On Saturday 20 April the commemoration of the 109th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the Armenian Genocide Memorial “The Eternal Flame” in Ealing Green took place, organised by the Armenian National Committee of UK (ANC-UK) and the Armenian Community Council of UK.

The event was attended by Councillor Peter Mason – Leader of Ealing Council, Mayor Hitesh Tailor, and all of the Ealing MPs: Rupa Huq (MP for Ealing Central and Acton), James Murray (MP for Ealing North & Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury), Ruth Cadbury (MP for Brentford and Isleworth) and Virendra Sharma (MP for Southall); and Councillor Bassam Mahfouz.

Raffi Kilian made the opening remarks, while Armen Bodossian delivered the speech from ANC-UK after the speeches by Mr Tarverdian from ACC, Ambassador Nersesyan and His Grace Bishop Hovakim.

The winner of the Competition “Your Story of Genocide” Orson Gulvanessian from Armenian Language Saturday School was announced and he read the story of his family during the 109th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
