Armenians returned to the epicenter of the so-called “velvet revolution,” Republic Square, in Yerevan to clean up the area after protests and a night of celebration following the resignation of Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan. Even though the garbage-removal operator managed to do most of the job at night, people set up a Facebook event to clean up the mess after the 10-day-long peaceful protests.
What do you do the day after the revolution? That’s right, clean up the city! A Facebook event on cleaning #Yerevan today already has 2.9K attendees and some 6K more interested. Loving it! #VelvetRevolution#Armenia— Marina Ohanjanyan (@MarinaOhan) 24 апреля 2018 г.
On the morning of April 24, a Deutsche Welle correspondent uploaded a video to her Twitter feed featuring dozens of people washing Yerevan’s central square.
