France 24 | Tens of thousands rally to renew calls for Saakashvili's resignation | France 24
Some 20,000 protesters gathered outside the parliament building in the Georgian capital Tbilisi as opposition leaders pushed for talks with President Mikheil Saakashvili following a month of demonstrations demanding his resignation.

AFP - Thousands of protesters rallied in the Georgian capital Saturday as opposition leaders pressed for a meeting with President Mikheil Saakashvili after a month of demonstrations demanding his ouster.
In a show of strength on the one-month anniversary of the start of protests, about 20,000 opposition supporters gathered outside parliament in central Tbilisi, calling for the president to resign by chanting "Misha Go!"
The protest came after the government and opposition leaders on Friday failed to make any progress in resolving the political stand-off during their first talks since protests began.

Saakashvili has apparently agreed to meet with the oppostion today. The positions seemed to be rather locked, so I doubt it'll yield much...
