Messages of Support After Tblisi Pride Stops


Euronews Channel reports that organisers of the proposed Pride March in the Georgian capital, Tblisi, have cancelled the event after threats and intimidation from Nazi and orthodox religious groups, coupled with an apparent indifference from the supposedly impartial and secular authorities. Journalists have also been attacked and have had film equipment broken, demonstrating just how far the anti-gay thugs are prepared to go to disrupt the Pride parade. The offices of an LGBTQ civil rights group was broken into and ransacked on Monday. With the authorities saying that they could not guarantee the safety of march participants, the organisers said that they had little option other than the cancel the parade. Messages of support and solidarity can be tweeted to them at Tblisi Pride. Some people have suggested that the Georgian state security services have been supportive, if not behind the far right wing attacks and one woman blogged that it is important to note that their activities do not represent the majority of law abiding and peaceful Georgian citizens.
