“To us, so-called platform is insignificant, and it is not the document for rights improvements, but aims to make new character and to destroy Macedonian core,” Dragan Ugrinovski stated.

About 500 residents with black jackets peacefully walked toward monument of defenders in Zena Borec Park in Skopje, signing the national anthem and other Macedonian folk songs. Before the walk started, one of the activists offered a prayer, while others repeated loudly after him. Protesters walked with banner saying, “Macedonia is not a political party.”
