As today Tirana will host 27 European leaders for the EU-Western Balkans summit, the opposition will hold a protest.
Although many streets of the capital are blocked, the opposition has not retreated, retaliating with force in their protest, which they have emphasized several times that it will be peaceful.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Democratic Party, Sali Berisha, announced yesterday in a press conference that the opposition would protest on Dêshmorët e Kombit boulevard, even though it is an area where a security perimeter has been established by the police due to the summit. "It is this party which in three decades was the real locomotive of the process of Albania's integration into the EU. The summit is a great support for the democrats because it is this party in the government that signed the stabilization agreement, liberalized visas... in this aspect in the history of the DP, tomorrow's summit is the biggest support for its democratic aspirations and ideals, but tomorrow we the opposition people will fill the streets and squares of Tirana in a powerful sign of protest, precisely in defense of European values.
Terribly endangered and threatened by Rama and his regime. Every Albanian who loves this country, freedom, dignity, join us tomorrow in the square to prove to the European leadership that we are in a battle with the enemy of the Albanian vote, Edi Rama", he said.
The State Police, on the other hand, did not give permission to the Democratic Party to protest from 12:00 to 16:00. Despite this fact, the Democratic Party has not withdrawn from the protest and the country, while they have called on the citizens to join the protest.
