The Union of Journalists of Armenia (UJA) strictly condemns today’s attack on “Hayeli” Press Club, assessing the occurrence as trespassing against freedom of _expression_.
Similar activities are a result of the atmosphere, rhetoric, hate speech, existing in our country for a lasting period, against press, media workers and freedom of _expression_.
The occurrence is a logical after-effect of speeches with impermissible content addressed to media outlets and journalists from time to time by country’s leadership, different representatives of political powers.

The Union of Journalists of Armenia (UJA) demands from the law enforcement to urgently reflect to the occurrence and undertake steps toward punishing the guilty, also ensure the security of the media outlet employees.

“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
