Day of insubordination to Saakashvili

2011-03-24 19:46

15039.jpegTrying to erase the population's memory of the old Soviet holidays, the Georgian authorities are surely dreaming of a peaceful and quiet May beginning. But the mellow mood of the republic leaders will be broken anyway: according to Nino Burdzhanadze, the Georgian opposition chose the 2nd of May as the Day of National Insubordination. And if the May Day and the Day of the Victory can still be cancelled in Tbilisi, the actions of Mikhail Saakashvili's opponents will surely become reality for the ruling regime.


"The implacable will not retreat and will achieve the victory", stressed the ex speaker of the Georgian Parliament who is now one of the most active political opponents of Mikhail Saakashvili. In her words, protest actions will be hosted not only by the capital Tbilisi. On the 2nd of May people who are tired of misery and penury are ready to go outside even in the most remote parts of Georgia.

The date of the beginning of large-scale protest actions was disclosed during the visit of the leader of the "Democratic movement "United Georgia" to France. Now she is consulting with some representatives of executive and legislative bodies and, to all appearances, is achieving rather good results. According to Burdzhanadze herself, any possible provocations of Saakashvili's supporters with regard to the protesters will be judged by Paris quite severely. "France will not leave the Georgian people without its reaction, if the president Mikhail Saakashvili sends 'sonder brigades' against peaceful people", she said.

The attention of the Western countries to the protest marches of Georgian people is really great. Mikhail Saakashvili's opponents pay their visits to the USA and European Union countries with enviable regularity, and they are received on the same level as the Georgian president. For example, the leader of the Georgian Labourist Party Shalva Natelashvili is having negotiations with the representatives of some lobbyist groups in America. By the way, Washington itself does not abjure even some financial support of the opposition. Not long ago the leader of "Free Democrats" Irakly Alasania declared that the USA have granted about 26 million dollars to various Georgian opposition parties and non-governmental organizations.

The West understands that the leader of the "Revolution of Roses" has already lost all of its heroic gloss. The wave of ingenuous happiness that emerged after the deposition of Eduard Shevardnadze has rushed back. Now the country is threatened by a tsunami of popular discontent. One cannot pay for food, gas, water and electricity with just some talks about "liberty" and "democratic values". The more so as the notorious Georgian "democracy" has undergone an inflation that is not less than the prices of bread, sugar and eggs.

Naturally, Washington and Brussels would like to eliminate Saakashvili by way of election: in this case the West will be able not to lose its face, trying just to replace its ex idol with a more civilized candidate. But the Georgian people may even not have enough patience to wait till 2013. That is why the American and European politicians would like to take control over opposition meetings, in order not to admit the rise to power of a person not belonging to the stack of Mikhail Nikolozovich's successors loyal to them. However, many of the West's favourites, such as Burdzhanadze, do not forget that the future of the country is impossible in complete isolation from Russia, so Saakashvili's retirement will surely ensure considerable warming in the relations between Moscow and Tbilisi.
