“Georgia has been fighting for human rights for over a hundred years. There are some, who apparently want to use violence to prevent Georgian citizens from exercising their fundamental freedoms of expression and assembly,” said US Ambassador Kelly Degnan echoing Tbilisi Pride Week.
According to the US Ambassador, people in a democratic country have the right to express their stands freely.
“This creates a serious problem for the law enforcement agencies that have a responsibility to ensure that Georgian citizens can exercise these fundamental freedoms of assembly and expression. I’m hoping that will be able to happen in a peaceful environment, without the use of violence to prevent people from exercising of human rights, their basic freedoms at all,” the Ambassador said.
