Remembering Tbilisi 9 April

Remembering the first anniversary of the 9 April tragedy (photos from my visit in 1990). One year earlier the Soviet army had brutally dispersed a peaceful anti-Soviet demonstration in front of the Parliament of the Georgian SSR, killing 20 demonstrators.

Only two years later, on April 9 1991, the Republic of Georgia declared the Restoration of State Independence.
