Relatives of the mariners captured on September 8 last year gathered in front of the Constitutional Court building in Batumi, where Mikheil Saakashvili was expected to arrive.

However, he did not and the sailors' relatives went on with their action in front of the government house where they had a meeting with head of government of the Autonomous Republic of Adzharia Levan Varshalomidze.

"I'm telling you that if one could get anywhere just by standing in the street, I would join you. We are all involved in this process", - Varshalomidze said and invited the participants of the action to his office.
According to the authorities, possible ways of saving the mariners are still being negotiated.

The Solidarity Foundation established on November 18 by the amalgamated trade unions has raised 60 thousand laris. Members of the organization believe that the government is lacking activity. Deputy Chairman of amalgamated trade unions Eteri Matureli reminded of an article in the Georgian Constitution obliging the state to protect its citizens regardless of their location.
