10,000 rally to demand president’s resignation
More than 10,000 demonstrators marched yesterday to demand the
resignation of Armenian President Robert Kocharyan, whom they accuse
of rigging his re-election last year, and to seek a national
referendum on his administration.
Ignoring both heavy rain and a threat by authorities to disperse mass
gatherings, protesters poured into Freedom Square in central Yerevan
and then filed through the city centre without incident.
