As reported by Trend, the picket was organized by Resistance Movement. One of the organization leaders Soso Mandzhavidze underlined that in today's conditions, when the country's authorities descend to repressing the people, only such actions may prevent Georgia's transformation into a police-ridden state.
"We all could see the results of the people's passivity; it led to the lawlessness of Saakashvili's regime and the deaths of certain people. Passivity of the society accelerated the realization of his destructive policy. One can't stand it any more. Inactivity is the same as treachery here. We started acting so as to destroy the fear sown by the government among the people. We will stop the reprisals and release the people who were illegally put to prison. Our duty is to stop the terror and start dismantling the regime", - he added.
Earlier, representatives of the opposition demanded holding mass amnesty in Georgia. According to spokesman of NGO Former Political Prisoners for Human Rights Gela Nikoleishvili, 24 thousand people are kept prisoners in Georgia. According to the social poll conducted by Institute of Public Opinion and Marketing on the order of the International Republical Institute in 2009, only 42 percent of the country's population trust the courts.
"We can see a number of problems here: the privileged status of the prosecutor's office, the absence of control over the judges' activity, the combination of the elite with the law-enforcement and legal agencies, political orders", - Nikoleishvili remarked.
