Kirtadze: Georgia lost its chance for a revolution
International Secretary of the Georgian Labor Party Nestan Kirtadze is confident that the country has virtually lost a chance for a revolution.
As reported by the "GHN", Kirtadze stressed that Georgia needs time to secure democratic norms. "We have such a common clichй that brought the so-called "Rose Revolution" - You do not like the government? - You can overthrow it. This view has a right to exist theoretically, both morally and under international instruments, but in our country people no longer have such a right. Today we've got a different result, Georgia's population has no rights at all ... a chance to change government through revolution is lost..." - she said.
Laborist representative added that the huge problem, which prevents changing the current regime, is the passivity of the population. "But it has its reasons, which is called the reaction to the alienation, the weak hands, depression, well-known events of May 26, it is fear, of course (which has large eyes) which is associated with arrests and abuse of powers" - said Nestan Kirtadze.
Note, recently Kirtadze stood up for famous Georgian soccer player Kakha Kaladze, claiming that the Georgian authorities are confiscating his property - "Arsenal City". She suspects that an athlete was punished for his political views.
(12:42:56) Вадим Шаповалов: "This is another direct punishment, this time - of Kakha Kaladze, and an excuse to deprive him of 18 million. It all comes from the fact that the political views of a famous soccer player is not acceptable to those authorities. We again protest against the known expropriating policy carried out by authority and appeal to Mikhail Saakashvili: stop the Bolshevik practice and action in this country on election law as well as the division of Georgians into supporters and enemies" - says Kirtadze.
She urged the authorities of the country to resume the interrupted negotiations with Kaladze, and then to resume the process of investing 700 million lari, which, as the player intendeds, among other things, would secure to 25 thousand jobs. Implementation of this project was interrupted by the war of 2008 and force majeure.
"Presumably, this lawsuit, artificially created by the authorities because of different political views of soccer player, will be appealed to arbitration court in London, which, naturally, will be another difficult example for all those investors who had planned to invest in Georgia. The Labor Party fully supports the well-known soccer player and implementation of business initiatives of Kakha Kaladze in Georgia" - underlined Kirtadze.
