ANCA-WR Condemns Hateful Acts on Armenian Schools
GLENDALE – Last night, hateful acts of vandalism and trespassing were directed against Holy Martyrs Ferrahian School and AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School in the San Fernando Valley as school officials reported finding Turkish flags hanging on campus as they arrived at school in the morning.
The Armenian National Committee of America – Western Region strongly condemns these hate crimes and will not stand for any acts that promote intolerance.
Police have been called at both campuses and are investigating.
This type of behavior can be credited due to the lack of accountability of the Armenian Genocide and its ongoing denial by Turkey. It also serves as a reminder of why fighting for justice for the Armenian Genocide remains at the forefront of our priorities.
There will be a press conference at Ferrahian School (5300 White Oak. Ave., Encino, CA 91316) at 5 pm. Please stay tuned for additional information.
