Following photo-posting from Bekaisa, Anoush Armenia posts about the protest dance held yesterday, “April 12, 2007, around 7:30pm, by a group of about 20 Armenians, who gathered at the intersection of Baghramyan and Demirchyan Avenues, once again facing Parliament, and for just a few minutes ran into the middle the intersection to form a circle and dance.”
The point of the dance was to remind the authorities of the events of “April 12, 2004, when thousands of Armenian citizens filled Baghramyan avenue facing the Parliamentary building, in protest against the fraudulent elections and calling for the President’s resignation. […] Shortly thereafter, the protest was dispersed by irreprehensible, unnecessary and brutal violence by military police.” (Anoush Armenia)
“Chvakheq” (Arm. – don’t be afraid), Bekaisa says in her post, “they will not stand for this country’s government to pressure their fellow Armenians – not in 1996, not in 2004, not in 2007 and not in 2008”, adds Anoush Armenia.
However, despite the hype in the blogosphere, the traditional media is mostly indifferent, A1plus being the only news resource to report the action so far.
