The protesters then left the YSU campus and headed for Armenia’s State Economy University. They attempted to enter the building but were met with a large number of law enforcement officers who began pushing and shoving the protesters and did not allow them entry, forcing the protesters to enter the building from another entrance.

The protesters entered the university president’s waiting room and declared that the Homeland Salvation Movement is demanding that all citizens join the movement. They also entered the lecture halls and urged students to walk out and join the effort.

The protesters said the students and faculty at both facilities supported their effort of demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and his government.
