The dismantling of the Afrikians’ House, one of the old buildings in the Armenian capital included on a government list of properties subject to demolition, resumed in the morning.
A group of activists have again gathered outside the building to prevent the demolition. In the meantime, the workers continue their work.
The Afrikian Club Building is a unique late 19th-20th century structure listed among architectural heritage of national importance which is today included on a government list of properties subject to demolition.
Starting from June 9, 2014 the contractor agency started to dismantle the building. Thanks to the efforts of a few dozens of citizens, professionals and media it has been possible to abort the dismantling attempts so far.
