Georgian workers employed in industrial professions have released an address expressing solidarity with their colleagues in Belarus, as protests in the country continue following  elections earlier this month.

Trade Union of Metallurgy, Mining and Chemical Industry Workers of Georgia on Tuesday released their statement in "full support" of the right of strike for the professionals of Belarus' industrial sector, who have gone on strike over the past week.

Tamaz Dolaberidze, president of the Georgian union, said in the address the right of strike was provided to the workers by law and expressed confidence in "success of the worker's movement" of Belarus.

Workers from Tkibuli and Chiatura industrial city mines as well as Ksani Glass Packaging Plant also released their own joint statement on social media, supporting "just demands" of the striking workers.

In video addresses the professionals told their colleagues in Belarus they were armed with "truth" and wished them a "victory in your struggle for your rights and justice".
