The [opposition] Justice bloc and the National Unity Party leaders,
Stepan Demirchyan and Artashes Gegamyan, said in Yerevan today that
they “will start mass protest actions on Freedom Square at 1600 [1100
gmt] on 9 April”.

They called on their adherents “to take part in the struggle for
returning power to people”.

Demirchyan and Gegamyan’s joint statement was announced at a briefing
at the Armenian National Assembly today, Mediamax reports.

“One year’s existence of the authorities formed through election fraud
was enough to prove that the existence of an illegal regime threatens
the national interests of Armenia,” Demirchyan and Gegamyan’s
statement reads.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
