Opposition protesters demanding Nikol Pashinyan's resignation blocked the roads leading to the Armenia Marriott Hotel in central Yerevan where a democracy forum was scheduled to be held in attendance of the Armenian premier.

A large number of police forces were deployed outside the hotel building.

"Our main goal is the ouster of Nikol Pashinyan and his government. This is a struggle for the homeland," RPA member Hayk Derzyan said.

He stresses the need for consolidation in Armenia, saying it is impossible so long as Nikol Pashinyan stays in office.

"We won't get tired of fighting; no one is getting tired of the idea. We are fighting for our country, for our homeland," Derzyan said, chanting "Armenia without Turks!".

“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
