Many hidden motives for dockworkers strike in Porti Georgia

Motivations for strike run deep: a blessing in disguise in Poti Port,

They seem intent on closing Poti." Who? Jeffrey Silverman I know the former head of the KGB there and much of the history of the
port; it is really nasty, intentional trafficking of everything, you
name they traffic it, and where the money came from to support Misha
Saakashvili back in 2003, and the so-called Our Adjaria Movement. Let's
too not forget about big connections with Moscow and Russian Military
Intelligence (GRU).

Might be something bigger going on here - and this is especially
connected to the Russian link, Barvil Shipping (flags of convenience),
and perhaps the government likes this situation too, and lots of dirty
things have been going on in Poti. Now is the perfect opportunity to let
the crap float to the top. We must not forget the cozy connection between this port, weapons
trafficking, drugs for weapons swaps, etc. In addition, don't forget
about the Georgian-Lebanese banana mafia too, and how they are all
screaming fowl these days, like a scared chicken. "They'll just have to ship stuff to somewhere else and drive it round
the coast if these people don't want to work. Their jobs could go to
Abkhazia or Turkey. They seem intent on closing Poti." Why?

The strike continues at the Poti port. Port workers decided to resume
striking after they received a written response from the port
management. According to strikers, none of their demands were reflected in the

70% of the port employees have gone on strike for a week. The port is
completely paralyzed, they say.

It is still unknown what loss the port has suffered because of the
strike this week.

The management explained that this issue will be clarified after the
strike is over.

Ochamchira, an almost deserted port in Abkhazia, will probably soon
revive. In August, leader of Latvian expert group, Doctor of Economics
Uldis Osis submitted the program on building a deep-water sea port
surrounded by a free economic zone to Abkhaz authorities. The project
may change the entire economic situation in the region and thus
inevitably affect the Georgian-Abkhaz relationship. In an interview to
GeorgiaTimes, Georgian expert Giorgy Khukhashvili talked about what may
happen if large-scale economic projects are realized on both sides of
the border.
The workers, who are being manipulated into cutting-off
their-own-noses-to-spite their faces; if they don't want to work than so
be it!

If they want to stop eating so be it - they won't need jobs and the
prisons won't be so full if all these hunger strikes are successful. I
wish them the best and it may be good for Georgia in the end.
