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.

Fierce, independent journalism

Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim. Every day we are accused of ‘serving the enemy’ whoever that enemy may be. Our journalists have been harassed, arrested, beaten, and exiled. But nevertheless, we persevere. For us this is a labour of love. Unfortunately, we cannot run OC Media on love alone, journalism is expensive and funding is scarce. Our sole mission is to serve the interests of all peoples of the region. You can support us today for as little as $1 a month and join us in the fight for a better Caucasus.
