Several thousand protesters reconvened outside the Parliament for fourteenth day of protests, joined later on April 22 with opposition supporters and activists.
Motorcades of several hundreds of cars, honking horns, arrived in the capital city from western and eastern regions of the country on Wednesday evening.
Niko Orvelashvili of the National Forum party, which organized mobilization of supporters in the eastern region of Kakheti, said that those who have arrived from the regions would remain in Tbilisi for about a week and would be deployed in improvised cells set up on the Rustaveli Avenue and Freedom Square.
Levan Gachechiladze, an opposition politician and one of the leading figures at the rallies, told protesters that the opposition planned “town of cells” outside the public TV from April 23, similar to the one which was set up on Freedom Square and part of Rustaveli Avenue on April 21. Currently, there are several improvised cells at a sidewalk outside the public TV without blocking traffic.
Eka Beselia of the Movement for United Georgia party told the rally that from April 23 the opposition would launch “picketing” of public TV and the State Chancellery [PM’s office close to the Parliament]; as well as of the entire perimeter of the Parliament.”
“Our campaign will end very soon, in several days with your victory,” she told protesters. “This is a decisive moment for Georgia and it is a duty of each citizen to stand here beside you.
