Informal group of residents, artists and other supporters expressed their discontent with developments in the political situation in Macedonia, requesting of the President Gjrogje Ivanov to respect Republic of Macedonia’s Constitution. They asked protection of Republic of Macedonia as a modern republic that belongs to all its residents. Protesters walked from the Government of Republic of Macedonia to the Assembly building.

“Macedonia is modern republic of its citizens. Macedonians, Albanians, Srbs, Roma, Bosniaks, Turks and Vlachs and others are living in one country of Macedonian people that faces discrimination even in the 21st century. We demand that neither political party accepts discriminatory politics of certain countries,” Igor Durlovski, Macedonian bass opera singer said on behalf of organizers.
