The Radio and Television News Association of Southern California
() honored the documentary `Nagorno Karabakh, Artsakh: The
Struggle for Freedom’ with Golden Mike Awards.

The film’s co-producer and co-writer, Peter Musurlian, accepted the
award at a ceremony at the Universal Hilton Hotel. The other
co-producer and co-writer of the film is the former Permanent
Representative of the NKR to the USA, currently NKR Deputy Foreign
Minister, Vardan Barseghian. Most of the video material for the film
was provided by an Artsakhian journalist, head of the Tsir Katin (Milky
Way) Studio Narine Aghabalian.

In September 2008, the film was screened in Washington, D.C., on
Capitol Hill, at an event titled: `NKR/Artsakh: 20 Years of Freedom,
Democracy, and Progress’. The event was attended by Members of the U.S.
Congress, diplomats, prominent human rights activists, experts, and
community representatives.

Established by the Association 59 years ago, the Golden Mike Award is
one of the most-coveted by Radio and Television journalists. Among this
year’s award recipients is CNN’s well-known journalist Larry King.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
