Thousands attended the ‘March of Georgians’ in Tbilisi, on Friday evening, which was called to protest against illegal immigrants in the country.
Many protesters waved the Georgian flag, while some held up signs including “Stop Migration, Go Home”, and “Identity Solidarity of USA, Poland, Hungary”. Christian religious imagery was also on display at the march.
One of the protest organisers, Former Georgian MP Sandro Bregadze, called for deportation of illegal immigrants from Georgia, saying, “We ask that citizens of other countries who are illegally in the territory of Georgia to be deported and that to close these ‘nests of debauchery’.”
Georgian journalist Zaza Davitaia was also among the organisors of the march that sought to denounce alleged “illegal actions” of immigrants living in the country.
