Rally in Vanadzor, Armenia, not allowed

In Vanadzor, Armenia, where there is no emergency situation, as opposed to capital Yerevan, local Helsinki Association submitted formal application to municipality to allow rally in Artsakh sq on 6, 7, and 8 March to discuss current situation in Armenia and exchange news. However, Vanadzor municipality rejected this application citing potentially “unpredictable consequences”. Vanadzor’s Helsinki Association will challenge this decision in courts.
