Pontic Greek Genocide Remembrance

AP / EUROKINISI Armenian demonstrators burn a Turkish flag outside the Turkish Embassy in Athens in 1996 after a march to commemorate the 81st anniversary of the 1915-1923 Armenian genocide by the Ottoman Turks.

The solemn day of May 19th, the Remembrance Day for the Genocide of Greeks in Pontos by criminal Turkey, is fast approaching, unfortunately our diaspora has yet to reach anywhere near the militancy of the Armenian diaspora, which stages protests outside Turkish Embassies and consulates everywhere in the world where a substantial Armenian population exists on their Remembrance Day , every April 24th! Magnificently, in this year's protests the Moscow Turkish embassy was even hit with burning Molotov cocktails! And in Thessaloniki the criminal Turkish flag was burned and riot police were called in to keep the protestors from storming the Turkish consulate! Lets please try to at least attend one event regarding Remembrance of Pontic Greek Genocide, every single present Greek body there does count for the sake of remembrance, its better than doing absolutely nothing, below are some scheduled events in North America, courtesy of PontosWorld.com:

We must remember the pontic genocide. Neither the government ( a sell out bazaar outfit) not the church are paying due consideration to many aspects of our past history.
