Armenian Genocide 98th Anniversary Commemoration in Times Square

The 98th Anniversary Commemoration of the Armenian genocide took place in Times Square April 21, 2013. The theme of this year's rally was "Turkey is Guilty of Genocide: Denying the Undeniable is Criminal."

Attendees demanded that the United States and Turkish governments formally recognize the genocide and urged younger generations to never forget the atrocity. Turkey has rejected the term "genocide" and regards the killings as a consequence of war.
