Georgian opposition tries to resume protest rallies
( Civil ) - The leaders of the united opposition said that they would continue protest rallies and even more people would join them.
Earlier on November 7 police broke up an anti-governmental protest rally outside the Parliament. Reports say, several activists, including Giorgi Khaindrava of the Equality Institute were arrested.
Currently, the protesters and the opposition leaders are again gathering outside the Parliament.
A clash occurred between the patrol police and the protesters earlier on November 7, when the latter tried to block the Rustaveli Avenue. Imedi television aired a footage showing police arresting several protesters.
"We call on everybody to come to the Parliament and let's end with these authorities," MP Koka Guntsadze of the Movement for United Georgia, said.
"If someone thinks that these weaklings [referring to the authorities] will frighten us, they are mistaken," MP Zviad Dzidziguri, leader of the Conservative party said, "nobody will go away and tents will be set up".
