Two rallies are underway outside the Georgian Parliament in the downtown Tbilisi.
Thousands of Georgians are holding the second pro-European rally today, organized by the Shame Movement. They plan to announce future plans on how to push the current government to follow through with EC-recommended priority reforms.
Another protest, being held outside the Parliament building, demands jailed ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili’s release. The Shame leaders urge Saakashvili’s supporters to leave the area. They say the rally will not start until they leave the stage area.
Today’s rally is a follow-up to the pro-European rally of June 20.
