Saakashvili Might As Well Pull Out the «Russian Card»2009-06-15 22:05
The Russian President's statement characterized by quite a tough tone does not leave Mr. Saakashvili any hopes for resuming his dialog with the Northern neighbour. But will it be appreciated by the opposition which caters exclusively for the West?
The activities of the Georgian opposition are taking more and more exotic forms. Sometimes they can be considered either as display of extreme despair or of utmost infantilism, if not to say more. How else can we interpret the suggestion of Manana Nachkebia, a representative of "New Right Wing", to conduct an action of protest near the house of the President's mother Giuli Alasania?
Manana Nachkebia has urged women to address Giuli Alasania and ask her to influence her son for him to stop arresting their children. This is quite like Tbilisi, to solve any problems in a «family circle». But in the current situation to appeal to motherly love of Mrs. Alasania is quite an absurd undertaking. As the arrested young people did not only throw eggs to the Parliament building but attacked the car of David Bakradze, Head of the Parliament.
The new «shame corridors» for deputies have led to new conflicts with the Parliament guards. As is known, on 12 June after the young oppositionists' conflict with deputies near the Georgian Parliament building several participants of that incident were arrested.
As Tina Khidasheli, an activist of the Republican Party, told the reporters, the young people placed a piquet near the Parliament building in Tbilisi, where for the first time in two months after the opposition activities start the deputies met for a special session. According to Khidasheli, seven young people received some bodily injures. They were hit by some bottles. According to the leader of the "New Right Wing" political movement David Gamkrelidze, the building guards and some civilians «beat the young people with iron canes and stones ».
It is clear that young oppositionists bursting into action, voluntarily or not, challenged the no less passionate deputies supporting the President Saakashvili, as well as the Parliament guards and «civilians», easily recognized as members of Mikhail Nikolozovich's secret police, to retaliatory acts of force.
As the young people's actions were of clearly rowdy nature, their arrest is absolutely legal from the point of view of the authorities.
And it is not in the power of Giuli Alasania to make a decision on the further destiny of the arrested oppositionists.
