Letter to Editor: Recognizing the loss of 1.5 million Armenian Martyrs

April 25th, 2016

April 24th is the 101st commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. Our history is well documented; save for some who think that revising history somehow changes it. We should never forget April 24, 1915, through 1923, when Armenian intellectuals and community leaders were rounded up and murdered, or forced into death marches. This massacre left over 1.5 million Armenian dead from the actions of Young Turk Government members.

April 11th, 2016

Last year at a Nike factory in Oregon President Obama said, “No trade agreement is going to force us to change our laws.” This year, in response to a World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling, Country of Origin Labeling (C.O.O.L.) on imported beef and pork was repealed.
