PROTEST ACTION HELD IN YEREVAN IN CONNECTION WITH MIKHEIL SAAKASHVILI’S VISIT
June 24 2009
Yerevan – APA. Armenian Mitk (Idea) analytical centre planned to
conduct a protest action in connection with Georgian President Mikheil
Saakashvili’s visit to Yerevan, APA reports quoting Panarmenian. Police
intervened in protesters’ attempts to place placards near presidential
residence, reasoning that they had to clean the area. "We want to ask
President Saakashvli about the anti-Armenian policy against Armenians
of Samtskhe-Javakheti. Georgian authorities are currently conducting
aggressive policy in relation to Armenians. Recently, they denied MP
Shirak Torosyan’s entry to Javahkk and threatened Armenian teachers,"
Mitk centre expert Vahe Sargsyan said.
Although protesters did not manage to carry out their plans, they
declared of their intention to organize protests in other parts
