POLITICAL SITUATION IN ARMENIA

POLITICAL SITUATION IN ARMENIA

The political turmoil in Armenia has a history of three decades. It began in February of 1988, when the war between Azerbaijan and Armenia broke out. The war occurred because of the territorial dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, an area populated by ethnic Armenians with a small Muslim Azeri population. The war was popular in Armenia, but there was some opposition. There were small groups of peace activists who protested against the war and advocated that the conflict could be resolved through peaceful negotiations. Members of these groups petitioned the Armenian authorities in 1988-1991, but without success. During their protests, many peace activists were severely beaten, detained and arrested by the police and the Yerkrapah.
