This April they are going to increase the gas price again in Armenia. This is ABSURD!
After any increase of gas prices come price hikes of food and consumer goods.
The prices of foods is already as high as in U.S but the average income of a family is about $150. The unemployment rate is more than 20%
For the past 10 years, the systematic increase of the utility and food prices has pushed the 99% of the population in Armenia below the poverty level. Of course the richest 1% of the country can afford any price because they have billions of dollars. But for the thousands of poor families this is a catastrophe. They cannot keep up with runaway price increases. This is no short of genocide of their own people by their own people.
Who or what can stop this vicious cycle that leads to poverty and despair for millions of people?
TOGETHER WE CAN! We have to follow and keep track of the economic and social changes in other countries. We have to keep the governments responsible for their actions and make them do what's right for the people. We have to give people a chance to live and prosper, and not just in Armenia but in all impoverished countries.
Those people in Armenia despotically need our help, because their spirit is broken as their ability to fight this great injustice. They have no trust on their own government.
If we do nothing, no matter how well we are doing now, one day we will find ourselves in the shoes of those poor. That's why it is critical that you sign this petition!
