Binghamton makes a day for genocide

May 21 will be known as Ukrainian Genocide Remembrance Day in the City of Binghamton, NY, declared by Mayor Matt T. Ryan today at City Hall. The announcement was made at a commencement ceremony awaiting the Holodomor Remembrance Flame, but it was held up in Yonkers (which has a Ukrainian Heritage Festival June 13-15). Binghamton (the 9th greenest city in the US) already has Ukrainian Independence day on August 24, and has over a century of Ukrainian history.

Here’s a video from NBC-34:

UPDATE: I noticed that the article used awaiting the Flame was first titled ‘Genocide remembrance ceremony planned’, but now ‘Genocide’ has been removed.
