Default Armenia to Hold Parallel Gathering to Remember Hrant Dink

On Tuesday, January 23, at 1 pm Yerevan time, a public rally will be held in Freedom Square to bid good-bye to Turkish-born Armenian Newspaper Editor Hrant Dink. The rally, scheduled to coincide with the funeral procession to take place in Istanbul, will offer those in Armenia an opportunity to publicly pay homage to their compatriot who was slain on Friday, January 19.


The organizers are calling on all those in the capital to join them to announce to the world that Armenians share Dink's dream of dialogue and peace among peoples.


The site of the mass rally – Freedom Square – is appropriate, given Dink's commitment to that basic human right.

Странно у нас на митингах в основном старики кому делать нечего...
Еще не пойму почему такая шумиха поднялась...в Турции 200 000 армян почти, т.е. до этого из наших никого не убивали??? Или редактор армянской газеты в Стамбуле слишком важная персона?

Нет, но зачем упускать так удачно подвернувшееся убийство которое можно с большой выгодой использовать против Турции

хотел бы я знать что нам существенное дает бойкотирование всего турецкого ... признание геноцида? они его и так признают, не могут же все время идти против течения, когда все вокруг его признают, а что дальше..? возврат каких либо земель..? этому никогда не быть без войны. в войны не быьт так как никто имхо не пойдет воевать ради "наших" земель 100 летней давности, раньше надо было думать.

Default ATP contributes as well...

Armenia Tree Project Plans Forest in Memory of Hrant Dink (1954-2007)

Soon after the tragic death of Armenian editor and journalist Hrant Dink, a group of donors contacted Armenia Tree Project (ATP) expressing interest in planting a special forest in his memory.

Last week, Armenians from Istanbul to Glendale were shocked and grief-stricken to learn of the tragic murder of Hrant Dink, the editor of the bilingual, Istanbul-based Agos newspaper. Hrant Dink, who was convicted under Turkey’s Article 301 for “insulting Turkishness” because of his frank discussion of the Armenian Genocide, had been receiving death threats from right-wing nationalists in Turkey for months. On January 19, a young man made good on the threats, stalked Hrant Dink, and shot him several times in the back of the head.

The killing has led to international outrage and expressions of sympathy. On January 23, over 100,000 people in Turkey joined Hrant Dink’s funeral procession. As they marched through the streets of Istanbul carrying signs that said “We are all Hrant,” they chanted “We are all Hrant, we are all Armenian.” For more information about Hrant Dink, visit the web site www.hrantdink.org.

Hrant Dink named the newspaper he founded Agos, which in Armenian means furrow. “A furrow is for planting and with the encouragement of donors who have already come forward with initial funding, we will plant a forest as a tribute to Hrant Dink,” said ATP Executive Committee member Nancy Kricorian.

Armenia Tree Project (ATP), a grassroots-supported non-profit organization based in Watertown and Yerevan, conducts vitally important environmental projects in Armenia’s impoverished and deforested zones and seeks support in advancing its reforestation mission.

Since 1994, ATP has made enormous strides in combating desertification in the biologically diverse but threatened Caucasus region. Nearly 1.5 million trees have been planted and restored, and hundreds of jobs have been created for Armenians in seasonal tree-regeneration programs. For more information or to support the forest in memory of Hrant Dink, visit www.ArmeniaTree.org.
