A march passed in Tbilisi No to Russian fascism

A rally “No to Russian fascism!” Was held in Tbilisi

“No to Russian fascism!” - under such a slogan hundreds of people marched along Agmashenebeli Avenue in the center of Tbilisi on Sunday. The rally organized by the “Movement for Freedom - European Georgia” party was attempted to resist by the participants of the “counter-action” gathered on the same avenue.
The avenue of the capital, popular among tourists, was chosen as the venue for the march of European Georgia, where on July 14 the nationalist March of Georgians was held demanding a tightening of immigration policies and the expulsion of illegal immigrants from Georgia.
According to representatives of “European Georgia”, their march was a response to this march and a demonstration that Georgia is a tolerant country, where there is no place for fascism and xenophobia, manifested on the march and, in their opinion, artificially imposed from Russia.
"With this action we say - not to fascism, which, unfortunately,It was demonstrated on this street a few days ago, when one rather marginal, but still xenophobic-minded group expressed an absolutely unacceptable position that contradicts Georgian values. This action is against them, as well as against the authorities, who are doing everything to ensure that such groups exist, ”one of the party’s leaders Sergi Kapanadze told BBC.
The procession on both sides of the road was accompanied by police.
The situation escalated when the marchers reached the place where the participants of the opposing action gathered, threatening not to allow the leaders of “European Georgia” to hold a march.
Eggs and plastic bottles
The participants of the second action declared that the leaders of “European Georgia” - representatives of the previous authorities - do not have the moral right to hold a march in the center of Tbilisi, since they are responsible for the hardest human rights violations under the previous government.
Announcing the holding of a "counter-action", the organizers and participants of the Georgian March declared that they were ready for the authorities to disperse them.
However, shortly before the beginning of the march, a part of the organizers of the “Georgian March” declaredthat she refuses to hold it and called on the participants to disperse, explaining that to the position of the Georgian patriarch.
On Sunday, the Georgian Patriarchate issued a statement in which it urged the organizers to refrain from holding both actions in order to avoid "unintended consequences."
Despite this, some participants in the "counter-action" decided to stay on the avenue and meet the procession.
The police enclosed them with a cordon, preventing them from approaching the marchers, but plastic bottles, eggs and tomatoes flew into the participants of the march through the police, accompanied by obscene curses. According to police, two people suffered minor injuries.
Despite this, after a brief confusion, the procession of “European Georgia” continued, ending at the Mardzhanishishvili metro station.
