On April 10-17, the “For the sake of the state of Armenia” is preparing for new rallies and bringing more people to the streets. As stated by Petros Makeyan, Chairman of the Democratic Homeland party, member of the Coordinating Group for the “For the sake of the state of Armenia”, regardless of expectations of some forces, all their demonstrations and actions will go on without any violence.
“The authorities are concerned about the resumption of the struggle, noting that a new movement has begun, but with old faces, who, after being imprisoned, continue to strugglle against them. In publications and statements it is said that we are getting ready for a fight. We are also accused of supporting “Sasna Tsrer”. And if the Government feels real danger, they can put new obstacles and declare that we are going to commit illegal actions, even impose on us cases like Sari Tagh or others,” he said.
Susanna Muradyan, a member of the Coordinating Group for the “For sake of the state of Armenia” frontline, stressed that the rally, as well as all further actions would be peaceful.
“It is not necessary to fight against the computer, liking this or that statement or speech, but it is necessary to go out to the square and rally. Change of power will only happen under the pressure of the people,” said the speaker.
Karapet Rubinyan, a former vice-speaker of the RA National Assembly, member of the Coordinating Group for the “For the sake of the state of Armenia”, noted that it was expected to unite with other opposition forces. According to him, if the society felt that the opposition was united, it would join them. At the moment, according to the members of the “For the sake of the state of Armenia”, negotiations are underway with the the Yelk (Way Out) and Yerkir Tsirani parties, and their position will be clear.
