PARIS – The Social Democrat Hunchakian Party’s Nazarbek Youth Movement, took to the streets to protest the European Azerbaijan Society’s (TEAS) event on Feb. 24, commemorating the disputed “Khojaly massacre” at the Adyar Theater located in the 7th district in Paris.

The Youth of Nazarbek expressed their indignation towards the event which propagated lies and distorted history. The youth distributed literature exposing the injustices of Aliyev’s dictatorship, and held up protest signs that read “France and Armenia are not for sale.”

“The purpose of this event promoting a fictitious massacre, was to create an illusion of an Azeri diaspora by the well-funded, oil rich Azeri government,” the Nazarbek Youth Movement declared in a statement. “The Azeris believe that they are establishing a diaspora under the appearance of Soft Power. Yet there was an extremely low turnout at the event proving that it was a farce.”

The youth also expressed solidarity with Leyla Yunus, an Azeri human-rights activist imprisoned by the dictatorial Azeri government in July 2014, along with all victims of the war. “This war, continued by the war-loving Aliyev dictatorship, has taken hostage, the Azeri and Armenian populations of the region, which only benefits the Aliyev dictatorship.” the statement continued.

In response to the TEAS event and Azerbaijan’s attempts to blur the evidence by representing the victims as the aggressors, the Hunchakian Nazarbek Youth Movement will host a conference with Hovannes Guevorkian, Representative of the Republic of Nagorno-Karabagh to France, to commemorate the Sumgait pogrom, which took place on Feb 27 – 29 prior to the war in 1988. The conference will take place on Friday, February 27 at 8:30 p.m. at the Hunchakian Armenian Youth Center in Alfortville, France.
