Tens of thousands of demonstrators began a rally on Thursday outside Georgia's parliament in Tbilisi, demanding President Mikheil Saakashvili's resignation.
Saakashvili's popularity has plummeted since last August's disastrous war with Russia, and his failure to carry out the democratic reforms promised after the 2003 "Rose Revolution" that brought him to power.
Reporters in Tbilisi estimate that a total of 100,000 people have so far joined the rally...
The people of Georgia are furious with Sakashvili and his criminal regime, not only did he start and lose a humiliating war in South Ossetia in which many people suffered needlessly, he is seen as an all out failure and a puppet of the West and the International Banking Cartel.
Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital, calling for the resignation of their country’s president.
Opposition leaders, who expect 100,000 people to take part in the action, say they will carry on protesting until Mikheil Saakashvili, the president, resigns.
At least 50,000 demonstrators gathered outside parliament on Thursday afternoon, waving opposition flags and chanting “resign”.
“We have no other way out but to stand here until the end, until the Judas of Georgian politics resigns,” Levan Gachechiladze, opposition leader and former presidential candidate, told the crowd.
Shota Utiashvili, a Georgian interior ministry spokesman, told Al Jazeera the police would not be taking heavy action against protesters.
