On April 24, 2024, at the initiative of "Armenian Community of Georgia" non-governmental organization, and with the support of the Armenian Diocese in Georgia, a peaceful protest demonstration took place near the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Tbilisi, which was preceded by an exhibition of photographs with shocking images reflecting the crimes of the Genocide.
