Aramazd is surely taking Internet and Facebook seriously. Just like at the October 26th rally, this time I received an invitation to attend the November 16th opposition rally via my Facebook friend Aramazd Ghalamkaryan. No need to say, that I will definitely attend the event, especially as the title of the rally is very intriguing this time: “Levon Ter-Petrosian Will Speak about 4 Accusations“. I don’t know about the others, but I appreciate Aramazd’s efforts for using the Internet as a medium to communicate opposition related information to the public – although the Internet user-base in Armenia remains rather small. Below is the event info as it appeared on Facebook:
Event InfoName:Demonstration, Friday, Nov 16, 2007, 17:00, Liberty Sq.
Type: Causes – Rally
Time and PlaceDate: Friday, November 16, 2007
Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm
Location: Yerevan, Armenia
Street: Near Opera building
PS: According to Aramazd the authorities are so afraid of the rally, that they are tearing the posters with the announcement about the rally on the streets of Yerevan. I can’t say I’ve seen any state official touching the posters, and there are enough LTP haters in this country to tear the posters without anybody ordering them to do it, but I’m ready to confirm, that the authorities are quite nervous recently.
