Members of “Dare” movement are holding a protest at the Governmental Administration with the slogan “Struggle for life.” The activity began with observing a 1-minute silence in commemoration of Luka Siradze, a 15-year-old youth.
Protesters claim that the system is violent and has to be changed. They also demand the resignation of Minister of Internal Affairs and objective investigation into death case of the juvenile.
“We will put an end to this system. This is the first warning protest and we will not surrender in this struggle,” Nika Petriashvili, a participant of the activity claimed.
Participants of the protest made an inscription “Down with System” with ropes in front of the Governmental Administration and then set the phrase ablaze.
