Members of "Kamk" initiative held a protest against biased approach  of  authorities towards country`s political forces 

ArmInfo. RA Police detained leader  of the "Kamk" initiative Vahagn Chakhalyan and its members,ArmInfo  correspondent reports.  Members of the initiative gathered in front  of the residence of the President of Armenia and stated that they  intend to transmit a letter to President Armen Sarkiassian and give a  press conference.

<We intend to hand over the letter to the President of Armenia and  put him to shame for adopting the Lanzarote Convention. These people  do not want our students to go through the history of the Armenian  church, the Armenian language and the history of Armenia, but promote  sexual education so that they can implement their program. Everything  possible is being done so that political figures in Armenia could not  hold protest actions. Monopoly right to hold a protest was given to  Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. We are dissatisfied with the similar  biased approach that the Armenian authorities take towards political  forces. We will not tolerate privileged political forces in Armenia>,  Chakhalyan emphasized. The Police suggested the protestors to  disperse, however, the latter did not comply with this requirement,  after which the police detained them .

It should be noted that the Armenian parliament at a meeting on May  11 approved a bill signed in Lanzarote on ratification of the Council  of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual  Exploitation and Sexual Violence. The CE Convention was adopted on  October 25, 2007, and entered into force on July 1, 2010. It is  signed by 47 countries and has entered into force in 45 states. The  Republic of Armenia signed the Convention on September 29, 2010. The  Convention, setting common standards and definitions applicable in  all European countries, is designed to protect children from sexual  exploitation and use. The objectives of the convention are the  prevention and combating of sexual exploitation of children and  sexual violence, the protection of the rights of children affected by  sexual crimes, and the promotion of domestic and international  cooperation in combating sexual exploitation and sexual violence  against children.
