Route for “March for Justice” on Friday.

Traffic on West Hollywood’s Eastside will be interrupted briefly on Friday during the March for Justice staged by the Los Angeles-based Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee.

According to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, the march will begin at the corner of Western Avenue and Sunset Boulevard at 10 a.m. Participants will march west on Sunset to La Brea Avenue. They will then march south on La Brea to Wilshire Boulevard, and then turn west to 6300 Wilshire Blvd.

As the group enters West Hollywood city limits, rolling traffic breaks will protect the marchers on La Brea as they pass Fountain Avenue, Lexington Avenue, Santa Monica Boulevard and Romaine Street. The exact time of the rolling traffic breaks is not known.

The march is to commemorate the centennial of the Armenian genocide, a period in the early 1900s in which 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks.

Apparently Shink is focusing her efforts on opposing others instead of remembering 100 years ago the Genocide in Armenia. WWCS? Cher Sarkisian.
