A demonstration against the compulsory accumulative pension system has started in Yerevan.
ArmInfo's correspondent reports from the scene that the demonstration has been organized by the I Am Against action group and involves several thousand people with flags, drums and torches. The crowd is moving towards Mashtots Avenue with slogans We Are Against, Victory and There is No Way Back.
The torches are meant to symbolize the right way the demonstrators seek to show to those who are still hesitant.
Imposed on Jan 1 2014 the compulsory accumulative pension system caused mass protests all over Armenia. The parliamentary opposition asked the Constitutional Court to consider the reform, with the verdict to be passed on Mar 28.
