YEREVAN, APRIL 18, ARMENPRESS.
On April 16 in the central Old city square of the Czech capital hundreds of Armenians of the Czech Republic held a protest against the Azerbaijani large-scale military operations committed against Nagorno Karabakh in the beginning of April. The protesters came with "The OSCE, stop the Azerbaijanii harassments", "The Minsk Group you ought to stop Aliyev's aggression", "Russia and Israel stop selling weapons to Azerbaijan", "Protect our rights to life and self-determination", "Azerbaijan hands off Artsakh", "#NKpeace, #KarabakhNow" calls. Patriotic songs were performed and information leaflets were distributed among more than two thousands residents and visitors of Prague.
As "Armenpress" reports, the peaceful demonstration, which received the permission by the Prague Municipality, took place without incidents.
We want to remind you that several days ago all organizations of the Armenian community of Czech Republic applied to the state authorities to demand the condemnation of the Azerbaijani aggressive actions.
The protest action was held by the Armenian community's "April 24 committee" initiative (which included the diplomatic staff of the Armenian Embassy, the heads of nearly all organizations and priests of the Armenian community in Czech). The members of the "ArmPrague" student-youth organization were actively involved in the protest. 200-250 people participated in the protest. It was expected that more people would take part, however, as a result of the heavy rain the organizers even had to delay the protest for half an hour.
