Hundreds of ARF members, ARF Youth and students gathered to remember Unger Simon Zavarian in his birthplace of Aygehad village in Lori. Father Baghlian pointed out that the large number of young Armenians in attendance proves that the national spirit, which Zavarian embodied, will be an indivisible part of our lives to continue to realize the aspirations of the great leader. At the conclusion of the memorial, several individuals joined the ranks of the ARF and the ARF Youth organization.

Today one of our historic Armenian capitals is occupied by 78000 Turks. The Armenian Church of Holy Apostles, 10th c, now serves as a mosque. #Armenian #AYF #Ungers Boo!

բարի տարեդարձ Մոնթէ Մելքոնեան! Happy Birthday Monte Melkonian! (November 25, 1957 – June 12, 1993) American-born Armenian commander during the Nagorno-Karabakh War, Melkonian had no prior service before being placed in command of an estimated 4,000 men. Described as an all-American child who joined the Boy Scouts and was a pitcher in Little League baseball, his parents rarely talked about their Armenian heritage with their children but his interest in his background sparked at the age of 11, when his family went on a year-long trip to Europe, including Turkey to visit the town of Merzifon, where Melkonian's maternal grandparents were from. Merzifon's population at the time was 23,475 but was almost completely devoid of its once 17,000-strong Armenian population was wiped out during the Armenian Genocide in 1915. They found one Armenian family of the three that was living in the town, however, Melkonian soon learned that the only reason this was so, was because the head of the family in 1915 had exchanged the safety of his family in return for identifying the Armenians in the town to Turkish authorities during the genocide. Monte would later confide to his wife that "he was never the same after that visit...He saw the place that had been lost." Monte was buried with full military honors on June 19, 1993 at Yerablur military cemetery in Yerevan, Armenia. #Armenia #Artsakh #ungers Արիւնոտ դրօշ վեհ Դաշնակցութեան, Ծածանեց ընդդէմ բռնակալութեան: Սիրենք միութիւն,չանենք վատութիւն, Մի՛շտ բարձր պահենք Հ.Յ.Դ անուն։ Arunod trosh veh Tashnagtsoutian Dzadzani untem prnagaloutian.

The First Republic of Armenia [Հայաստանի Հանրապետութիւն], under the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, was conquered by the Soviet Red Army on December 2, 1920 while Unger Simon Vratsian (student of Law, Editor of Harach, Horizon, Hairenik, and Droshak, jailed by the Ottomans as a Russian spy, and Bureau member) served as Prime Minister. The Declaration of the First Republic of Armenia stated that the Republic was to be a self-governing state, endowed with a constitution, the supremacy of state authority, independence, sovereignty, and plenipotentiary power. The country's first state university was founded under the First Republic. The Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic [Հայկական Սովետական Սոցիալիստական Հանրապետութիւն] was one of the fifteen republics that made up the Soviet Union when the largely agricultural economy transformed to an industrial production center ending September 21, 1991. #Armenia #ARF #Independence photo: The Soviet 11th Ref Army enters Yerevan in 1920, effectively ending Armenian self-rule The demonstration attended by around 1,000 marks the biggest expression of public protest yet against President Sarkisian’s controversial decision to make Armenia part of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Participants regard the integration as a prelude to the restoration of the Soviet Union allegedly sought by Putin. At the press conference following this meeting, Putin vowed that Russia would do everything in its power to ensure Armenia’s membership in the Customs Union, saying that all steps had been taken toward that goal. Putin is confident that Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian integration project “would seriously strengthen its economic potential, improve the investment climate and promote direct business contacts, including those between regions.” In his remarks, Putin also discussed the ongoing Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the role Russia plays in the security of the region. He addressed Azerbaijan’s military threats against Armenia head on saying in the event of resumption of war, “Conditions for a peaceful resolution will be reduced, and other means of resolving the conflict will be reinforced.” emphasizing that it would be counterproductive to speak about what Russia will do if war resumes. The crowd chanted “Free, independent Armenia.” [Azatutyun, Asbarez] #Armenia #CurrentEvents #Assimilation A page from the Providence, Rhode Island 'Varantian' junior chapter records.

We pause to remember the 25th anniversary and 25,000 deceased of the 6.8 magnitude earthquake in Spitak. Measuring 50 miles in diameter, the quake displaced thousands of families, and without prompt aid from the Soviet Union, further deepened Armenia's isolation. Years later, many still live in metal shelters on the outskirts of the city of Gyumri. #Armenia #Spitak #Earthquake #25years #survivors #Gyumri Join the discussion happening right now via twitter using hashtag #Spitak to discuss earthquakes globally! #25years #Armenia #Earthquake Փրովիտենս «Քրիստափոր» Կոմիտէի տարեկան խրախճանք: 170 celebrated with the Providence Krisdapor ARF yesterday in an evening of traditional Armenian entertainment and culture #Armenian #ARF #ungers #AYF #armstagram A little bit of power fruit to help our ungers through finals! նուռ: the symbol of #Armenia #Armenian #Ungers

Khachkars are characteristic of Medieval Christian Armenian art. Since 2010, khachkars, their symbolism and craftsmanship are inscribed in the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

'The revolution started in 1890, was passed on in 1933, and has not stopped since. We live on and move forward.' Another winner from last week's #AYFDirect sent in by Boston's Unger Garin Parseghian. Ungers from coast to coast, photo from Convention 2011. #AYFYOARF #ARF #AYF #ungers Hrayr Torkom Maroukhian (Dec 19, 1928-Dec 21, 1998) served on Bureau for 35 years. Born in Kermanshah, Iran he graduated from the Mechanical Engineering faculty at Iran’s State University and later established his own engineering firm. In 1963, as the representative of Northern Iran’s ARF-D Central Committee, Hrayr Maroukhian took part in the ARF-D’s 18th World Congress, a very significant one in ARF-D history because it called for generation change. The generation of Tro, Navasartian and Vratsian were replaced by younger members born and raised in the Diaspora. As one of the most prominent faces of that generation, Hrayr Maroukhian was elected to the Bureau of the ARF-D and re-elected in 1967 and in 1972. At the 20th World Congress of the ARF-D in 1988, which re-evaluated the party’s policies of the past quarter century and set a new agenda, Maroukhian was elected chairman. He would continually be re-elected to that position until his death in 1998. Maroukhian and ARF-D banned from Armenia in 1992, a day before the World Congress was to take place, was a shock of its violation of human rights and authoritarian practices of the Soviet Era. Maroukhian held an active presence on Armenia’s political stage, in the struggle for freedom in Artsakh and in Armenia’s national renaissance, centering upon the motto "Tebi Yergir." It had been Maroukhian’s dream to live in Armenia and to devote his life to the mission of further strengthening the newly independent Armenian state. But fate dictated that he would return to the homeland only in death. Hrayr Maroukhian’s dedication and committment to the Armenian people, to the empowerment of the newly independent Republic of Armenia and for the right to self-determination of the people of Artsakh, will always be revered and remembered, not only by the ARF-D but by the Armenian nation. #Armenian #AYF #AYFYOARF #ARF #Ungers #Armenia This week's theme is AYF ROAD TRIPS!
