2013-05-17 14:44

Protesters "in defense of morality" have appeared at the Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi, where a gay pride parade is planned. Representatives of several non-governmental organizations, the clergy and congregation have gathered outside the parliament building, the reports.


The action also involves a former priest Vasily (Basil) Mkalavishvili who has spent four years in prison on charges of violence against religious minorities and his supporters who are carrying a nettle. This plant, according to them, is necessary to "scare gays and lesbians."

Meanwhile, the opponents of gay pride parade have managed to break through the police cordon.

Currently, as reported by the Interfax, in the center of the Georgian capital there have gathered about 10 thousand Orthodox citizens trying to prevent the action in support of sexual minorities.

Several dozen representatives of sexual minorities have gathered at the Liberty Square, but the Orthodox citizens broke through police cordons and tried to physically abuse members of the gay pride parade.

At the same time, the Parliament Speaker of Georgia David Usupashvili stated today that "the Constitution provided for freedom of religion and opinion, and no one has the right to go beyond the scope of the Constitution and the law."
