Posted by Info on 23/05/2011

Some 3,000 people gathered on Sunday in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, demanding a resignation of the present authorities as well as early presidential and general elections.
A clash took place here in the morning when there were no more than 30-40 protesters. According to organisers of the rally, policemen, armed with clubs and shields and with the use of tear-gas and rubber bullets tried to disperse the gathering. As a result, several men, including one woman, were injured. In turn, representatives of the Interior Ministry report an attack by protesters on law enforcers.

Leaders of the Nation-Wide Assembly of Georgia (NWAG) which organised the action, reported that a group of unidentified people attacked rally participants. The NWAG goes on with peaceful methods of struggle to achieve a resignation of authorities and fixing early presidential and parliamentary elections.
