A group of men and women staged an overnight protest outside the Los Angeles residence of celebrity Kim Kardashian, urging her to use her influential voice to address the ongoing genocide affecting Armenians in Artsakh. The demonstrators, who have been joined by growing numbers of Armenians, aim to draw attention to the dire situation faced by their compatriots due to a blockade imposed by Azerbaijan, which has left many in Artsakh on the brink of starvation.

The protesters stress the importance of holding the Armenian community accountable and rallying their own before seeking support from others. They highlight that while Kardashian has spoken out about the Armenian Genocide and her Armenian heritage when it aligns with her agenda, the time is ripe for her to leverage her platform and raise awareness about the critical circumstances endured by around 120,000 Armenians in Artsakh due to the Azerbaijani blockade. This event forms a "blockade within a blockade" outside Kardashian's residence, where her security has informed the protesters that their presence has been communicated to her.

The demonstration commenced outside Kardashian's house early Saturday evening and has continued into Sunday. Ironically, reports indicate that Kardashian attended a charity event for humanity last night alongside figures like Jeff Bezos and his fiancée Lauren Sanchez, as well as her own mother, Kris Jenner.

While skepticism prevails among some Armenians in the community regarding Kardashian's potential to effect change in Artsakh's dire humanitarian crisis, the protesters hold a different perspective. They consider Kardashian as one of the world's most influential individuals, believing that her power should not be underestimated. As an Armenian, they argue, she bears a responsibility to utilize her platform in efforts to alleviate the ongoing genocide in Artsakh.

In the pursuit of ending the blockade in Artsakh and ensuring the ability of Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians to live in a liberated and peaceful homeland, every feasible measure is being taken. The demonstrators are rallying for more Armenians to join them until Kim Kardashian adds her voice to the cause.
