Hundreds of demonstrators marched through the center of Georgia's capital and rallied outside City Hall Thursday in their latest protest aimed at unseating President Mikhail Saakashvili. The rain-soaked march was part of a series of daily rallies against the US-allied Saakashvili, who protesters say walked into a crushing defeat in last year's war with Russia and is displaying increasingly authoritarian tendencies. Thousands have gathered in Tbilisi every day since April 9 demanding Saakashvili resign. But Saakashvili, who says he's done nothing wrong, is refusing to step down, leading to a split in the opposition between moderates who believe they will eventually meet their goal with continued peaceful protests and radicals who consider them powerless.
