    Lithuanians in Canada joined civic campaigns commemorating the victims of the January 13, 1991

    On the 30th anniversary of the Day of Freedom Defenders many Lithuanians, living in Canada, actively participated in the virtual tribute run (walk) “Road of Life and Death” and joined the Forget-Me-Not campaign upon the invitation by the Embassy of Lithuania to Canada.

    Many of those, who took part in the tribute run (walk), completed a symbolic distance of 9 km. That is the distance from Vilnius TV Tower to Antakalnis Cemetery, where the victims of the events of January 13th are laid to rest.

    Lithuanian communities from coast to coast also joined the Forget-Me-Not civic campaign, which became an annual event, dedicated to the Day of Freedom Defenders. Photo gallery of both campaigns can be found here: http://ca.mfa.lt/ca/en/gallery/listing/id.458

    We highly appreciate the community's active involvement in the commemoration of January 13th!
