Saakashvili launched a war on oppositionists’ children2010-08-19 13:29
According to one of the leaders of the oppositional United Georgia Democratic Movement Nino Burjanadze, her son and the whole of his class received no certificate of appreciation for good performance at school. Bringing an insignificant fact like that before the court of public opinion could be attributed to the excessive concern of a loving mother if it were not for a small detail. According to Burjanadze, the schoolteachers council explained the decision by the "excessive opposition-mindedness" of the class despite its high efficiency.
Persecution of the opposition in Georgia is no longer a top secret. The official Tbilisi descends both to deceitful rhetoric in respect of its political opponents and to forcible break-up of demonstrations. And now the fight with those disapproving of the methods used by Mikheil Saakashvili to lead the country to the "cloudless democratic future" has acquired an unexpected character.
It is notable that yesterday, on August 16, Georgian president tried to position himself as a person taking great care of children. Together with his Moldavian counterpart Mihai Ghimpu Saakashvili visited a youth camp at the climatic health resort of Anaklia. During the meeting with teenagers from Moldavia and Byelorussia, another country that has joined the "anti-Russianism" contest, the Georgian leader dwelled upon the necessity of treating all people equally well regardless of their citizenship and political views. "I have always said that if you do not like Armenians, I will be an Armenian for you; if you hate Russians, I will be a Russian and if you feel no affection for Azerbaijani I am sure to become the one for you. But at the same time, I will remain the biggest Georgian because one cannot divide people on the basis of their skin color or other criteria", - Saakashvili underlined. It is interesting that such statements were made by a person who was careful to remove the slightest hints at the possible building of a tolerant and free society in Georgia.
