The members of the youth union of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun (ARF-D) political party, who demand the resignation of Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport Arayik Harutyunyan and have been holding a sit-in in front of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport since last week, are holding a public rally today.
As the participants of the sit-in had declared, they will specify their future actions during the rally.
On November 7, the young members of the ARF-D held a protest with the demand for Arayik Harutyunyan’s resignation in front of the government building and marched towards the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport where they launched a termless sit-in. They were also joined by students of the Faculties of Armenian Philology and History at Yerevan State University who had launched a student strike the day before as a sign of protest against the bill on higher education and science.
Arayik Harutyunyan has announced that he is not going to resign.
