Wreath Laying Ceremony Tomorrow

Monday, June 15, 2009
Tuesday, June 16th, an international commemoration ceremony will take place from 10:30-11:00 AM at the Victims of Communism Memorial ("VOC") in Washington D.C.

This ceremony will feature wreaths and flowers from countries around the world -- from those that suffered the iron grip of Communism in 20th century Eastern Europe and the former Soviet bloc, to those that continue to suffer from Communist oppression in China, Cuba, North Korea and Vietnam to this day.

The VOC Memorial was dedicated by President George W. Bush on June 12, 2007. The dedication ceremony featured the unveiling of the "Goddess of Democracy," a bronze replica of a statue erected by Chinese students in Tienanmen Square in the spring of 1989.

The Memorial is located at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and New Jersey Avenue, N.W. on Capitol Hill.

Please consider attending.
