Back observation of the protest actions: the black and white

2009-07-09 17:34

3317.jpegThe Georgian opposition has already announced its plan of actions relating to the meeting of the US Vice President Joseph Biden. On the whole, the oppositionists have won the support of the diplomatic corps in respect of the excessive rigidness of the pending amendments to the law which are going to make the meetings and other protest actions subject to the authorities' control. The decoration of the coming meeting has also been designed: the oppositionists are going to be dressed in white. Moreover, one more oppositional party might also appear by the time of the American guest's arrival.


Leader of the United opposition of Georgia, the non-party Levan Gachechiladze is going to represent a new socio-political movement, Defend Georgia. According to VZGLYAD, in this way, the opposition will continue the structural initiation of the protest wave in order to raise a new wave of protest in September. The opposition promises that it will maintain the coordination mode and hold a conference by September in order to summarize the first results of the protest actions and correct the mistakes.

However, considering the fact that there are over 20 oppositional parties today and the leaders of the existing political alliances are going to establish new ones, one can be sure that there will be a lot more mistakes to be corrected. For instance, leader of Alliance for Georgia Irakli Alasania is also going to present his own party in the near future. Its name, Our Georgia - Free Democrats, has already been announced. Before that, on the 8th of July, it was Irakli Alasania whom Alliance for Georgia appointed as its candidate for the presidency.

In case of an early presidential election, the former Permanent Representative of the country to UN Irakli Alasania will become the Alliance for Georgia's candidate. If Alliance for Georgia takes part in any other election, for instance, in the parliamentary election, local election or the election of Mayor of Tbilisi, then, Alasania will be a number-one candidate in any lists and the principal candidate of the alliance. This was stated by leader of The New Rights David Gamkrelidze and one of the leaders of the Republican Party David Berdzenishvili, as ITAR-TASS reports.

Things are not yet clear as to the way the work between the correlated parties and political alliances is going to be organized. So far, one may only state that the oppositional activists are fighting for foreign support. This week, the oppositional representatives again had a meeting with the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia. This time, they shared with the diplomats their negative opinion of the legislative package of amendments initiated by the ruling party, for these amendments are aimed at stiffening the rules of conducting the protest actions.

Such meetings between the oppositionists and the diplomatic corps have been held regularly but with varied success. The diplomats either criticize the opposition's actions, as the did, for example, during the parliament building picketing on the 12th of June, when the radicals threw eggs at the deputies, or rebuke the authorities, as during the break-up of the oppositional meeting in front of the MIA building, when the journalists also got bruised. However, the diplomatic corps keeps calling the conflicting parties to a dialogue.
