Rally staged outside Tbilisi’s Turkish embassy despite Municipality ban

PanARMENIAN.Net - Despite recommendation of Tbilisi’s Municipality and the statement of Georgia’s Armenian community on shifting the venue for the annual April 24 rally from outside the Turkish embassy to the territory adjacent to the church of St. Echmiadzin, a group of protesters still staged a rally outside the embassy to express their constitutional right.

Earlier, Georgia’s Armenian community issued a statement saying, “considering the complicated situation in the country and the region, as well as the stance, request and concern of the Georgian authorities, the community resolved to abstain from holding a traditional April 24 rally outside the Turkish embassy. This year, by way of exception, the event will be held at the territory adjacent to the church of St. Echmiadzin.”
