Major campaign on Khojaly genocide runs in Washington, New York

Khojaly NYAzerbaijani-American Alliance (AAA), as a non-partisan and non-profit organization, has launched a large-scale information campaign about the tragedy in Khojaly.

At the initiative of Anar Mammadov, the alliance founder, hundreds of ads under the headline “Khojaly; A Human Tragedy Against Azerbaijan” will be placed in Washington and New York.

A large monitor set up in the famous New York Times Square will display graphics and images reflecting the statistics of the Khojaly Genocide over the next several days.

Times Square is one of the busiest intersections in the world and a neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It’s called the “Crossroads of the World”.

Some other monitors displaying facts about Khojaly genocide have also been installed between 46th and 47th streets of “Broadway Street”.

This campaign is aimed to cover a large audience in Times Square. Estimations show that it will be viewed by 1.5 million per day, approximately 11 million people per week.

Another part of the campaign is to raise public awareness about the Khojaly genocide in the central streets of New York by projecting films on the event on several buildings located in central streets.

A poster with an image of Khojaly tragedy will be moved by transportation vehicles around many heavily trafficked and iconic locations. These vehicles will project the poster at nights and evenings on the sides of crowded buildings to attract the public attention to the history of Azerbaijan.

As another part of alliance’s familiarizing campaign, some cube mount screens on transportation vehicles will be moved in the central streets of New York to raise awareness about the Khojaly tragedy.

In addition to the above-mentioned actions, several 180 degrees rolling video posters will be installed to demonstrate video spots on the monitors to allow people standing see the broadcasts.

Traditionally, the New York City subway stations are covered with realities about Khojaly. New York ranks first in the world in terms of the number of subway stations. Every day 6 million passengers use the New York stations.

The posters will be put on the walls in the most visible and accessible points of metro stations starting from March 1. Khojaly tragedy took place 22 years ago.

The campaign which began in New York will be continued in Washington State.
