Everyone has the right to exercise freedom of speech. Such a statement made the President of Georgia while commenting the Tbilisi Pride events.
“All forms of violence, threats, pressure and hate speech are unacceptable to me! It is unacceptable because it is a violation of the constitutional rights of the people.
Everyone has the right to exercise freedom of speech. This is our ancient tolerance, which is part of our identity. Georgia was built on this and will develop upon it tomorrow as well. That is why I also believe that everyone has the right to demonstrate.
The participants of Tbilisi Pride also have the right to express their opinion and exercise the right, which is a constitutional right of all, in accordance with the norms established by the Constitution and the law”, - added Salome Zourabichvili.
