Demonstrations in Tbilisi: "Georgian March" and counter protests of civil society activists

Group of ultranationalists marched along the Aghmashenebeli avenue in the center of Tbilisi on July 14. The protest was called “Georgian march”. The organizers of the Georgian March voiced their “official claim” to make immigration law stricter and to deport “illegal and criminal” migrants from Georgia. However, the statement disseminated by the organizers contained clearly xenophobic demands, like: “For the Georgian Georgia”. Representatives of the civil society, civil activists, human rights organizations actively protested the so-called March of the Georgians, the July 14 rally of the ultranationalists’ group in Tbilisi. 10 Aug 2017 »
