"Transport" disobedience gathers pace in Yerevan

  • by Nana Martirosyan

  • Thursday, July 25, 05:56

The actions of protest against the 50% rise in the public transport fare are gathering pace in Yerevan. 
ArmInfo's correspondent reports from the scene that thousands of protesters have made their way from Mashtots Park to Republic Square. They are holding posters and drums. Car drivers are also taking an informal part in the action. They are beeping and crying out various slogans. Bike riders are holding posters saying "Let's Pay 100 AMD".    
The Free Car campaign participants keep on giving a free lift to the citizens. However, the activists report that the police stop the cars of some participants of the campaign and try to fine them.   
To note, the protests have been held since July 20. Some drivers have already joined them. Today morning the drivers of microbus line N20 began a strike in front of Taron Margaryan's house. The drivers of microbus line N82 (owned by MP Samvel Alexanyan) continue charging just 100 AMD form their passengers. The activists protesting against the rise in the public transport fare in Yerevan to 150 AMD have launched a freecar.am website. Officially more than 10 drivers have joined the Freecar action but unofficially there are more than 100 drivers who are giving people free lifts all over Yerevan.
