‘Sex bombs’ as new ‘weapons of mass distraction’ in Armenia?

This erotic show, or whatever it was, reportedly was staged at the Northern avenue to ‘coincide’ with the opposition rally at the nearby Liberty sq. in Yerevan. Some claim that the authorities started using sex as a ‘weapon of mass distraction’ :))
Not surprising that regime used sex (half naked women in black/red lingerie) to try to distract from Liberty Square
Whether this is the case or not, the coincidence is hilarious.

P.S. ‎'Toilet blockade': Reports from Yerevan confirmed by RFE/RL & friends that all surrounding Liberty sq cafes were forced to close down. 'Official' explanation - the weather. However, people believe that it was imposed to prevent opposition tent camp activists using toilets there.

I am hearing that due to 'toilet blockade' at Liberty sq business at other nearby cafes went up as people go there instead.

Some business owners at nearby cafes allow protesters using toilets free of charge.

P.S. (2) Armenia first president, opposition Armenian National Congress leader Levon Ter-Petrosyan will have Q&A tomorrow 3 October 6.30pm at Liberty square in Yerevan.

Email questions to, tweet to @ancongress or SMS to 093 130515 by 5pm 3 October

He promised to answer all your questions, even personal ones. Sounds like a good initiative to me. Let's see how it will go.

I don't think regime's show by the strippers on Hyusisayin Poghota and the HAK meeting in Liberty Square have the same target audiences.
