Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 4 May.'09 / 12:45

Source: public TV

Opposition activists and their leaders resumed picketing of the public broadcaster from Monday morning, lasting till noon.

Central entrance of the broadcaster’s headquarters is blocked by live chain of opposition activists sending broadcaster’s employees to another entrance leading to the headquarters’ backyard. At the gates there another group of opposition activists are forming a so called “corridor of shame” through which broadcaster’s employees have to pass accompanied by opposition activists’ boos.

“Public TV news is very biased, which does not give the population to be well-informed about the ongoing developments in the country,” Nino Burjanadze, a former parliamentary speaker and leader of Democratic Movement-United Georgia opposition party, told journalists outside the public TV.

“You are working and receiving salary from taxpayers and you are obliged to be in service of the society,” Pikria Chikhradze of the New Rights Party, part of Alliance for Georgia, was telling a Public TV journalist, when the later told Chikhradze that picketers were impeding her to perform her duties.

When later the same journalist was reporting live from the scene during the public TV’s noon news bulletin, opposition activists from youth groups standing around the journalist starting honking horns and sticking anti-Saakashvili stickers on the journalist’s shoulders.
