On May 11, citizens peacefully gathered around the building of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia to honour the fallen policemen in the Kumanovo incident. The assembled citizens called for solidarity with the victims’ families, the citizens of Kumanovo, and the detained activists from the protests that begun on May 5.

During the gathering, in collaboration with the Red Cross, citizens started collecting donations in support of the families of the victims in Kumanovo. 22.615 MKD were collected. While this was taking place, citizens lit up candles, laid flowers, and left messages of condolence for the eight policemen who lost their lives during a police raid in Kumanovo this last weekend.

Today, protests are scheduled to continue at 6 p.m. in front of the government building.
