The collective image of Vayots Dzor people is multilayered, a bit complicated, sometimes incomprehensible but unique. According to the common stereotypes, perhaps one of the most impressive features of the locals is restraint, more precisely or as people say “take everything personally”. The velvet revolution created many changes in the life of Vayots Dzor population. The stereotypes of the locals were eroded by the active involvement of the velvet revolution. Of course, the chronicle of the velvet revolution of Vayots Dzor was different, distinctive, discreet, somewhat predictable and with special kindness and care.
Like the whole of Armenia, here also, the driving force and leaders of the revolution were youth. Active young people living in the region, including the beneficiary groups of Syunik-Development NGO’s Civil Society Development Programs, participated in the velvet peaceful revolution protests organized in Vayots Dzor Region. The protests had a peaceful nature and were carried out not only in the regional center, but also in surrounding settlements.
