Hands Off the Communists of Georgia – On the persecution of Temur Pipia

Temur Pipia, Chairman of the CC of the Unified Communist Party of Georgia, was arrested in the Georgian borders on 28-29 March, upon his arrival from Russia. 

The reason for his detention was that among his personal belongings there were commemorative medals donated by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) for the 75th anniversary of the Great Anti-fascist People’s Victory.

The persecution is based on Georgia’s despicable anti-communist legislation which prohibits communist symbols, equating them with the ones of the nazis!
