Vardges Gaspari is not the activist you'd expect. To start with, he does not stand up, he prefers to peacefully lie down on the pavement, or on the court floor, and be dragged away by the police rather than walk with them. Born and raised in Teheran, the 59-year-old electric-ware importer moved to Yerevan in 1986 and soon got involved in the movement for Nagorno Karabakh's independence. Since 2005 he's been been a regular in Armenia's civil rights movement and demonstrations, even as a sole protester.
