One of the most iconic techno clubs in the world, Tbilisi’s Bassiani is “facing a threat of closing down”.
According their official statement, and following last weekend’s police raids, Bassiani has remained closed since the May 12th, which, along with the closure of Cafe Gallery, sparked a protest rave outside Parliament Of Georgia and saw the country’s Minister Of Internal Affairs, Giorgi Gakharia, issue an apology and promise to change Georgia’s strict drug policies.
The statement of clubs official says: “Behind the Bassiani helmet stands an angry warrior, who fights for the new ideas and who won’t back down from the struggle for freedom. We won’t stop and will continue to fight against the unjust system and inequality. Thank you very much for your unconditional love and support. In this war for ideas and values our only hope is our truth and people, who have always stood with us.”
The club has also set up a donation fund, as they need money for “a legal battle and stop the state oppression.”
