September 2, 2023, was Artsakh's 32nd Independence Day — under a total blockade, with a starving population and in danger of existence. It is precisely in these difficult circumstances that Artsakh needs our solidarity and our voice. On September 2, 2023, a protest rally took place in Berlin, which was part of the Pan-Armenian protest series in Armenia, Artsakh and the entire diaspora. On behalf of the diocese, the parish priest responsible for Berlin, Yeghishe Vartabed Avetisyan, was present at the rally.
