Conservatives demand a memorial outside Parliament

Members of the Conservative Party have demanded that a memorial to the Georgian soldiers and civilians who died during the Russian invasion this August be erected outside Parliament.They say that a memorial is appropriate at that particular site because 20 protestors who were killed on April 9, 1989 are already commemorated there and cadets, killed in 1921 during Bolshevik invasion are buried under the Parliament building. The Conservatives assert that all these historic tragedies were the result of Russian occupation.

The Movement for United Georgia joined the Conservatives in expressing this demand. A memorial service for the souls of those who died in the recent war has been conducted in Kashveti Church.
