The car care in support of Amulsar protectors kicked off from Yerevan to Jermuk, who have been blocking the roads running to the mine for already 11 months. AEF member, the member of the initiative group having organized the car race from Yerevan to Jermuk informed that over 100 people had joined the race from Yerevan. According to her, this number can be more as it’s official number for registered people: many more have joined the race with their own cars. “Since 22 June 2019, Jermuk community residents have been stopping the pirate mining project in Amulsar for over 11 months. We are standing to support our community from upcoming supports and risks for 11 months day and night. For over one year, Jermuk community and all those people who are against metallic mining in Amulsar have been coming out to streets to reconfirm the decision made several months ago. While exercising our constitutional rights, in addition to 3000 signatures from Jermuk Comminity, we need once again to address a message to the Government that the voice and rights of Jermuk residents must be taken into consideration in decision-making process,” the FB event of the car race says.
