YEREVAN, June 24. /TASS/. The number of protesters in the center of the Armenian capital Yerevan has reduced from 3,000 to a few dozen people. One of the city’s main streets, Marshall Baghramayan Avenue, is still blocked by the police on one side and by the protesters’ barricades made of plastic garbage cans on the other.
The protest organizers urged their fellow countrymen to "replace those who have been in the streets for two nights". "We will continue our sit-in until victory - until our demand is met that the decision to rise electricity prices is cancelled," the activists said.
The protesters’ coordination group announced the beginning of a sit-in in Armenia’s second largest city - Gyumri. There have been calls to hold similar acts of protest in other cities.
At night a group of Armenian lawmakers, representatives of creative intelligentsia and the business community volunteered to form a living wall between the protesters and the police to prevent clashes between them.
