The Georgian government has accused the opposition of an, "armed coup d'etat." However none of the reports I've seen have mentioned the protestors being armed and their hasn't been any real violence. In fact, many of the opposition leaders have made a big deal about their seizure being bloodless.
The claim of armed violence seems to be nothing more than crass propoganda. I'm becoming more suspicious of the Georgian govermnet all the time. That's probably not good news for the government as I want to believe they're in the right, but that's becoming harder all the time.
Update - In a realted story, opposition leader Nino Burdzhanadze has urged her followers to protect the physical safety of President Shevardnadze. Does that sound like an armed coup?
