Statement from Georgian Musical Spaces, Festivals and Collectives


Art has consistently functioned as a powerful tool in the struggle for freedom. We, the torchbearers of these musical realms, firmly believe that politics and music are inextricably interrelated. Our endeavours are rooted in core values such as freedom, equality, solidarity, diversity, and inclusiveness. These are the principles we uphold to foster a harmonious environment within our country.

 

We hold that the professional and amicable relationships forged in any domain contribute significantly to the realisation of Georgia’s historically vital and constitutionally enshrined goal: reunification with the European family. This aspirational future is currently under threat. The imposition of Russian-style “Foreign Agents” law jeopardises the freedom of our creative and cultural ecosystem and undermines the progress we have achieved against historical challenges. Such legislation aims to quash dissent and isolate Georgia internationally.

In the face of repression, violence, threats, and injustices against rally participants, we stand united. We firmly reject the Russian regime and any measures that would alter our country’s European path, dragging us back into the Russian sphere of influence, which aims to quash dissent and isolate Georgia internationally.

Victory is inevitable, for this is a matter of our existence. Unity invariably fosters change—in solidarity and dignity, we will prevail.
