Honoring Jamal Khashoggi: Los Angeles Renames Street in Tribute to Human Rights Advocate

In a moving tribute, authorities in Los Angeles have officially renamed a street near the Saudi Arabian consulate in honor of the late journalist and human rights activist, Jamal Khashoggi. The decision to rename the street as “Khashoggi” was granted approval by local authorities back in April. The ceremonial renaming was executed on October 2, marking the anniversary of Khashoggi’s tragic death in 2018.

This act serves as a symbolic recognition of Khashoggi’s enduring legacy and the ongoing quest for justice surrounding his untimely demise. By dedicating a street in his honor, it emphasizes the global demand for accountability and upholding the principles that Khashoggi fervently advocated.

It’s pertinent to mention that this renaming comes on the heels of another recent commemoration in the city – the establishment of Artsakh Square near the Azerbaijani Embassy a month ago. These initiatives underscore Los Angeles’s commitment to acknowledging significant global events and individuals, promoting awareness, and taking a stand for human rights.
