Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide on the Greenway

The annual commemoration of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 was held Sunday on the Greenway at the Armenian Heritage Park.

Members of the Massachusetts Armenian Genocide Commemoration Committee were joined by marchers who had protested earlier in the day at the Turkish Consulate in Boston.

The annual commemoration featured speeches, music and plenty of Armenian tricolors.

The 101st commemoration was held shortly after a North End billboard was purchased by a group denying the Armenian Genocide and subsequently removed after one day.

On Sunday night, flowers were still seen at the base of the Abstract Sculpture and reflecting pool at Armenian Heritage Park.
