Assyrians in Boston to Protest Baghdad Church Massacre
Posted 2010-11-18 16:10 GMT
Boston (AINA) -- Assyrians will hold a demonstration at Boston City Hall on Saturday, November 20, from 1 to 3 PM, to protest the Baghdad church massacre that occurred on October 31 (AINA 11-2-2010), and to call attention to the continuing genocide against the Assyrians of Iraq, which began on June 26, 2004, when the first church was bombed. 66 churches have been attacked since then (report) and almost every Assyrian is able to name someone who has been kidnapped or killed (report). More than half of the 1,500,000 Assyrian (also known as Chaldean and Syriac) Christians living in Iraq before 2003 have fled abroad.
