The I am Against! civic initiative has organized an action in support of people whose employers decline their refusals to be part of the compulsory accumulative pension plan.

One of the activists David Manukyan said that such reports were received mostly from state-funded organizations, schools, hospitals.

"In Armenia the Government does its best to prevent its citizens from protecting their rights. Some employers have even warned their employees that if they refuse to join the plan they will fire them. Our action is a warning for those who act like feudal lords and a hand of support for those who are regarded as vassals," Manukyan said.
