Protest in Skopje for defending Macedonia's constitutional name

Protest in Skopje for defending Macedonia

Skopje, 27 February 2018 (MIA) - The civic initiative 'For United Macedonia' staged a protest Tuesday in Skopje for 'defending the country's name and the nation's identity'.

Defying freezing temperatures and snow, the protesters held umbrellas in the colors of the Macedonian flag and chanted 'Long live Macedonia!' and 'Macedonians!'

The protesters demanded for an end to ongoing talks between Macedonia's government and their Greek counterparts aimed at solving the 25-year dispute, annulment of the law on languages and renouncement of the recently signed friendship agreement with Bulgaria.

They also demanded for an immediate release of those detained for the 27 April 2017 incident in Macedonia's  parliament.

The crowd gathered in front of the EU Office in Skopje and marched to the parliament. lk/21:57
