Meanwhile, security forces in Georgia are cracking down on protests against the laws, which demonstrators believe will lead them back to Moscow.

International Relations Editor Dominic Waghorn has this eyewitness…

Georgian security forces arrived at dawn. Phalanxes of masked men march through the streets and parks outside parliament.

They forced the participants of the rally. We were caught when they harassed the crowd. The woman screamed as she was pinned to the post by a press of people.

Demonstrators ringed the parliament building through the night, aiming to disrupt lawmakers’ efforts to block the passage of Putinist laws they believe would put their country on the path to dictatorship and back into Moscow’s embrace.

“They want to take us back to an autocracy in a country they’ve occupied for too many years,” one protester told Sky News.

The police cleared one entrance to the parliament.

Flanks of the Interior Ministry’s security forces, backed by helmeted riot police and water cannon trucks, are now locked in a tense standoff with a motley sea of ​​protesters around the corner from the parliament building.

The blue and yellow colors of Ukraine and the European Union are combined with the red and white of the national colors of Georgia.

The protestors were peaceful, but the police were not. They unleashed squads among the people.

Sky News witnessed masked security forces arresting a man who was punching a defenseless man in the head.

Protesters have failed to break away from parliament members, but their numbers are increasing.

We will not give up, – one woman told us.

“We cannot allow them to take away our freedom.”
