Protesters shut their mouths with pieces of cloth and brought placards with inscription "Give speech freedom!"

They protested against restraints of the freedom of speech, and also against the non-issuing satellite broadcasting license to Maestro company.

Georgia Gachechiladze, the singer aka Utsnobi, also participated and claimed that in the 21st century demanding a licence for satellite broadcasting is ridiculous, because it's merely not needed.

The issue of granting Maestro the license must have been considered last week, but the Commission adjourned the meeting due to the absence of quorum. In response journalists and opposition threatened with permanent protest actions near the Commission's office.
