Opposition Supporters Block Railway
Hundreds of opposition activists and supporters have blocked several railway lines at the Tbilisi central railway station, Civil Georgia reported.
Opposition supporters are led by Nino Burjanadze, leader of Democratic Movement - United Georgia, Davit Gamkrelidze, leader of New Rights, part of Alliance of Georgia; Kakha Kukava, co-leader of the Conservatives Party; Salome Zourabichvili, leader of Georgia's Way and Eka Beselia of the Movement for United Georgia.
A passenger train, which was scheduled to depart for Batumi, failed to do so as a result of the blocking. A part of passengers has already returned tickets.
"[Picketing] will continue until it is necessary. We do not speak about exact dates," Burjanadze said. "The rallies will be dynamic. There will be rallies, which may continue for several hours, nights or days."
Uniformed police were not visible and no one prevented protesters from blocking the railway lines.
Irakli Alasania, leader of Alliance for Georgia, however, said that there were actions in which he would not take part, including in blocking highways and railways. He, however, said his team would act jointly with other opposition leaders in other forms of protests.
