Los Angeles--Today, the Echo Park Community Coalition (EPCC) stands with Armenians across LA and the United States to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. We must speak out and acknowledge the 1.5 million who lost their lives in the genocide in 1915. It is very revolting that until today the Turkish authorities and their allies in the United States refused to recognize and still denies the genocide also known as the “Great Calamity” which became the model of a later Holocaust by Nazi Germany in World War II.

REMEMBER THE “GREAT CALAMITY” IN ARMENIA , 1915

Los Angeles--Today, the Echo Park Community Coalition (EPCC) stands with Armenians across LA and the United States to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. We must speak out and acknowledge the 1.5 million who lost their lives in the genocide in 1915.

It is very revolting that until today the Turkish authorities and their allies in the United States refused to recognize and still denies the genocide also known as the “Great Calamity” which became the model of a later Holocaust by Nazi Germany in World War II.

Filipinos in Solidarity with Armenian Americans

The Filipinos also like the Armenians were victims of this imposed amnesia by the reactionaries. Until now the United States have not recognized that they terrorized the Philippines and committed genocide during the so called “ Philippine Insurrection” from 1899-1902 when it was a Filipino-American War for independence from 1899-1916.

Until now the United States have not recognized the 250,000 Filipino American veterans who fought under the American flag and resisted the Japanese when they occupied the Philippines from 1941-1945.

Until now Filipino veterans are considered “ second class citizens” While their counterparts receives benefits they are denied such pensions and their survivors langush in poerty here in the United States.

Even if more than one million Filipinos died during World War II, they entirely blamed Japan for the atrocities committed during the war where in fact more Filipinos died during the liberation when the US re-occupied the Philippines in 1945.

Let us not forget and fight this war against forgetting and resist by remembering. Let the sacrifices of the Armenian and Filipinos be the oil that light the lamp of freedom all over the United States and the world.

Makibaka, Huwag Matakot!
