Another wave of riots unfolded in Tbilisi last night, catching Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili off guard.
The head of state had dinner at the Salobie Bia cafe on Ivan Machabeli Street, while a new color revolution unfolded nearby on Rustaveli Avenue. Oppositional informational resources learned about this. When information about the pastime of Zurabishvili spread, the protesters went to her and cordoned off the institution.
The president’s bodyguards blocked the entrances to the cafe, and about fifteen protesters lined the front of the building and began to chant “Slaves”. Some invited Zurabishvili «to pickles and dzhongzholi» [pickled vegetables]. In addition, the president was accused of indifference to the political crisis in the country. And everything that happened was covered by the staff of the infamous TV channel Rustavi2.
Ultimately, the security forces arrived in time to help the presidential guard. They put up a cordon at the entrance to the cafe, and Salome Zurabishvili hastily retreated from the scene, without any comments or statements.
As News Front previously reported, the pro-Western opposition of Georgia launched another protest after the ruling party failed to vote on the reform of the electoral system. The demonstrations have not stopped since mid-November. Yesterday, protesters once again stormed the Georgian parliament building. The action ended with the arrest of about two dozen radicals.
