As reported to Interfax by the president's State Counsellor Zhanna Zasseeva, an action called A Band of Feat is being held in South Ossetia on November 21-23: the citizens are given the bands with the Ossetian tricolored flag. Lessons of Feat are organized in all the schools and an exhibition of creative works dedicated to the heroic resistance is held in the Exhibition Hall in Tskhinval.
"A nationwide minute of glory and feat is to be held on November 23 at 12.00 p.m. A meeting will take place at the city gateway where common Ossetian young men blocked the way of the Georgian members of unofficial organizations 20 years ago. A memorial plaque and a memorial to the young men who defended Tskhinval will be fixed up here", - Zasseeva reported.
The events will end up in a gala concert and a firework.
As reported earlier by Georgia Times, tomorrow Georgia will be celebrating the day of Giorgoba and the 6th anniversary of the Rose Revolution. The Mayor's Office of Tbilisi prohibited any anti-governmental events on this day, so the protests actions were postponed by initiators until December 10.
