On September 20, the events dedicated to environmental mobilization were held on in Mashtots Park in Yerevan. Within the framework of Environmental Mobilization Day discussions were held with the public on the following three topics: "Global Climate Crisis and Mobilization Day Worldwide", "Environmental Issues and Environmental Movement of Armenia" and "Mining Problems and Solutions".
"We are living in the destruction of the sixth mass life forms on the planet. Scientists say it has been about eight years since mankind can maintain it at least in a controlled environment,”said Arpine Galfayan, a member of the Armenian Environmental Front. Arpine Galfayan noted that the residents of Jermuk fighting for Amulsar have stated that they will wait ten days for the Armenian government to change its decision and finally settle within the framework of scientific facts and law to close this mine. And if that doesn't happen, there will be lesson and job strikes in Jermuk.
AEF member Anna Shahnazaryan said: "In the case of the Amulsar project, even Lydian had estimated that the Gndevaz community would become poor. Jermuk will become completely impoverished.” At 18:30 the march to Republic Square near Aram Khachaturian Opera House will launch.
