Gurjaani residents affected by disaster held protest

2013-01-17 12:00

Residents of the Georgian town of Gurjaani, affected by the disaster in the summer of 2012, have held a protest demanding payment of the previously promised compensation, the Caucasian Knot reported.


On July 19, last year, Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili stated the members of the government should consider the issue of compensation to the families whose agricultural land had been affected by the strong winds and hail.

However, the participants of the action said they have not received the promised compensation. The protesters tried to block traffic. After the intervention of the police they refused these intentions.

According to the participants of the protest, they cannot proceed with the spring sowing due to problems in obtaining compensation.

As recalled by the Rosbalt, in the night of July 19, heavy rain, hail and hurricane damaged houses and destroyed crops in the Kakheti region (Eastern Georgia). The disaster, according to preliminary data, destroyed 80 to 100% of the yield on the 11 thousand hectares.
