Armenians stage rally outside BBC headquarters in London

Diaspora Armenians are staging major demonstrations in many countries of the world, to protest against Turkey and Azerbaijan's aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh). One such rally was organized on the BBC headquarters in London on Saturday, October 17.

Armenians living in the various corners of the world are trying to draw the world's attention to war crimes committed against civilian populations, as well as to the international recognition of Artsakh.

Crowds of Armenian demonstrators in many cities continue their rallies in light of the ongoing conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

They often gather in front of buildings hosting major media outlets to demand fair and unbiased coverage of the war.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
