Something incredible is happening in Armenia, finally, Serj Tankian wrote on Facebook posting a link to live coverage of the opposition rally at Republic Square.
“Civil disobedience is growing and taking the form of labor and student strikes against an unjust, corrupt ruling elite. This week is the first week of a new Armenia for whatever happens, the apathy has been dissolved. Serge Sarkissian (old Pres-new PM) has himself admitted that likely 60% of the population dislike and disagree with him. Yet he persists with his patronizing attitude and rule. Serge, no disrespect meant, but you are not our father and we are not your children. You have served the people of Armenia and are no longer a viable, respected leader whether you stay or go rendering your rule ineffective and at this point dangerous. They say it's not over till the fat lady sings.
That lady is Mother Armenia singing her ass off in the streets right now. Watch the developments live in Armenia below. Follow it live as I am below,” he wrote on Facebook.
During the rally at Republic Square, MP and leader of “My Step” initiative Nikol Pashinyan read out Tankian’s message calling him to come and join their movement in Armenia.
“We will welcome you as a national hero,” Pashinyan said.
