The Guardian: Innovative activism emerging in Armenia
2019-01-09 11:14:26

An exciting wave of innovative activism is emerging across the former Soviet Union, Brusseld-based writer and political scientist Barbara von Ow-Freytag writes in an article published by The Guardian.

According to the author, from Russia to Armenia to Belarus there has been a surge in online justice campaigns. And it’s making a difference.

 In Armenia, she writes, “the optimism and energy of young civil society is contagious.”

Anyone still convinced that all is doom and gloom in the post‑Soviet era should pay a visit. Last year, young tech-savvy activists played a key part in encouraging citizens to take to the streets – a grassroots mobilization that led to the resignation of the prime minister. Their communication skills also ensured the protests remained peaceful,” the article reads.
