The activists protested with "demand to stop attempt to revive fascist ideas, destruction of monuments to the people killed in the Great Patriotic War, and re-writing history," ht message of the organisation says.

Passers-by were proposed to sign address to the President of Georgia. People could also express their point of view.

"Blasting the monuments to fighters against fascism, the authorities of Georgia try to ruin the memory about heroic past of our fathers, and oppose the whole civilized world that condemned fascism," the movement leader Andrey Pinchuk said.

On December 19th the Memorial was blasted by Sakpetkmrtsevi [Gruzvryvprom] commercial company, on the request of Kutaisi Mayor's Office. The debris fell in the yard of one house, killed a child and her mother, wounded several people.
