Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

Here is a statement disseminated by the Pre-Parliament:
To overcome the existential challenges that all Armenians are facing today it is a must to establish a nation-state, and the first precondition of it is the existence of a sovereign government led by national interests. Meanwhile, the current government of the Republic of Armenia and the core of it - the administration not only fail to be led by those interests but also openly serve the foreign powers for the sake of their personal and clan interests. As a consequence of the anti-national and oppressing activities of this system we have reached a state where not only sovereignty but also the physical existence of Armenians in their homeland are endangered. Hence, today the overarching goal for all Armenians is the formation of a representative government in Armenia, serving national interests and Pre-Parliament has undertaken the process of creating the necessary preconditions for reaching this goal.
This nationwide undertaking requires significant resources necessary for the formation of all-Armenian movement targeting the creation and development of a renewed Armenian state. For this purpose we shall particularly need: 1) to attract professionals in the development of the strategic vision of the renewed state; 2) to create a network support structure in Armenia and Diaspora centered around above mentioned goal; 3) to develop and operate an independent media system (TV and e-media ecosystem, etc.); 4) to provide legal and social protection and support to the oppressed and their family members; 5) to form representative governing bodies necessary for the removal of the regime, and first of all - an alternative parliament, and to ensure the legitimization and activities of those bodies. Reaching above mentioned goal implies stopping of any support to criminal administration and its actions to pretend serving national interests and to mislead our people. That purpose is served also by "Hayastan" All-Armenian Fund. It is no longer an instrument for the development of our Homeland and is mainly applied to fulfill the criminal oligarchic interests of the regime at the expense of the Diaspora. Taking into account all the above-mentioned, the Pre-parliament urges all Armenians to stop donating to the regime and to establish an alternative nationwide fund, the main objective of which shall be the formation of the government led by national interests.
