Opposition refused to unblock Tbilisian highways2009-05-22 17:49
Opposition will not stop protest actions with the demand of Mikheil Saakashvili's resignation, and will unblock traffic on Liberty Square, Rustaveli Avenue and the square in front of the Parliament when they consider needed, said Irakli Melashvili, one of the National Forum party leaders - ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
He arrived at the Liberty Square, where a fight between opposition supporters and taxi drivers occurred today. Representatives of other opposition parties stated that "from time to time the authorities try to provoke separate groups of citizens for restoration of traffic". Let us remind that today at the noon taxi drivers of Tbilisi gathered in Rike Square and marched to Liberty Square in a column.
They demanded to open the roads, currently being blocked with mock prison cells. Shouting sharp accusations addressed to the opposition, turned one cell over, and after that the fight between taxi drivers and activists began.
Drivers accused opposition supporters of starting a fight; opposition, vice versa, accuses taxi drivers. "We work from morning till evening to bring home some money, and because of the blocked roads terrible traffic jams are all around the city. How long do we have to bear it?" one of the drivers stated indignantly.
