Azeri-Americans rally in Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, CA - On February 23, 2012, the Azerbaijani-American community in California, led by Azerbaijani-American Council (AAC) and Northern Azerbaijan Cultural Society of America (NACSA), held a public rally at the California State Capitol, to protest against the Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 96 under consideration in the State Assembly. Introduced by Assemblymen Felipe Fuentes (D-CA), Katcho Achadjian (R-CA), and Mike Gatto (D-CA), ACR 96 seeks to designate February 27, 2012, as a so-called "California Day of Remembrance for the Massacres of Armenians in Sumgait, Kirovabad, and Baku”.
