Revolution!
    #2128948 - 11/22/03 11:52 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

"Opposition supporters in Georgia have seized the parliament building in the capital Tbilisi after weeks of protests over disputed elections.

Hundreds of opposition supporters drove Mr Shevardnadze's supporters from parliament under a hail of books and pens after a number of fist-fights

The BBC's Damian Grammaticas, from the scene, says this marks the total collapse of Georgia's government. The country's armed forces, who live on tiny salaries, are not intervening. "



This is very cool because it was looking like things could get very nasty. Basically President Shevardnadze rigged the elections and refused to stand down in the face of popular outcry. He is still refusing to resign but now no-one is listening to him  :lol:

According to BBC, Shevardnadze has resigned. It appears that the army refused to support him.

The good news is that a corrupt government is falling without bloodshed so far. Let's hope they can manage to keep the deaths to a minimum.

Happy mushrooming!
