Electric Yerevan, also known within Armenia as No Robbery (Armenian: Ոչ թալանին, Voch t'alanin) protests, were mass protests which occurred in the summer of 2015 against a 17% hike in electricity rates within Armenia.
Mismanaged foreign monopolistic utility firms
Should always be made public before we all burn
For the cost of heating we take another beating
Our wills are now seething, when will we all learn

Civic societies are burgeoning in the world

We don't want to be the bitch of any superpowers
Color revolutions fade, we want cheap power
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan
We say no to corruption and no to plunder
Billionaire playgrounds are going under
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan

Brutal police crackdowns with water cannons
Serve to irrigate the seeds of discontent and malcontent

Civil disobedience working like a charm

We don't want to be the bitch of any superpowers
Color revolutions fade, we want cheap power
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan
We say no to corruption and no to plunder
Billionaire playgrounds are going under
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan

It seems like the brutal police crackdown with water cannons and beating up people including journalists has predictably brought more people out into the streets of Yerevan today. This was a peaceful sit in. The police had the right to clear it and legally detain people without using undue force. The situation should not be politicized by foreign media or governments. This is a non-political reaction to an endemic economic marginalization of a large segment of the Armenian populace. The government of Armenia should make every effort to ameliorate the economic suffering of its citizens.

Fists up!

We don't want to be the bitch of any superpowers
Color revolutions fade, we want cheap power
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan
We say no to corruption and no to plunder
Billionaire playgrounds are going under
Electric, electric, electric
Electric Yerevan

Mismanaged foreign monopolistic utility firms
Should always be made public before we all burn
For the cost of heating we take another beating
