PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian government is teaming up with Stevie Wonder and a roster of international performers to bring a higher profile to Genocide recognition efforts.
Armenian dignitaries and music promoters in Glendale unveiled plans for a five-year series of concerts, dubbed “Never Again,” to keep the Armenian Genocide and other human rights atrocities in the public eye.
The series is scheduled to culminate with performances in 2015, the 100-year anniversary of the start of the Armenian Genocide, in which 1.5 million Armenians died at the hands of Ottoman Turks. Supporters say the effort is a companion to long-standing political and legal efforts by Armenian-Americans to have the United States formally recognize the Armenian Genocide.
