Protests against the government resume in Tbilisi

A rally by thousands of protesters demanding the resignation of Georgia's government ended in the early hours of the morning on June 2, but organizers said the demonstration would resume later in the evening, RFE/RL reports.

Zaza Saralidze, leader of the rally which started out on May 31 as a mass protest against the verdict in the trial of two young men suspected of murdering his teenage son, said he would stay overnight in a tent encampment erected in front of Tbilisi's old parliament building.

He said demonstrators will not relent on their demands for a new government despite efforts by Georgian President Georgi Margvelashvili and Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili to address the protesters' demands for reforms in the justice system.
