Several dozen women protested Wednesday in front of the Office of the EU Delegation to Armenia, in support of the women and girls of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).
A few days ago, the women of Artsakh sent an open letter to the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and demanded that she contribute to the de-blockage Artsakh with her actions.
Araksya Grigoryan, one of the initiators of the peaceful demonstration, said that they join the mothers of Artsakh, have voiced their respective concerns and words, and will hand them to the head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Andrea Wiktorin.
In the letter, Wiktorin is called upon to take steps to have Artsakh unblocked and to stop Azerbaijan's such terrorist act.
Also outside the EU office, bracelets with braided threads in several colors were distributed to the demonstrators, who voiced the demands of Artsakh mothers.
As the event organizers said, the white color symbolizes the purity of the invincible spirit, red—the victory, and purple—the Armenians’ recollection.
These bracelets were made by the children of Artsakh, and they are distributed to the Armenian youth as a symbol of unity.
