Demir said at the beginning of his speech: "The fighter Hrant Dink was a prelude to the Armenian people, and he always tried to show the massacre against the Armenians, and expose the Turkish violations against them."
Demir noted: “Dink was always threatened by the Turkish state, and he was sure that he would be assassinated one day, but he did not care because he was fully aware that this struggle would not end with his death."
Demir continued, "In 2007, the Turkish state assassinated him, believing it would end our people cause, but they could not fulfill their dreams because our cause has become a phenomenon for all peoples of the world."
A screening about the life of the fighter Hrant Dink was shown, followed by a talk about the life of the fighter Hrant Dink.
Then the ceremony was concluded by chanting slogans that glorify martyrdom and martyrs.
