Why the USA Must Stop the Genocide Against Armenians in Artsakh
— Jake Bournazian
WASHINGTON D.C., DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 17, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — A new video is released on Azerbaijan’s invasion of Artsakh that highlights the parallels between America’s road to independence and the Republic of Artsakh’s struggle for independence. On December 12, 2022, the Republic of Azerbaijan sealed off all roads and blockaded all transportation into and out of the Republic of Artsakh (known as Nagorno-Karabagh during the Soviet era). The entire region is populated by indigenous ethnic Armenians, and they are cutoff from food, medicine, water, and other hygienic necessities. Just like the colonial militias’ stand against the British in 1776, the Republic of Artsakh stands alone in its fight for independence.
“This short video raises awareness on the common struggle for freedom and independence between America and Artsakh by looking at the parallels in history from 250 years ago” said Jake Bournazian, spokesperson for the Knights and Daughters of Vartan, the organization responsible for producing the video. “America and the news media should know and understand the difference between a conflict and an invasion and help avoid the first genocide of the 21st century.”
