Thousands of protesters clashed with police Thursday evening after an opposition faction attempted to take over Georgia’s Old Parliament building where a General Assembly of the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy had taken place earlier in the day.
Thursday evening, protesters began gathering en masse near the Old Parliament building on Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi. The opposition called for the resignation of Georgian Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia and the head of the Parliament, Irakli Kobakhidze. The radical activists attempted to storm the Parliament building, prompting police to introduce crowd control measures.
