The 14th protest in a row was held last night in Skopje, where protesters demanded the postponement of the June 5 elections and the abrogation of the decision for the amnesty granted to politicians decreed by president of the country George Ivanov.

In front of the government building, protesters held photos of the leader of VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski, accompanied with the inscription “mob” and that of president Ivanov with inscription “amnesty”. These photos where then painted in color, symbolizing protests which are now known as the “Diverse Revolution”.

Among others, protesters chanted “Resignation, Resignation”.

Several days ago, subject to the protesters’ painting were ministries, the president’s building and the “Skopje 2014” project’s monuments.

“This situation must come to an end. If no solution is found, the situation will precipitate”, said Martin L, an activist of civil society.

Protests were also held last night in Veles, Manastir, Prilep, Ohrid, Kavardci, Strumica, etc. /balkaneu.com/
