Civil activists from the opposition movement "Sirtskhvilia" ("It's a shame") are planning to hold another protest action in Tbilisi today.
The action will be a continuation of the rally "Home to Europe" in support of European integration but will be held under the slogan "Georgia without oligarchic governance!".
"On June 24, at 20:00, we are going to gather near the parliament on Rustaveli Avenue to fix our European choice and voice demands to the authorities," Sirtskhvilia said in an appeal distributed on social networks.
On June 23, the European Council in Brussels decided not to grant Georgia the status of an EU candidate in the next six months — until reforms are carried out.
The organizers of the action remind that one of the conditions presented to Georgia for obtaining the status is "de-oligarchizing".
Civil activists also refer to the resolution of the European Parliament of June 9, which expresses concern about the "destructive role" played by the "oligarch Bidzina Ivanishvili" in Georgian politics and economy.
This resolution of the European Parliament was called "unreasonable and unfair" by the leaders of the ruling Georgian Dream party — its founder, billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, is often reproached for behind-the-scenes management of the country.
The resolution of the European Parliament noted "his influence at the level of government and decision-making, including in connection with politically motivated persecution of opponents and journalists."
In addition, the resolution expresses "deep concern" about Ivanishvili's ties with the Kremlin.
Meanwhile, the Georgian Dream stated that they do not consider Ivanishvili an oligarch, since he announced his retirement from politics last year. They call the imprisoned ex-President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, several of his former associates, as well as current opposition leaders’ "oligarchs".
Before its action, Sirtskhvilia distributed an agitation video clip: it contains statements by representatives of the Georgian Dream, in which they condemn the resolution of the European Parliament, defend Ivanishvili, and talk about whether Georgia needs to join the EU on such conditions.
