Shirak Buniatyan, an activist fighting against the operation of the Amulsar gold mine of Armenia, has posted a video on his Facebook page in which he stated, in particular, that the guards on duty at Amulsar had attacked and beaten the people who are on watch there.
"They dragged [them] inside and started beating [them]. Residents started attacking again. People have serious injuries. It turns out that these people are more provocative than the previous ones. In fact, by hiring these people, Lydian [Armenia company, which is in charge of the Amulsar gold mine project] has given [these guards] a clear task to use force against the residents of the community," Buniatyan said, adding that these guards had left their area and attacked in public area.
