‘New Type of Opposition Movement’ Planned
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 21 Oct.'08 / 19:06

Some opposition parties are planning to launch “a new type of opposition movement,” which will lead “a new wave of protest” starting from November 7, Pikria Chikhradze of the New Rights Party said on October 21.   

“We, the New Rights, our partner political organizations and our supporters from civil society, plan, starting from November 7, to offer the public a new type of opposition movement, which will be able to cope with the threats existing inside the country, as well those coming from outside, such as Russian aggression,” Chikhradze said at a press conference. “We plan to do it in close cooperation with international organizations, the representatives of the international community.”

She did not, however, go into the details.

“I will speak about it when the time comes,” she said. “I do not plan to speak about it in advance, but this wave and this movement will be launched.”

Levan Gachechiladze, a former opposition presidential candidate, called on supporters to rally on November 7 outside Parliament to mark the one year anniversary of the riot police break-up of an opposition demonstration. The New Rights Party said it would join the rally.

“The November 7 rally will be absolutely peaceful,” Chikhradze said. “Last November 7 was a day of violence committed by the authorities against its own people. From now on, November 7 will be a day of protest against all violence.”
