TBILISI, DFWatch–The National Movement is planning a series of anti-Putin demonstrations in several cities and towns, but first wants to meet with the people.

The party’s spokesperson Andro Barnovi said on Monday that the government is passive as the Winter Sochi Olympics is approaching.

“Already in March we might expect Putin to start a new wave of pressure on us in order to make us refuse the European choice and return to the kingdom of Putin,” he said, adding that many European leaders are boycotting the Olympics, while the Georgian government remains silent.

“Civic activism is a way out. I want to call on people to stand together for our future and show the world, including the occupant, aggressor, that we may be mistaken in electing a government but we cannot make a mistake about the country’s European choice,” Barnovi said.

Two weeks ago, UNM demonstrated in Tbilisi against the suspension of the city’s mayor pending a trial for corruption and announced that it would hold a series of rallies after the holidays.
