Arlind Qori, chairman of the Together We Win movement, was invited to the Breaking studio.

The main initiator of the protests for the tower that has started to be built behind the Opera and Ballet Theatre, seems to have recently withdrawn. Asked about this, he says:

"We have temporarily moved away from calling protests at the site of the tower construction, because unfortunately there was not the kind of citizen participation that would have enabled the blocking of that tower. It is a long job to give citizens the confidence that through commitment, protest, things can be change. So we're reconceptualizing our resistance to that tower. We're gathering all the legal information, finding any legal loopholes that would stop the construction of that tower, and we're also starting to make constant appeals to the citizens to be aware and call the last one was today.

On the other hand, we are dealing with the issue of the minimum living wage. About 6 months ago, we submitted to the central election commission 20,000 citizens' signatures and also 1 draft law that requires the establishment of the minimum living wage in Albania, in a matter of days the Albanian parliament will call for 1 protest on the issue of the minimum living wage, because I believe that Albania is 1 economic and social emergency.

There are many citizens who barely manage to feed themselves or meet their basic needs, so the law of the living minimum is a necessity"
