The members “S.O.S. Mets Ayrum” Campaign informed that on February 27, at about 12:00 pm, in Mets Ayrum village, Lori Region, they noticed that the trucks belonging to Akhtala OPC CJSC were transporting soil to Nahatak tailing dump to raise the dam of the tailing dump and to increase its capacity.
The members “S.O.S. Mets Ayrum” Campaign blocked the road and barred company cars from moving to the tailing dump. Some time later, as a result of negotiations, the road was cleared.

Mets Ayrum” Campaign are demanding: - to stop the continuous rise of the dam of the tailing dump, - to inform the inhabitants of Mets Ayrum village about the exact dates of reclamation of the tailing dump. Any work on increasing the dam of the tailing dump is illegal,” the statement says.
