Citizen journalists report on aspiration for democracy

Ilija Baltovski from the Association “It’s About Us” and Xhabir Deralla from CIVIL spoke on the occasion of the presentation of the Civic Lenses Project in Bitola, on 19 May

“What CIVIL is doing is in some way overcoming of the media darkness that has occupied Macedonia” – stated Baltovski before hundreds of citizens who were gathered in the square at the start of the protests for withdrawal of the abolition and for the resignation of Mayor Vladimir Taleski, which have been held almost every day in Bitola for more than a month. He then invited Deralla to address the crowd.

“The articles of the citizen journalists most often speak about the aspiration for freedom, democracy and justice” – said Deralla among other things.
