Georgian radical opposition blocks traffic on Kostava prospect near Georgian Public Television, David Gamkrelidze, one of opposition leaders said at the meeting in front of the parliament on April 14.

Opposition will place 10 tents in which members of opposition will stay. They will block traffic during 24 hours, he said.

Presently, there are three hot points in Tbilisi where roads will be blocked. One of them is the president's residence in Avlabari. Opposition members placed 15 tents there though the President's office operates without any problems. The second one is Rustaveli prospect where opposition conducts actions daily from 15:00 to 21:00. The third one is Kostava street that will be blocked from 18:00. 

Roughly 5,000 people participated in the action on April 14.
