Today, the members of the youth union of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun political party, who are gathered near the building of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport with the hope to meet with Minister Arayik Harutyunyan, declared that they were told, through the police, that there is a procedure for meeting with the minister.
“We were told that we have to apply, get enlisted, and if the minister finds it appropriate, he will meet with us. However, our chosen method is accepted around the world, and there have been precedents in Armenia. We are still constructive and will organize the meeting ourselves,” member of the ARF-D youth union Argishti Gevorgyan said, after which the protesters tried to enter the building.
The young members broke through the wall formed by the police and tried to enter the ministry, after which the members and police officers started pushing and shoving. Currently, the situation remains tense, and the young members aren’t retreating.
