I came across this interesting video which I wanted to share. The author claims, that the maximum amount of people, which Yerevan’s Liberty square can fit is 20,000. It also says the territory around Matenadaran, fits about 10,000 people.
Thus, the author criticizes the police and opposition estimates about the number of people attending opposition rallies.
For example, during the past opposition rally, the police said the number of people in attendance is 9,000, while the opposition leader Levon Ter-Petrossian estimated the number to be 100,000.
These number games and manipulations are common on days of rallies, and while I don’t completely trust the figures brought in the video, nor the conclusions the author is making, it’s an interesting methodology to take a look at and try to do similar calculations in the future.
