Video | Georgia's failed electoral reform - Explained

22 November 2019

Thousands have taken to the streets in Georgia to protest failed electoral reforms. The Georgian government has deployed riot police and used tear gas against demonstrators, who together with an opposition coalition blocked the entrances to the Georgian Parliament. Thirty-seven people were arrested following the dispersal on 18 November.

OC Media explains why the reforms are so important for so many Georgians and why the ruling party changed their minds in fulfilling this promise.

Right now, online media in Georgia is in dire need of safety equipment, legal support, and technology as we cover increasingly challenging circumstances. Support small, independent media outlets in Georgia via our collective fundraiser.
