Citizens began to take to the streets of Tbilisi demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili after the death of the operator of the Pirveli TV channel, beaten by opponents of the LGBT community.

According to TASS , politicians, civic activists and not indifferent people gathered at the office of the ruling party "Georgian Dream - Democratic Georgia". They try to enter the building to talk to the authorities, but the law enforcers will not let them. Clashes broke out between the protesters and the police. It is already known about several victims. No arrests have been reported yet.

RIA Novosti clarifies that the heads of the Georgian TV companies also demand the resignation of the prime minister. Let's remind that today it became known about the death of Lekso Lashkarav, the operator of TV Pirveli. His mother found him dead in his own home. Previously, he was hospitalized after he was beaten during an action by supporters of the LGBT community.

On July 5, in the Georgian capital, 47 media representatives were injured during protests staged by opponents of the LGBT march. Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili visited the injured journalists in one of the Tbilisi clinics and said that what happened in the Georgian capital was unacceptable.

Today, July 11, oppositionist Elena Khoshtaria doused the government's office building with red in protest.
