Following the ceremony, there will be a reception with coffee and cakes in the church hall. Author Marsha Skrypuch of Brantford, who has been a staunch supporter of the Armenian-Alevi campaign against the misleading Turkish monument, will deliver a short talk on the WWI Internment operations, and then will sign her recent novel "Dance of the Banished".

We believe Armenians should attend the unveiling and thus support the truth about the WWI internments. In doing so we expose and condemn the phony plaque at the Brantford Mount Hope Cemetery which is Turkish government propaganda.

Cars will be provided to people who would like to join us but have transportation problems. Pick up will be at the parking lot of McDonald's at Parkway Mall, Victoria Park and Ellesmere, between 8:15. and 8:30 a.m. on Friday, August 22. Contact dikran@keghart.com for reservation.

    This is wonderful, and a great antidote to Turkish lies and propaganda.
