At 11:00 am on Tuesday (21.07.2015) two separate columns of taxis will move towards the center of the capital where they will meet at Torwar hall.

From there the tour will continue to the lower house of parliament, where demonstrators will hand over a petition to politicians.

Unions demand accelerated work on amendments to the law on road transport, giving departments more effective tools to combat unlicensed taxi operators and drivers.
