March 1, 5 years on

No one has answered for March 1. In the footage, there are bone structures for an exploded head and an upper jaw. Neither of the 10 victims recognized officially has such injuries.

That is why I think the number of victims is understated. There are also instances of people disappearing and then their bodies being found a few days into March, 2008. But none of these cases, or missing people, have been investigated.

Popular dissent goes on.

I do not remember students striking since 1988. I remember in school in the early 90-s the ARF wanted us to strike but no one did.

It is probably significant.

Interesting approach.

Raffi's approach of allowing people around Armenia to express their concerns about the election results instead of concentrating in Yerevan is new. While it makes sense for the people who live in the West that when you have an idea, you should have a road show rather than focus on one demographic, it had not been done in Armenia during post election period. It has been done for pre-election times, most memorably in 1999 when Karen Demirjian took his message of "the need to pull Armenia out of the hole it was in".

Let us see how this will proceed and end.

Presidential elections

Another presidential "election" comes and goes. Nothing changes.
