Yesterday, on Friday, 14th of August young members of Aremnian National Congress (ANC) and particularly members of HIMA and Hatuk Gund youth intiatives organized a youth demonstration in support of Tigran Arakelyan – opposition young activist – who was detained on 5th of July (Day of Constitution) based on the fabricated charges of hooliganism (more about the case here and here).
Opposition young activists started their demonstration from the ANC Headquarters and continued downtown Yerevan. They were holding posters in support of Tirgan and other political prisoners as well as they were chanting famous opposition slogans such as “Struggle, struggle till the end” and “1+1+1+1+1+”.
Representatives of the opposition youth activists reaffirmed their readiness to organize regular public awareness raising demonstrations until all political prisoners are set free. Next demonstration is scheduled on next Friday, 21st of August.
No incidents were recorded with policemen although they were following the youth through the whole demonstration.
