    On April 23, former Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan resigned as prime minister, fulfilling the people’s demand amid mass rallies entering a second week.

    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.

    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.
