Opposition to rally on Independence Day

Gamkrelidze announced a rally at the Sports Palace on Monday, while a military parade is marching in the center of the capital just a few kilometers away.

This is dangerous. It could be the moment the opposition goes for broke.

Just spoke with MP Kakha Kukava, a leading United Opposition member who was just barely reelected parliament in an election the opposition say was rigged:

He says they are calling on all opposition parties to join them with their supporters. What they do at that rally -- whether they march toward Rustaveli Avenue, parliament and the military parade -- depends on what demonstrators decide.

Only organizing the rally is not enough; they need thousands of supporters to change the situation. Without that support, Kukava says, they cannot take this to "the end of the story."

Georgian opposition needs to be educated on the principals of democracy! Opposition believes that democracy is valid only and only if they win otherwise it should be revolution!
