Twelve Armenian NGOs moved from Sport & Concert Complex to
Tsitsernakaberd, Memorial of Armenian Genocide victims, where a
monument commemorating victims of Sumgait slaughter in 1988 is erected.

The participants of the procession put flowers near the monument. The
initiative of the precession belongs to "Alert" NGO which was joined
by people who survived those massacres.

The participants of the procession complained that day commemorating
victims of Sumgait is defined by the state. Hrayr Ulubabyan, one
of the participants, said the National Assembly hasn't yet assessed
those events appropriately.

"Massacres carried out in Sumgait and Baku should be defined as
Genocide," he said.
