With Russian soldiers in Georgia’s breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, a group of Forum.ge users proposed to mark the Defender of the Fartherland Day on February 23 by posting anti-occupation comments on Dmitry Medvedev’s Facebook page.
Cyxymu (Georgian blogger who was a target of series of attacks on social networking sites Facebook, Google Blogger, LiveJournal and Twitter, taking the latter offline for two hours on August 7, 2009) posted a photo about this campaign on Facebook that got attention of many Georgians. More than 200 Facebook users started to post comments and they still keep doing it:
“Дмитрий Анатольевич, я требую вывода российских оккупационных войск из Грузии!”
“Dmitry Anatolyevich I demand to withdraw Russian occupational forces from Georgia!”
After an hour comments started to disappear from the page says Cyxymu. But Georgians have not stopped, they keep posting comments and taking screenshots on Medvedev’s Facebook page.
UPDATE: Medvedev’s Facebook page has been blocked from access for Georgia.
