What happens in central Yerevan when a handful of people start protesting?

Within minutes, the print media arrives and takes interviews. The broadcast media are controlled by the government so there are no demonstrations and grievances in the country as far as they are concerned.

Wait for a few more minutes and the first ment arrives. Within minutes of that, a group of them congregates. If you are not from HAK, they leave you alone.

Here is a video of today's protest about the church headquarters construction site at Yerevan. You can observe what I described during the first 1 minute of the video.
