On Saturday, more than 200 thousand people were present in Europe Square in the capital of Georgia at the top.

More than 200 thousand people could take part in a protest against the government demanding the removal of the law on “foreign agents” in Tbilisi on Saturday. The News-Georgia reported this on Sunday, May 12.

“The pro-European rally demanding the removal of the law on ‘foreign agents’, which took place in Tbilisi on May 11, became the largest demonstration in Georgia’s modern history,” the report said.

Citing fact-checkers from the Visioner team, it was noted that the protest against the government “was attended by at least 200 thousand people, but the total for the day was probably closer to 300 thousand.”

According to calculations using the Mapchecking platform, 200.1 thousand people were present in Europe Square in the capital of Georgia at the top. Groups of protesters held marches there from various locations in central Tbilisi.

The last part of the event is a concert. Famous performers performed on a small stage.

Participants in the protest against the law on “foreign agents” announced that they will spend the night outside the Georgian parliament on the eve of the start of consideration of the controversial initiative in the third final reading on the morning of May 13. Protesters are encouraged to bring raincoats, power banks and other items that may be needed for the picket.

As you know, on May 1, the Georgian parliament adopted in the second reading the bill on the transparency of foreign influence – “foreign agents”. The final third reading of the bill will be considered on May 13.

Protests against this bill have been taking place in Georgia since April. Protesters say they will not allow changes to the country’s pro-European course.

They beat themselves: the Georgian Minister of Justice made a statement about the protesters
