The eight-party opposition coalition has called for a large-scale protest rally outside Parliament at 6pm local time on March 16. There were up to 60 hunger strikers camped outside Parliament as of March 13, according to opposition leaders. March 14 marked the sixth day in a hunger strike for five coalition politicians - three of whom are MPs. Others have been refusing food for four and for some fifth days. Six lawmakers from the New Rights Party camped just outside Parliamentary Chairperson Nino Burjanadze’s office inside Parliament are on their fifth day of hunger strike (MP Irakli Iashvili joined his colleagues from the New Rights Party on March 13).
