This time, Basha said that not only protests will continue, but that there will also be civil disobedience. According to him, the opposition no longer obeys to police either, stressing that “we no longer recognize parliament and this criminal police”. Basha said that civil disobedience “will expand from the south to the north of the country. “You have risen and will not stop until freedom and democracy prevail. I’d like to thank hundreds and thousands of Albanians who gathered here in a matter of hours”, he said.
Meanwhile, Basha also told the crowd of protesters that the journey that the opposition has embarked on is a one-way journey and that they should fear nothing.
“We are not scared, because we’re fighting for a fair cause, for a fair mission, for the future of Albanians. We fight for freedom and democracy, we fight for free and fair elections. The battle has started. The long and short history of this country tells us how this battle will end: Criminals will be ousted and democracy will prevail”, Basha said.
In the end, the opposition leader has called on citizens not to surrender, because the victory belongs to them and not the government. “There’s no turning back in this battle that we’ve started”, he appealed among others.
