Demonstrators danced in the streets of Yerevan, Saturday, as protests over Armenia's recent utility price hike continue. Protesters linked arms and danced in circles to traditional Armenian music, while others clapped and waved the national flag.

On June 17 the Public Services Regulatory Committee (PSRC) announced that energy prices would be increased by 16 percent, raising them for the third time in three years. Protesters have been taking to the streets since Friday, even after more than 200 were arrested and the police started to deploy water cannons. Wednesday's rally remained peaceful, but protesters continue to call for the government to release the detained demonstrators.
