Armenian opposition rally participants intend to hold a sit strike

PanARMENIAN.Net - The April 28 rally of the Armenian opposition disappointed many participants. After a procession through Yerevan streets, opposition supporters returned to Liberty Square, demanding continuation of the protest action with a sit strike.

However, leaders of the opposition Armenian National Congress managed to persuade people to leave the square, urging them to gather again on May 31.

Leaving Liberty Square, many rally participants stated they will never join an opposition rally in future.

The Armenian authorities for the first time allowed the radical opposition to hold its rally in Liberty Square of Yerevan after the March 1-2, 2008, events.

The number of rally participants reached 6,000-7,000 that is less compared to previous opposition rallies. Leader of the Armenian National Congress, Armenia’s first president Levon Ter-Petrossian told the rally that that the opportunity for a dialogue with the authorities is not exhausted, the door is half open. The rally was followed by a procession through Yerevan streets – Tuamanyan St. – Mashtots Ave. – Amiryan St. – Republican Square – Liberty Square.
