/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The organizations Armenia Diaspora and Armenica
informed you about the worldwide campaign of "Light the Night". The
content of the campaign is stated below and further information can
be viewed at http://www.armenica.org/light-the-night. "On the eve
of April 24th, we encourage all to "Light the Night" by lighting
a candle through the night of the 23rd and into the morning of the
24th, in remembrance of the 1.5 million souls that fell victim to the
annihilation machine of the Ottoman Empire. Each lit candle placed on
the windowsill will represent a soul lost throughout the years of 1915
and 1923. Together, let's "Light the Night"; let's vow to remember,
to never forget, and to pursue justice and peace for all humanity. The
"Light the Night" campaign started last year in connection to the 90th
remembrance day of the Armenian Genocide and we wish to continue this
campaign hoping that it will be a permanent tradition. Last year the
campaign received wide TV and radio coverage in Armenia and this year
Printinfo has volunteered to contribute to the campaign by printing
flyers free of charge for distribution within Armenia. We hope that
you also could join us in this tradition," the statement says.
