Armenia: Yerevan central station vacant as strikers blockade roads

Protesters blocked off Yerevan's central railway station during a new wave of unrest due to parliament’s rejection of opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan as Prime Minister on Wednesday. The main cause for the outcry has been Pashinyan’s demand on strikers to cause 'total civil disobedience.' «At the moment it looks like there's no trains going, just like there's no metro going within the city... Еще,» explained Justus, a German tourist. «We're just waiting here and looking at how the situation's going to end up.» Massive protests have engulfed the Armenian capital since April 13, when the ruling party appointed former president Serzh Sargsyan as Prime Minister. On April 23, the newly elected Prime Minister Sargsyan left his post, which sparked celebrations from opposition supporters.
