FREEDOM SQUARE, MAY 2

Monday, May 5, 2008

Two months after the bloody events of March 1st, 2008, in Yerevan, Armenia, the men in blue are still occupying the so-called Freedom Square which I have always called La Place de l'Opera, because that's really what it is.

There one can rent a bicycle or a little electric vehicule for their child, for a short time... The place used to be alive with city folks of all ages, but now it's just a sad desert of asphalt. In the picture (which isn't great, but it shows what it shows) the Opera building stands in the background.

Toys, with no children playing, an opera with nobody singing, and crowd control with nobody crowding. Sad as a bell with no ringing.
