Symbolic "funeral" of Saakashvili

2013-01-17 18:59

In the city of Zugdidi, western Georgia, there was staged a theatricalized action with a demand of resignation of president Mikheil Saakashvili, the Voice of Russia reported.


The action involved, according to various estimates, from 1 to 2 thousand people - residents of Zugdidi and the surrounding towns and districts. Speakers have criticized Saakashvili's policy and urged him to resign.

Protesters have also staged symbolic "political funeral of the president", having carried empty tomb through the central square. "Thus we express our protest. Saakashvili has done so much bad for Georgia, so we have decided to symbolically bury him", said the protesters.

Recall, in early January that Georgian NGOs, standing for early resignation of president Mikheil Saakashvili, collected million signatures in support of this claim.

Though, it is unclear how the authenticity of the signatures, available to the organizers of the campaign, can be confirmed.

The representatives of NGOs, collecting signatures, have held a meeting outside the presidential residence in Tbilisi. They intended to hand the presidential administration a memorandum demanding Saakashvili's resignation, but none of the administration staff has come out to them.
