"Some of the other news stories. We're keeping an eye on today a US president. Donald trump has been invited to the first impeachment. Hearing on the fourth of December the Democratic Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Mr Trump could either attend or stop complaining about the process in Albania. An earthquake six point four magnitude the strongest to hit the country in decades has killed twenty people and uninjured six hundred more and Britain. The chief rabbi says the opposition Labour leader. Jeremy Corbyn is unfit to be prime minister. Because he's failed to stem anti-semitism Anti Semitism sanctioned from the top which is now gripping his party and not the top story of this program. That's been unrest in Georgia for some time time earlier in the year citizens rallied against Russian influence in the country. Relations between Georgia and Russia have long been fractured over. Tbilisi's efforts to join the European Union Indian and NATO then last week Georgia's ruling party backtracked on promised electoral reforms and now thousands of people have gathered into Boise waving waving national and EU flags and demanding that the government resign. Well George W Gary who is a civic activist and the director of Tbilisi Pride is on the line from from the city Judy thanks for joining us. Can you give us some above ground to these protests. Hi thanks for having me Well basically the. The protests started the earlier in June Last summer when a I mean considering the relationship that Georgia has are not having with Russia basically. We don't have diplomatic relations at the moment it's mediated to which Switzerland and We had the Russian MP who previously was involved like Anti anti-georgian actions Gavrilov sitting in the on the seats off Georgian parliament any calls the public outrage Emma among social movements and the political mccollough groups as well so basically we start that we went out to the streets in June and It's a sort of ended up. Government making making certain promises and one of those achievements and the major promise was to switch on fully proportional electoral system for the general elections on twenty twenty and over the over the protests which lost it for one hundred days government has been ready to rating that detroiters. The promise would be delivered. They they were saying this on the highest level tribals like the UN or the Council of Europe European Union. But at the end it went down to the voting didn't pass Haas in the Georgian parliament And it caused a gain in other way of protest. which is now happening and continues again? NBC So why is the Georgian Dream Party so reluctant reluctant to implement these reforms. Is it not going through parliament While it's a seventh year now since Since Georgian dream government came into power and the Basically as it happens in in many many countries You know the second term is often quite turbulent and this is what's happening with Georgian dream as well Recently we had an IRA polls and also the National Democratic Institute which they do it. Like occasionally and The ratings and trust towards Georgian dream is really down so they realized that they are not going to win elections for for twenty twenty And we did with the majority in parliament so I think they are just trying to Use whatever methods they can Get a get away with To to ensure short day stay in power but I hope it's not GonNa get dangerous because I mean so far. I mean a lot of activities have been detained into pastas government has been using what's her canyons and force And I hope he's just going to stay within the frame of democratic response and who they using cannons on WHO's protesting. What's the demographic out out on the streets? I wouldn't speak on the numbers because I mean there has been some There has been in the thousands of people. Probably today's ago which was which was the main protests there were up to fifteen to twenty thousand people on Seventy Avenue the same. What's happening on the every bigger demonstration? That was there but the more important is that what's Pretty much entire social movements and almost the entire political spectrum united Against Government at this point point. I don't recall the similar unity. especially with a very divert with a very diverse political standpoint from from the political parties and now L. Literally pro-western are pro Russian. Political groups are together trying to negotiate something with the government or trying to convince the government that they should This is the time to actually Now give up on this end johnny proportional electoral system or owning an early elections as well. And you say say pro Russian. Is that much Russian influence to be seen in this protest movement Well it's very hard to say these days because the Russian influence is everywhere worry has been in the US elections it's eighteen. They are involved in every major election. That's happening in the sphere of interest. Russia So Georgia he's obviously as a former Soviet Union country twenty percents off Georgian territories are occupied by Russia and I mean they always try to keep control. What's happening in Georgia? The the government itself the Georgian dream government has been cozying up with Russia ever since they are in power Actually eventually himself was the richest man and the most influential sleman. The country has has sort of got reach In Russia Ninety s and the current prime minister the former Russian citizen up until two thousand thirteen gene when they came into power so as you can say they're lot of from sort of Russian affiliated political figures who are currently currently holding holding power Georgia and these obviously changes the political discourse in the country as well. I wonder how how Liberal Society it is there. I mean in terms of the Russian infants but but just also for instance your own organization a Georgian pride. How much freedom to ordinary citizens have to express themselves? Well I mean that that's a different Issue because basically Jordan has been I mean since the previous government has been Moving forward to you integration process and we have implemented a lot of You a loss and we have harmonized our legislation to who some degrees we the European Union and actually human rights has been be part of it because Georgia switched onto visa-free travel with the European Union in the past year and end For that we had to adopt certain laws like anti-discrimination legislation for instance. Now Georgia's doing better off than some of the member states when when it comes to the rights of LGBTQ. I people We have better loss than Poland Lithuania. Latvia Italy Greece but when it comes to the social attitudes it doesn't really translate into into that it's more of a top down approach when the government is trying to Adopt laws. But then it takes time to actually implement end. Put put into the heads off The society so this is the process that we have been going through in the Pasta fifteen years pretty much when a lot of pro Western Era that the laws have been sort of implemented and now we are in the process of Accommodating this into our system of understanding Um but as you say all of these various diverse groups are out on the streets protesting at the moment. Can you tell us what's going on today in terms of The the authorities reaction and if people are still out there Well people know we had. We had protests yesterday and the group decided parliament decided not to work today today So basically the everything. The protest the whole idea behind The opposition parties were trying to blockade the entrance of the parliament so not not to allow basically the the MP's from the current government to enter. Continue work as if nothing happened And well that's that's why they're water Kenyon. The Kenyans have been used initially basically to free the entrance of the parliament and to to get rid of the tents which were on Rustaveli Avenue so at the moment and today nothing is happening but he will be back on Thursday And then the blockade of parliament they also do the shame corridors for For them peace it because the entire idea behind blocking the parliament is that those were the Georgia currently has the mic system majoritarian proportional and the majoritarian Where elected in particular districts who blocked the noticed reach on the proportional electoral system? So they naturally we get a anger and disappointment from the public. And that's why the parliamentary sort of a space. For All these things happened and And and it's under under the attack now also the peaceful peaceful protests off of the opposition groups and finally told you. Where do you you think this will go next? I don't know to be honest. This is a very Nobody nobody really knows Because it's really hard to. I predict what's going to happen at this point From what I see there is not much capacity left ear within the government to get through this crisis because this has been the the the Really major crisis ever since they are in power. I don't remember a unity off of the opposition parties to that scale end. Also there. There has been the internal dissolution happening within the Georgian Dream Party pro-western a political leaders have left the party after the propounded wounded. The bill was voted in the parliament. and this looks like the beginning of an to me but clearly a when you have the richest person person in power. That might go wrong way as well and I do hope. So that a he will be smart enough to take a democratic path and and exit from this in a peaceful way because otherwise it might end as a as a new crying Yaakov. HR In many other countries were sort of semi-authoritarian regimes. I have been overthrown. I hope it's not going to happen in Georgia this time. Joe Thanks very much indeed. That's Georgie to Gary there Venezuelan takes over as president of the European Union's Executive Commission on December. The first climate change is one of the top issues. She plans to address. She'll lay out details of a European green deal to make the EU the world's first climate neutral continent by twenty fifty. Dr McCaffrey Urine use. Brussels correspondent is on the line to tell us how Brussels is reacting Vonda lands plans. Don She wants to deliver her green deal within one hundred days of taking office. What exactly she proposing on climate change will ultimately has made climate? Change One of her at Prophecies Regina not least of all because actually what we've seen in the European election back in May elections in several parts also of Western Europe is somewhat of a green surge with green parties doing particularly well and it is clear that at least again in western Europe this issue of the involvement is becoming a number one concern for many though too so her idea in this green deal is to try and get as you say the EU Koba neutral by twenty. Ah Fifty it must be. Most countries are on board. There are three that are not include Poland Hungary and the Czech Republic. And that's because they've got concerns about their industries for example. Poland still has a large at coal mining industry employs tens of thousands of people. And they they want to know what will happen to these people..
