02/28/23 - Rep. Sherman posted the following to Facebook: "35 years ago today, #Azerbaijani mobs attacked #Armenian residents of #Sumgait, setting off pogroms that would last days and spread to multiple towns. These events led to unspeakable crimes - not only murders of Armenians, but also brutal acts of torture, rape and immolation. This tragic anti-Armenian massacre helped touch off a wave of anti-Armenian violence that spread to Kirovabad in November 1988 and to Baku in January 1990, which culminated in the forcible expulsion of 390,000 #Armenians from #Azerbaijan and the 1991-94 war over #Artsakh. As we remember the #SumgaitPogrom's victims, over 100,000 #Armenians in #Artsakh still face a brutal blockade by #Azerbaijan - another brazen attempt at ethnic cleansing by Baku. To honor the past victims of anti-Armenian hate, we must fight this hatred when we see it today." View the Facebook post here.
