Violent Demonstration Against Georgia's Parliament on Registering Foreign Influence

April 15, 2024 (EIRNS)—The attempt to repeat in the nation of Georgia what happened to Ukraine in 2014 is in full swing. Today, protesters assaulted police in an attempt to storm the parliament, and a lawmaker speaking in the legislature was violently punched in the face by an opposition lawmaker. The leader of the parliamentary majority Mamuka Mdinaradze was assaulted by the head of the “Citizens” party, Aleko Elisashvili.

The passions were aflame not over stopping war, feeding Gaza, or such matters. Mdinaradze was introducing a bill to require organizations that are funded from outside of Georgia to file a report of that fact. The requirement is not triggered until 20% of the organization’s funding is of foreign origin.
