The protest against the new price of electricity in Yerevan, Armenia. Citizens organized a peaceful sit down demonstration near the Armenian president’s residence, Baghramyan avenue. The police blocked the way to the residence. At 5:10 in the morning of 23rd of June the police forced back the peaceful activists with water cannons, forced more than 240 social activists to go to police stations, broke journalists’ gadgets and recording devices. After the incident people made graffiti on some walls with the following expression: “This hasn’t been watered” which means that the activists are not going to give up.

They spend  nights in the street demanding from the president of Armenia to cancel the new law and agreement according to which the price of electricity will be raised by 40%.

In the morning of 24th of June the activists started cleaning the avenue, new people joined the rows and shared food and drinks with the ones who spent the night in the main street of the city. Some of them threw flowers to the police as an act of peace and kindness. The protest is still going on. The participants have promised to stay there as long as it takes to cancel the new law.

guys i need your attention please! since yesterday many people were protesting against the government’s decision to cut the previdence beneficts (the cut is due to money the government took from the people) given to public school teachers in Paraná, Brazil. the protests were happening in Centro Cívico, Curitiba. Differently from what happened a day ago, the confronts between the protestants and the police was brutal. Tear-shell and rubber bombs were used, not only severely hurting people, but some were also thrown at ambulances trying to take those who were injured to safety. day care centers were emptied because the gas was affecting the children. two teachers died during the manifestation that turned out to be a bloody war. we can’t let this happen anymore, don’t let the people who fought for an important cause go unnoticed! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!

I hope it’s in our generation that the next government over through happens.

We’re so curropt it sickens me. Why is it that people who already have EVERYTHING get to sit in their towers and get paid mass amounts of money while others DIE in the streets everyday.

Why to they get to sit in their houses and have the time of their life while others lose everything they own and suffer in the chaos. Why do people who have no money have to pay taxes and go bankrupt while others wipe their asses with hundred dollar bills and not give a shit about the people they’re destroying.

SO tell me, when will we use our GIVEN RIGHT to over through this fucked up government?

Reblog if you agree.

The protests down there have gotten extremely out of hand. People are looting stores, breaking store windows, throwing bike racks into people and stores, throwing rocks at police, jumping on cars, breaking windshields, attacking Oriole fans, and last I saw , someone set a CVS on fire. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STAY SAFE!!!
