The Alliance of Patriots opposition party is calling for a protest outside the US Embassy in Tbilisi on Sunday, September 15, to demand that former US Assistant Secretary of State David Kramer be banned from visiting Georgia. Protesters are expected to gather at 16:00 (local time).
Significant transportation and business disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest. A heightened security presence is anticipated, the use of force by police officers remains possible. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
The protest comes after a conference held in Tbilisi on September 10, during which Kramer allegedly shouted at the leader of the Alliance of Patriots party, Irma Inashvili.
Individuals in Tbilisi are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities
