YEREVAN. – If the government continues to protect the boutiques in such a manner then the struggle of environmentalists against boutiques will turn into struggle against the system which protects those boutiques, political scientist, member of the dismantling brigade Andreas Ghukasyan announced in Mashtots Park on Wednesday.

Another activist, Manvel Sargsyan, told Armenian that they have never seen the police realizing their promises.

Film Director Tigran Khzmalyan, who is also among protesters, mentioned that the police are setting up a show by bringing 300 officers against 10 or 20 activists.

To note, police officers brought out political scientist Andreas Ghukasyan, blogger Armen Hovhannisyan and film director Tigran Khzmalyan from the boutiques by force. The activists were trying to cross the barrier in order to dismantle the boutiques. The police did not arrest them.
