Georgians Rally Against Saakashvili

While I admire the efforts, I did hope for something more organized with a clear set agenda. But hey, it's a start.

BBC: About 10,000 opposition activists demonstrated in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi - their first major protest since the conflict with Russia. Critics have accused President Mikhail Saakashvili of starting a war with Russia that Georgia could not win. At least five opposition groups were involved in Friday's protests, though one of the leading parties, the Christian Democrats, did not join in.

Analysts say some Georgians are reluctant to stoke unrest, fearing that will be exploited by Russia.
