Opposition supporters rallying in front of the Georgian Parliament in Tbilisi, Sunday, Nov. 23, 2003. Georgia's opposition called on its supporters Sunday to press forward the 'velvet revolution' by seizing state television and the police headquarters, while a growing number of security forces and other officials loyal to Shevardnadze defected to the opposition. Protest leader Mikhail Saakashvili gave Shevardnadze a half-hour to resign, threatening that the opposition would march on his residence on the outskirts of Tbilisi if he doesn't go. [AP]
