SYDNEY #MARCHFORJUSTICE THIS SUNDAY: The Voice Armenia Winner, Masha Mnjoyan to Perform

By | Friday, 26 April 2019

SYDNEY: The organisers of this Sunday's (28th April 2019) Sydney #MARCHFORJUSTICE have announced that the winner of the inaugural The Voice Armenia, pop star Masha Mnjoyan will be headlining the Special Program at the conclusion of the annual event calling for recognition and justice of the Armenian Genocide.

The Gyumri-born, Yerevan-based Masha is currently in Sydney, and she will perform at First Fleet Park in Circular Quay after joining thousands of Armenian-Australians in the March for Justice, which begins at 2pm at Hyde Park, continues along Macquarie Street passing the iconic St Mary's Cathedral, Martin Place and NSW Parliament House, before turning into streets towards Circular Quay.

The March for Justice will be led by the Homenetmen Scouts Marching Band, NSW Parliamentarians, community leaders and clergy, as well as members from Armenian-Australian youth, relief, sporting, scouting, cultural and political organisations, and students of Armenian schools and university associations.

The Special Program will feature cultural pieces from dance and youth groups and speeches from youth representatives and community leaders, who will particularly focus the protest's attention at the community's outrage after Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison backflipped on his position of accurately referring to the Armenian Genocide.

Masha, a conservatorium-trained and multi-award winning singer, will perform songs to honour the 1.5 million Armenians who lost their lives during the Armenian Genocide.

Buses have been organised from six locations - in Ryde, Willoughby, Chatswood, Smithfield, Wentworthville and Lidcombe:
