2013-05-16 12:23

Yesterday in Zugdidi, 20 internally displaced persons declared a hunger strike in the building of the IDPs Department of Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti. They demand a meeting with the Minister for Refugees and Accommodation of Georgia David Darakhvelidze, the Echo of the Caucasus reported.


They are not going to stop the hunger until the Minister meets with them personally and pays attention to their problems. According to the protesters, about two days ago, the Minister visited the region, but met with only a "selected families."

As recalled by the Caucasian Knot, on January 4, refugees living in the former polytechnic college in Zugdidi held a protest. They demanded to cancel the order for their eviction and blocked the road.

Refugees in Georgia have repeatedly complained about the living conditions. In August 2010, Amnesty International criticized the Georgian government for failing to provide decent living conditions for the IDPs from Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
