Civic activists, who have been fighting possible public transport fare
hike in Yerevan, were not allowed to take part in an open session of
Yerevan Council of Elders.

For this reason, they held a protest action near Yerevan Mayor's
office. As a result, 2 activists, Dvin Isanyan and Vahagn Minasyan
were detained.

Although the session is open, the police permit neither the activists
nor the news reporters to enter. They claim that there is no room
inside, and unauthorized persons may participate in the session only
at invitation of the Mayor or the faction of the Council.
