Citizens have gathered at the Georgian Parliament, marking November 7, 2007, an anti-government rally dispersal by riot police in the capital Tbilisi.
Singer Gia Gachechiladze (Ucnobi) called on the government to declare November 7 as a holiday of dignity.
Nana Kakabadze, Chair of Former Political Prisoners for Human Rights, said, “the United National Movement (UNM) and its founder Saakashvili seized the power on this spot.” “We should rebuff November 7, 2007, and its creators.”
Ia Metreveli, the mother of Buta Robakidze, a young man who was shot and killed in November 2004, added that “Rustaveli Avenue is a place where we fight for freedom, but Saakashvili bought a disaster on this place. UNM should be banned as a political party.”
