Anoush Armenia talks about the Sunday’s Sksela/Transparency organized demonstration, noting that “a few blocks short of reaching the Mayor’s office (the final destination of the petition which was signed by hundreds), the march was cut short as the following, highly unexpected, news…” of Prime Minister Andranik Margaryan’s death became known. Here are some extracts from the blog-post:
The idea is to create a concerned citizenry- one which is aware of what is going on its country, and voices its concerns because it recognizes its right and responsibility to play an active role. The idea is growing momentum as evidenced by the fact that attendance at Sunday’s Sksela/Transparency organized demonstration was higher than ever.
The ’cause celebre’ of this particular demonstration? The illegal construction happening in downtown Yerevan and the unconstitutional eviction of people from their homes in order to make way for said construction.
