A HRANT DINK TREE DEDICATION is suggested at the triangle of Hollywood Blvd., Prospect St. and Vermont Ave.  In association with the Armenia Tree Project a tree dedication in memory of Hrant Dink may stand for Peace as understatement of harmony between nature and mankind. 
                  A temporary Peace art installation may stand with the tree during the month of April. The Hrant Dink dedication may be on an existing tree or a new one to be planted.
                  We are planning for a ceremony on Wednesday April 22, International Earth Day, with the participation of our elected officials and the Armenian consulate office.
Hrant Dink (Armenian) (September 15, 1954 – January 19, 2007) was a Turkish-Armenian editor, journalist and columnist.
As editor-in-chief of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian newspaper Agos . Dink was a prominent member of the Armenian minority in Turkey. Dink was best known for advocating Turkish-Armenian reconciliation and human and minority rights in Turkey; he was often critical of both Turkey's denial of the Armenian Genocide, and of the Armenian diaspora's campaign for its international recognition.[1][2] Dink was prosecuted three times for denigrating Turkishness, while receiving numerous death threats from Turkish nationalists.[1][3][4][5]Hrant Dink was assassinated in Istanbul in January 2007, by Ogün Samast, a 17-year old Turkish nationalist. This was shortly after the premiere of the genocide documentary "Screamers" in which he is interviewed about Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and the case against him under article 301. While Samast has since been taken into custody, a couple photographs of the assassin flanked by smiling Turkish police and gendarmerie, posing with the killer side to side in front of the Turkish flag with joy and pride, have since surfaced. The photos created a scandal in Turkey, prompting a spate of investigations and the removal from office of those involved.[6][7]At his funeral, one hundred thousand mourners marched in protest of the assassination, chanting "We are all Armenians" and "We are all Hrant Dink". Criticism of Article 301 became increasingly vocal after his death, leading to parliamentary proposals for repeal.
