A march has been planned in Los Angeles (California) on Sunday, October 11, by members of the Armenian diaspora amid the ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the possession of the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Members of organizations such as the Armenian Assembly of America and the Armenian Youth Federation will participate in the demonstration. Participants plan to gather from 15:00 (local time) and march from the Pan Pacific Park, along Beverly Boulevard, to the Consulate General of Turkey located along Wilshire Boulevard.
A series of similar demonstrations have been held in various locations across Los Angeles over the last week and additional demonstrations are likely in the near term. Associated transport and business disruptions are possible, and a heightened security presence should be anticipated along the march route and outside the Turkish Consulate.
Those in Los Angeles are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and heed instructions issued by local authorities.
