memory of the 1.5 million innocent victims of the 1915 Genocide in front of the eternal flame that rises at Tsitsernakaberd.
The Heritage Party notes with heavy heart the health-related ban on the people's march, but is certain that this year the 105th anniversary of the Genocide and Great National Dispossession will be commemorated in Armenia, Artsakh, and Diaspora with even deeper spiritual strength and commitment to defend and promote the rights of the Genocide survivors and their heirs, individually and collectively, in all relevant forums and tribunals, domestic and international.
The pandemic cannot hinder our nationwide commemoration or the measures of our state and people's diplomacy on our long and difficult path to official recognition, restitution, and restoration of our Homeland rights forcibly taken.
Heritage joins Armenians across the world, and all humanity, in mourning the Holy Martyrs of the Genocide, in remembering and demanding.
