Protests in Skopje: ‘Selective Justice is Injustice’


Time: 11:07 p.m. CEST

There was an unpleasant serendipity on Friday’s protests in Skopje when police deployed earlier in the day metal fences moving the line far of the Assembly by not allowing the demonstrators and people to approach on the second line of the Boulevard “October 11th.” Regardless the deployed police after the speeches of people against the government and those on power, protesters threw the paint ballon balls on the Assembly wall. The main point and parole of today’s protest was against selective justice and it was public anger after today’s withdrawal of pardons granted by Gjorgje Ivanov to 22 persons.

Skopje’s weather at the end of May improved and enabled colorful sky on Friday that suited to the supporters of the “Colorful Revolution” protest that began soon after first wave of demonstrations against pardoned state officials.
