April 24 March to Disrupt Traffic at 6500 Wilshire

The annual march protesting the Armenian genocide will take place Friday, April 24. The march will end around noon with a demonstration outside the Turkish Consulate, 6300 Wilshire Blvd. The demonstration will continue into the early evening.

Because 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the genocide's beginning, traffic, parking and Cedars-Sinai shuttle service at 6500 Wilshire are likely to be affected more than in past years. The shuttles' pickup and dropoff point until 7 p.m. that day will be moved to the Big 5 store at 6601 Wilshire.

Shuttle service to other areas may be disrupted as well. Roads will be closed because of the march, which is expected to draw 15,000 people.
