Georgian media compared current regime with the 1937th year
Popular Georgian newspaper "Alia" was publish today with warning that the 1937th year has come to the country.
As VZGLYAD reported, the red line crosses out the word "2011" on page of the newspaper. Instead of it the edition is dated 1937. Such a step of the edition is related to a hint of the times of Soviet repression and suppression of free speech in connection with the detention of four Georgian photographers by authorities of the country, one of whom was worker of the holding "Alia."
Recall, the Georgian and the world community in recent days have repeatedly appealed to the official authorities of Georgia to make the process of arrest photographers "transparent" and fair, as well as declassify at least some of the facts of the case and make them public.
Note also, famous Georgian public, political and sports leaders have repeatedly said that the country's leadership is pursuing a policy comparable to the times of Joseph Stalin.
So, the captain of Georgia's national soccer team Kakha Kaladze said that the authorities oppress their citizens and have established Stalin's regime.
"The people of Georgia lives in poverty, there is selective justice, the plight of the prison system, civil society and NGOs virtually non-exist" - he said.
Soccer player has also said that Georgia now "is repeating 1937th year".
