Dean Cain Marches In Armenian Protest

Actor DEAN CAIN joined hundreds of Armenian-Americans marching in the streets of Hollywood on Sunday (24APR05) to mark the 90th anniversary of the mass killings of Armenians by Turks.

Wearing black T-shirts emblazoned with the words "We've Had Enough" and hoisting signs saying "Truth Always Prevails" the crowd marched down Hollywood Boulevard in Little Armenia while leaders released doves into the sky.

Many expressed their desire to have the killings recognised by Turkey and the rest of the world as a genocide.

Cain, 38, says, "People were talking about losing two-thirds of their family, or their entire extended family. So it's really inspired me to learn a lot more about it."

The Armenian government says up to 1.5 million Armenians died over several years as part of a campaign to force them out of Turkey.

Turkey does not deny that many Armenians died, but says most deaths were part of the general unrest during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
