Georgia’s opposition is planning a series of mass rallies in the country’s capital of Tbilisi. (2:27):

Thousands of people are expected to join rallies calling on President Mikheil Saakashvili to stand down.

Protesters say he provoked the war with Russia last year and that there is “no democracy” in the country.

Police used rubber bullets and tear gas to break up the last mass protests in the capital, Tblisi, in November 2007.

Mr Saakashvilli’s critics say he is to blame for the country’s current situation and should resign. >>>
