U.S. Embassy cautions American citizens about ANC march in Yerevan

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Embassy in Armenia issued a Demonstration Notice informing U.S. citizens in Armenia about Armenian National Congress (ANC) opposition bloc rally on September 30, 2011.

“An authorized political rally will be held on September 30, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at Freedom Square, followed by an authorized march through central Yerevan. The march is expected to start at Liberty Square, proceed down Mashtots Avenue, Amiryan Street, Nalbandyan Street, Tumanyan Street, Northern Avenue and return back to Liberty Square, but it could also spread to other downtown areas. U.S. citizens should exercise caution and consider alternative routes to avoid the downtown area during the march, as it may create traffic disruptions.

We remind U. S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence without warning. You should avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any demonstrations. Stay current with media coverage of local events and be aware of your surroundings,” the Embassy statement read.
