Transport price hike: protesters pelt Mayoral adviser with coins

PanARMENIAN.Net - A rally is ongoing outside Yerevan Municipality to protest the transportation price hike.

On Thursday, July 18 a 50% increase in public transport price was confirmed, with passengers to be charged AMD 150, up from AMD 100.

During the rally, the protesters pelted the Municipality entrance with 50-dram coins, further trying to block the door; they however, were forced back by the police.

Mayoral adviser Albert Gevorgyan appeared in front of the crowd to negotiate yet was induced to return to Municipality building, having got his share of coins.

“We won’ comply with the unfounded price hike, we’ll continue to struggle for the resolution to be abolished,” the demonstrators said in their Facebook post.
