On Sunday, a rally "Together to Europe" organized by the opposition United National Movement took place in front of the Georgian parliament, reports Radio Liberty's Echo of the Caucasus project.
The participants of the rally spoke in favor of Georgia's European future, demanded the resignation of the government and the release of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, a citizen of Ukraine, Niki Gvaramia (one of the founders and director of the Mtavari Arch TV company), and Lazare Grigoriadis (an activist).
The leader of the United National Movement party, Levan Khabeishvili, voiced four demands to the government: the release of Grigoriadis, the second - the immediate resignation of judges who are subject to sanctions, the third - the release of Saakashvili and Gvaramia, and the fourth - a law on de-oligarchization, judicial reform and reform of the Central Election Commission.
The rally ended with the anthems of Georgia, Ukraine and the European Union. There were no reports of violations.
The authorities had earlier called the April 9 rally "immoral impudence."
