Media Advocate reports that during the protest action held today outside the government building police officer hit a reporter impeding his professional activity.

The initiative says that recently it has many times fixed the cases of intolerant attitude of representatives of power structures while contacting with reporters.

“It is violation of both state and international rights of freedom of speech,” the initiative stated, demanding that the police and other power structures stop impeding the professional work of the reporters, not pass limits of politeness and not violate state and international laws.

“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
