If the Constitutional Court refuses to abolish the compulsory component of the accumulative pension system, the I Am Against civic initiative will organize acts of civil disobedience, member of the initiative Gevork Gorgisyan said at the initiative's rally against the system today.
He specified that the initiative may start blocking streets and roads, disseminating leaflets, refusing to negotiate with the authorities, organizing strikes and urging people to cash their bank accounts. "We have lots of original methods," Gorgisyan said, noting that in case of mass protests, they may even urge people to stop paying bills. "So, the Constitutional Court is simply obliged to dismiss this system," he said.
To remind, the Court is to consider this issue on Mar 28.
