Dozens of members and supporters of Canada's Armenian community gathered in front of the Canadian parliament to show solidarity with Armenia amid the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, in Ottawa, on Friday.

Protesters held placards reading "Armenians want peace, Azerbaijan wants war" and "Life is worth more than oil" and waved Armenian flags.

Speakers urged the Canadian authorities "to take a more significant role in ensuring peace in the republic of Artsakh."

One protester said, "I stand here with my proud Armenian sisters, brothers, to stand for our country, to demand justice and to demand peace."

On September 27th, fighting broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan for the control of the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
