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.

The final report from the international election mission, also due in April, is expected to make uncomfortable reading for the president. Nonetheless, this is a less troubled start than the early days of Sargsyan’s first term. On 1 March 2008, ten people were killed and scores injured during protests over alleged electoral fraud. Robert Kocharian, the outgoing president and Sargsyan’s old friend, declared a three-week state of emergency, and the parliament passed a law curbing public meetings.

Immediately, it transpired that #Raffi was hovering up the votes. This caused some surprise with the local participants. Indeed, it became somewhat embarrassing in that virtually every vote was for Raffi. Every odd time, a vote came out for the incumbent, there was a slight laugh from some of the locals. On and on, it continued with Raffi getting virtually all of the votes.
