Gonio residents rally demanding land ownership

Families living in Gonio of Adjara region of Georgia are holding a protest rally in front of the Ministry of Finance and Economy of Adjara demanding their land plots registration.

According to the protesters, they were given possession of these land plots in 2007 but dispossessed them in 2010. Since then, some have been able to register homestead plots, while others keep protesting.

The rally participants say the Ministry of Finance and Economy of Adjara hinders the transfer of land ownership; therefore, protesters demand a meeting with the Minister and threaten to block up the road. Law enforcers are mobilized on the spot.
