Protest “Death to fascism, freedom of expression” held
During the celebration marking Europe Day, the Front for Freedom of Expression held a protest in front of the EU Delegation’s building in Skopje under the motto “Death to fascism, freedom of expression”.
According to the organizers, the reason for the protest on this day (Europe Day and Victory Day over Fascism) is the attempt of the Macedonian government to introduce censorship by improperly adopting a new Law on Media.
The protest began at the time when a government delegation was supposed to arrive at the EU headquarters in Skopje to attend the Europe Day celebration.
The protesters demanded an end to censorship and pressures on the media.
They blamed both the government and the European Union for the current situation.
