The U.S. Embassy in Skopje informs U.S. citizens that the civic movement “Protestiram” has announced a protest in Skopje at 18:00 today, April 27, 2016. The demonstrators plan to assemble at the Special Prosecutor’s Office in central Skopje and march toward Parliament and other Government affiliated buildings. Similar protests are also expected in Strumica, Ohrid, Bitola, Veles, Kavadarci, Kichevo, Radovish and Prilep.
Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
