Demonstrators Block 101 Freeway to Bring Attention to Fighting Between Azerbaijan and Armenia

One person held up a sign that said, "This is not a war it is genocide," and another called out the media with a sign that read, "Armenia needs your international coverage."

Another night of protests took place in Hollywood Saturday with crowds halting traffic on the 101 Freeway and blocking intersections, all to raise awareness of what the local Armenian community calls attacks against their home country.

Hundreds began marching around 4 p.m., waving flags and preventing drivers from getting through. From above, video shot by NewsChopper 4 Bravo, showed several intersections blocked by crowds along Sunset Avenue.

Protesters said this was the only way to bring attention to the fierce fighting between Armenia and neighboring Azerbaijan over a breakaway region which is controlled by ethnic Armenians but is inside Azerbaijani territory.

1. Now that's a tough challenge. Important as the issue is, breaking through the current chaos in news

is one tough slog.
