The inhabitants of Teghut and Shnogh villages joined the social movement against Teghut Project. They came Yerevan on the11-th of June to participate in the protest action at the Government House RA, continuation of which later took place at the Parliament RA.
The farmers are worried about the very low prices, that “Vallex Group” Company pays for their lands. “35-50 drams for square meter, is it money? We live at the expense of these lands, and the money offered by the Company are earned during the summer”, says an old farmer.
The young farmers have joined the Youth movement against Teghut Project and say, that they don’t want the lands and water to be poisoned.
The farmers applied to the Government RA for help, but they haven’t got any answer yet.
The activists have also spread an appeal to boycott the activity of Russian “VTB” bank, which has given nearly 275 million dollars for the realization of Teghut Project. Particularly, the activists want people to close their accounts of that bank and not to pay municipal payments in “VTB”.
