Nana Malashkhia, 47, became an icon of the March demonstrations in Georgia after she was seen waving a European Union flag while being blasted by a water cannon. She told RFE/RL about how she came to be at the heart of the protests against a proposed "foreign agents" law that opponents feared could be used to undermine Georgia's progress toward EU membership. The Georgian government dropped the proposed legislation in the face of the mass protests.
