Peaceful Demonstrations in Skopje’s Rainy Weather

Time: 10:15 p.m. CEST

Organization of veterans of the Second World War supported today’s protest in Skopje, which usually starts with gathering at the offices of the prosecution for intercepted conversations and continues with disagreements with other institutions. People in large number walked today despite the rain and wind in Skopje.

This is 12th day of protests after President Gjorgje Ivanov decision to grant blanket pardon for 56 state officials. In the morning, police questioned members of political movement “Left” and later released two of them, but decided to put them in-house arrest. Police arrested them on the base of the video footage from April 13 during the demonstrations at the office of the president for communication with people. On his Facebook profile, Zdravko Saveski of the “Left” published he would be in-house arrest for eight days.

Here is photo gallery I took during today’s protests, which takes a look at the beginning of the protest, illustrates some of the faces and people’s emotions, and emphasized high politicization in the country, something that is part of many international reports.
