I found this announcement today on the YouTube – a user called romamerda1 who seems to have joined the YouTube especially for the purpose of uploading this video has entitled it:”26 October 07 – the meeting for the future of Armenia” and has concluded the video description with the words: “FOR THE LIBERTY OF ARMENIA !!!”
For those who can’t see the video it says: “26 October, Friday, 17:00, Azatutyan Hraparak. First president Levon Ter-Petrosyan’s meeting. Speeches also from Stepan Demirchyan and Aram Z. Sargsyan.”
I can state, that this is the first time ever that a video announcement about opposition rally is going on YouTube – and that means that opposition is really taking the Internet seriously.
This potentially means, that the happy days of freedom of speech for bloggers in Armenia are drawing to a close, because it is easy to conclude, that the RA State Security Services, who have so far only limited themselves by paying some people to stay online and participate in various forums, blogs, video sharing sites, will now be forced to take more serious action – and we can only guess what that action implies.
