Residents To Protest Against Stone-Cutting Plant Construction



The residents of 7 Massiv, Nor Nork, Yerevan City, will hold a protest
demonstration against the construction of a stone-cutting plant at
3:00 p.m. January 24, says the statement of residents addressed to
EcoLur. During 25 years they have been beautifying and greening the
territory, where a huge amount of construction garbage was collected
after the site development of dwelling massifs in the Soviet time.

Several houses have been construction on the same territory. The
residents have applied to Yerevan Municipality many times with a
request to permit them to legalize their right to property they have
been cultivating for many years. But the Yerevan Municipality, despite
recognizing their right to first priority for obtaining the territory
as a property, put forward different reasons for refusal. In 2011 this
territory was included into “Agroholding” company, which intends to
construct a stone-cutting plant. The heads of the company stated to
the resident, they obtained the territory in 2003. “The stone-cutting
plant will turn into a real disaster for residents living nearby,
while the parks will be destroyed,” the statement says. The residents
intend to invite the Member of Parliament from their area Samvel
Farmanyan and Head of Nor Nork administrative area Armen Ulikhanyan
to take part in this protest demonstration, EcoLur reports.
