1 km AWAY, 100 km CLOSE

For years, when there was no border issue, people on both sides used to have close relationship with each other. Only several years ago the border control was strengthened. In spite of the border remaining non-demarcated, there is strong control on it. Moreover, there is no sign for people to realize where the lands of their villages start and where they end. Now the only thing people dream about is to have a check-point which would allow people to go from one village to the other one beyond the border. Crossing the border illegally leads to huge fines and even imprisonment.

To all folks out there in Diaspora who are interested in what the hell is going on in #Armenia. It may help to imagine situation to some extent. This #movie have been made by #documentary director #Ara-Shirinian. It’s long, there are 6 parts in it, not a high quality footage, but it has English #subtitles, that’s why I share it.
It tells a #story about #epic #fail to #change the #system by #peaceful #revolution, without #force. Authorities used #army against #demonstrants which is against #constitution. It happened back in #2008, but I believe nothing really changed since then. #Authorities even gained more strength these days and are able to show that we have more #free-speech and everything is okay. So this movie is called #Change. As we got to know later from #wikileaks West did not support the change here. It was ok to trade #democracy for the authorities they can better manipulate. Nobody needs really independent authorities here.
