On August 28, at 10:00, S.O.S Sevan Initiative will conduct a protest demonstration in front of the building of the National Assembly calling for MPs to reject the bill on the additional water intake from Lake Sevan endorsed by the Armenian Government.
Reminder: at its session on 23 August, the Armenian Government unanimously endorsed the bill on the additional water intake from Lake Sevan in the amount of 40 million cum developed by Water Committee. Under the bill, the water intake from Lake Sevan will make up 210 million cum in 2018.
The government members didn't refer to the state of Lake Sevan, risks threatening it and the negative balance of the lake was not taken into consideration. On the same day, S.O.S Sevan Initiative addressed an open letter to RA National Assembly Speaker Ara Babloyan, Chair of RA National Assembly Standing Committee on Territorial Administration, Local Governance, Agriculture and Nature Protection Vardevan Grigoryan and all MPs proposing to reject this bill.
