The confrontation between Local Developers Company, owned by businessman Samvel Mayrapetyan, and residents of the buildings at 23, 25 Teryan Str. and 37 Lalayants Str. have come to a turning point. Local Developers Company – constructor of the buildings since 2007 – filed a lawsuit to move out residents of their flats. The residents, however, are determined to stand up and “vigorously struggle for” their property.

The speakers included: Vardan Geravetyan, resident, member of the Our City Initiative; Sedrak Baghdasaryan, head of the Victims of State Needs NGO; Vardan Gabrielyan, resident, artist; and Flora Udumyan, resident, teacher.
