Around 20,000 march in protest in support of Armenia and its conflict with Turkey and Azerbaijan.

Los Angeles: Thousands gathered for a march on Sunday, October 11, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. in support of Armenia in its conflict with Turkey and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, also known as Artsakh, which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but home to ethnic Armenians. The crowd assembled at Pan Pacific Park located on Beverly Boulevard near Fairfax, and ended at the Turkish Consulate on Wilshire near La Cienega Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

"Artsakh Under Attack:March for Victory" was a peaceful march and demonstration that ended around 7:10 p.m., according to a Beverly Hills PD tweet. The nation's largest population of Armenian immigrants reside in Los Angeles County. Demonstrations have taken place during the past week over Azerbaijan's aggression against Armenia and Artsakh.

There has been ongoing conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia for years, with recent events escalating tensions. This conflict is different this time, because Turkey has offered more direct support to Azerbaijan.

The Armenian community has reportedly raised millions of dollars for humanitarian aid to send to Armenia and Artsakh.
