12-hour rally to be staged outside government tomorrow


20-year-old Zaruhi Petrosian was beaten to death on October 1, 2010. Following the incident, a number of NGOs concerned about the issue set up Coalition against Violence against Women that demands fair trials and aims to prevent such incidents.

The coalition will stage a 12-hour peaceful rally outside the Armenian government on October 1. The rally starts at 9:00 am and ends at 9:00 pm.

At 11:00 am on the same day the coalition will hand a letter to Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan. In the letter, they appeal to the government to keep its promise and pass a law preventing family violence.

The coalition will henceforth mark National Day of Fight against Family Violence on October 1 each year.
