US Ambassador to Yerevan Lynn Tracy also took part in the forum.
According to "Armenia.News", the oppositionists were not allowed into the hall, which caused a brawl.
Opposition representatives tried to block the main entrance to the hotel, but Pashinyan entered the forum through a service entrance. The participants said that the prime minister, “who is imposing dictatorship,” and the ambassador, “who visited Azerbaijan,” cannot discuss the future of the country. The demonstrators shout the slogans "Armenia without Tracy", "Armenia without Nikola", "Armenia without Turks". The dissatisfaction of the opposition with the US ambassador was caused by a fragment of the interview in which she expressed that the US is striving to help the Armenian people build a future based on common democratic values. Tracy is accused of a policy of double standards.
Protests in the capital of Armenia have been going on since April 25. The demonstrators demand the prime minister's resignation, accusing him of intending to "surrender Karabakh." On May 6, in the capital, a thousandth column marched through the streets of the capital. Motorists supported the demonstrators with their horns. The day before, on May 5, the opposition blocked the roads.
