YEREVAN. – The residents of a building in Yerevan have blocked the road on Saturday again, expressing their dissatisfaction with the high-rise being built next to their building.
They have three demands from the Yerevan city hall. "First, (…) we suspect that there are problems in terms of seismic safety. And second, if our building later became risky, what will happen? Will they evict us from here? What will happen to me? And the third is that the mayor's spokesperson responded to us only when the prime minister responded to [opposition MP] Gevorg Gorgisyan's question in the parliament. He wasn’t aware [of this issue] before. Let them come from the city hall and answer our questions because everything was normal, on paper, even during the time of [preceding Mayor] Taron [Margaryan],” said a protesting resident.
The aforesaid residents blocked—with cars—the road leading to the construction site of the high-rise, and did not allow construction equipment to enter.
Back on August 13, these residents were protesting for the protection of their rights. They were noting that no respective public discussions were held and they do not want the aforesaid high-rise to be built in front of their building, just a few meters away.
