2008-10-29 11:19

The new movement will take an active part in protest actions planned for November 7 and will declare an irreconcilable fight against injustice and tyranny that as explained by this new organization members has set in over the country with Saakashvili regime.

The manifest adopted by "November 7" movement reads that today Georgia is governed by the regime the interests of which are in conflict with the interest of absolute majority of the population. "Only upper segments of power structures and a corrupted officialdom are a happy exception", - it is stated in the manifest and it is emphasized that Saakashvili regime governance is driving the country to complete degradation and destruction.


In their fight with the regime in power "November 7" sets a mission of mass media liberation from censorship and control, independence of judicial system, reformation of police forces based on violence, cancellation of all the laws enacted by the current government that have lead to power usurpation by one person and deterioration of the principle of parliamentarism and democratic institutions.

It will be remembered that on November 7 Georgia's non parliamentary opposition is going to hold a large-scale protest action at the building of Georgia's Parliament and declare this day the Day of Fight against Violence. One of the demands to be put forward during this action will be resignation of President Saakaashvili and his government.

On November 7 2007 when the protest actions at the building of Georgia's Parliament came to a head Georgia's government decided to break up the peace manifestation. For the crackdown of the action participants tear-gas, rubber bullets and hydro-jets were applied which was generally criticized by the world community. After the action was dispersed Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili stated that he would resign and assigned new presidential elections. The elections took place on January 5 2008 and according to Central Election Committee official data Mikhail Saakashvili was the winner. He became Georgia's President though the opposition called the elections fraudulent and later on the missions of international observers published the statements in which massive use of administrative resources in the course of election campaign, violations during the elections, intimidation of the population and pressure on representatives of the opposition by the party in power were reported.
