Three Days of Protest For our Freedom: IN PICTURES

Thousands of people gathered in front of the Georgian parliament building in Tbilisi on May 12 to protest an overnight antidrug raid by police on two popular nightclubs in the capital.

The raids drew criticism for what some called an excessive use of police force against clubgoers. Gakharia met with protest leaders during a rally in front of Tbilisi’s parliament building on Sunday evening and has apologised over police raids on two popular nightclubs in Tbilisi.
