Georgia: the parade is run by opposition2009-05-27 15:12
Georgia has celebrated the Independence Day. President of the country Mikhail Saakashvili set another record in his anti-Russia declamation by having promised to bring the country to a better tomorrow. A multi-thousand oppositional meeting chanted "Saakashvili is not our president!", demanding his resignation.
According to the opposition, the 26th of May was to become a fateful day in the Georgian history. Yet, there is only one fact to be acknowledged so far: on that day, the uncompromising opponents, the authorities and the oppositionists, have shown the best of their persistence and polarity of positions. The truth is that the country government abandoned a number of traditional holiday events in order not to vex the radically-minded opposition. However, not all the ceremonies were given up.
Three years ago, on the Independence Day, Mikhail Nikolaevitch opened the well-known museum of Soviet occupation; now, the year of 2009 was marked by opening a military cemetery at the place of the communal grave in Mukhatgverdi where those having died in the August war were buried. Saakashvili has traditionally blamed Russia for all the misfortunes and promised his people a better tomorrow. Mikhail Nikolaevitch did not mince his words: "Today we are celebrating the day, which our enemy was not planning to celebrate on 26 May 2009, - the Georgian media is quoting him. - I would like to remind you that last year, on the 12th of August, Russian armor was at the approaches to Tbilisi, and the Russian generals had an order to capture Tbilisi... to tread down the five-cross Georgian flag, burying the idea of Georgia's independence once and forever... It means to reestablish the Soviet Union... We still have to fight the mess that the Russian Empire has left us with, and these days, the mess is fighting us at least in Georgia".
According to him, Georgia is going to rise and continue its struggle. "The best tribute to the memory of our heroes who have died would be a strong, successful, well-developed, free, democratic, European Georgia. We are going to surprise that of our enemies who believes the ruining and destruction of our country to be irreversible...", - Saakashvili concluded his passionate address.
