Georgia’s youth are livid over the ‘overseas affect’ regulation handed by the parliament | DW News

The day after Georgia’s parliament passed the controversial "foreign influence law," protests continue. On Wednesday, some 30,000 people gathered in front of the parliament in the capital, Tbilisi, alone. The foreign ministers of Estonia, Iceland and Lithuania, who were visiting Georgia, also joined the protests. There were also demonstrations in the cities of Kutaisi and Zalendzhikha in the west of the country.

Young people in particular took to the streets to show their discontent. Georgia has officially been a candidate for EU membership since December. With the new law, however, a European future for the Caucasus country is hardly conceivable.
