Yerevan, Opposition holding 4 simultaneous car protests

The opposition is holding four simultaneous car protests in Yerevan to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Sputnik Armenia reports.

The vehicles are carrying the flags of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) and driving through the streets of the capital, urging the population to join them.

The campaign also seeks to raise awareness about their upcoming demonstration at France Square, where the group known as the Resistance movement will unveil their demands from the authorities.

In recent days, protesters demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan have taken to the streets to block major roads in the capital Yerevan and call on the population to commit acts of civil disobedience. Pashinian has come under fire after he and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev agreed to start drafting a bilateral peace treaty to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and set up a joint commission on demarcating the borders.
