The National Congress of Western Armenians (NCWA), the non-ideological, non-partisan Paris-based NGO, since its inception in 2011 has invited Armenians from around the world (including political parties, religious and compatriotic– Hayrenagtsagan organizations) to participate in its pan-Western Armenian initiative to draft demands from Turkey re the losses suffered by the Armenians as a result of the Genocide (1915 to 1923).
In recent months Souren Seraydarian, chairman of NCWA, has toured Diaspora communities to raise awareness of the upcoming and crucial 4th National Congress of Western Armenians in Paris on March 28-29. During his visit to Toronto (Jan. 31), Seraydarian delivered a speech to leading Armenians about NCWA activities in recent years and about the importance of upcoming Paris gathering. The video (in Armenian) is a record of his speech.
The public is encouraged to attend the Paris meeting and to participate in the discussions about the final draft of Armenian claims. Please contact Dikran Abrahamian [email protected] or Jirair Tutunjian [email protected] for further information.
