The campaign launched by Azerbaijan-American Alliance founded by Anar Mammadov to raise awareness of US residents of Khojaly genocide is underway.
Posters on Khojaly tragedy have been placed on 34 stations of New York subway, a source in the Alliance said.
Besides, statistical figures about the tragedy are graphically displayed on buildings located in the central streets of New York. This is done by a specially equipped vehicle that projects graphics on buildings in the evening and night in crowded areas.
