Yes. This is true. YouTube has been censored here in Yerevan Armenia since March 3. However, Internet users can always use proxy servers or anonymity networks (such as Tor) to access any Internet service include YouTube – so long as the Armenian government doesn't completely shutdown the Internet, of course. :)

Welcome to the new authoritarian regime in Armenia ;)

Oh, yeah.... No one in Armenia believes the official government line. According to them, the protesters were trying to "violently overthrow" the government. Meanwhile, pictures from all 10 days of protesting at Liberty Square show a very peaceful crowd (in the tens of thousands, sometimes upto 100,000 marching) who are listening to people speak on the podium and then dancing the night away to Armenian music, shoorjbar and all...

Also, don't believe that there were "riots." While the vast majority of people were peacefully protesting at Miasnikyan Square, police attacked from Prospect Ave. Protesters responded literally with sticks and stones, as police fired tear gas into the crowd and the army started shooting AK-47s.

Later on, police pulled back as only some tens of people looted a grocery store (while some government TV crews filmed and broadcast shortly that evening on television, thereby justifying the "state of emergency").

So the "state of emergency" was totally planned; there were over 30 buses each with 25-30 soldiers armed with AK-47s at 5:30 pm near only one part Republic Square on Mar 1. (This was WAY before the 10pm "state of emergency" called by Kocharian...)

It's really ironic how the people's tax dollars are being used to pay for the civilians to be soldiers and fight their own people, all for a handful of people to maintain their kleptocracy.
