Edi Rama asks the United States and the EU to stop tolerating the fascist Berisha regime. The socialists will continue the cause of early elections by participating in parliament and protesting everywhere. It would be a new opportunity for all parties to be equal in the face of the constitution.
"This is the Albania of the common people who are not allowed to breathe freely under a fascist regime, rotten by corruption and defended with the arms of the Republican Guard", "where there are not two parties fighting for power, but only a power that stole the votes to rob Albania ”. "This is Albania of the three unemployed men, fathers of six orphaned children, common people of this country, killed with firearms in a demonstration, intentionally provoked by the regime to justify the establishment of the system of force and fear with the alibi of a non-existent putsch ”. "In the name of this Albania, I ask the democratic world to review its relations with this regime that we would not tolerate in the violent attempt to bring back to this country the power of fear, whatever the price of our peaceful resistance, because we can never accept to fall again in the dark night of the state party and the state party ". "In the name of this Albania, I ask the United States and Europe not to tolerate any more, things that they do not tolerate in their countries, not to choose stability without the rule of law instead of functional democracy." socialist leader, Edi Rama, at the press conference held yesterday following the tribute event for the three victims of 21 in January. In the hall of the headquarters of the Socialist Party, in which it holds its weekly "interview with journalists", this time there are also many international media. Rama will speak in three languages: Albanian, English and Italian precisely because yesterday his speech was addressed to the international community rather than to Albanian citizens. There is no Edi Rama "to the senseless symmetry righteous in the name of stability between the manifestation of homage for those who were killed with the victory of those who killed them". In recent days, the international community had requested the cancellation or postponement of all the demonstrations to avoid an escalation of tensions, and according to Rama he will have to understand that for "the Albanian people", the cancellation of these gifts would have meant "l "surrendered in front of the ghost of that violent fear that for half a century has made Albania the most brutal communist regime in Europe".
There is not Edi Rama to be accused of having his political responsibilities for the crisis and the tragic turn of the Friday 21 January: "the 200 thousand citizens in today's tributes are Albania that cannot submit to the status quo of the hostage state, of the runaway corruption, of the logic that both sides are equally responsible for everything, even when innocent people are killed with rifles of the Republican Guard by the Albanian government ". It is clear to Edi Rama that this is not a struggle for power or a tragedy resulting from the clash between two violent forces. Otherwise, 200 thousand people would not have taken to the streets to pay homage to the three victims. Moreover, yesterday's peaceful demonstration shows how a week ago would have gone if the protesters had not been brutally provoked: "I have always said it and I repeat that if 21 January there would not have been a scenario to incriminate the the opposition, the demonstration would not have made news for anyone outside Albania because not even a glass would have broken ".
The way in which Berisha is trying to put the Attorney General and the President of the Republic under control and pressure, accusing them of being involved in the non-existent putsch, shows who is the real person responsible for 21 January, that is Sali Berisha. The commitment of the socialists is not "a war to annihilate the other party", nor to subdue it, but it is a commitment "to give Albania a new opportunity, creating the conditions that all parties are equal before the constitution and to the law ”. The socialist opposition is open to dialogue, but it will continue the cause of early elections, participating in Parliament and "protesting wherever it is possible". In recent days, the socialists have put forward their last offer for the solution of the crisis: the resignation of the Prime Minister and the formation of a technical government that leads the country to early elections. On the other hand, under the current conditions the administrative elections could not take place next May 8, and therefore the Socialists would not even participate in the reform of the Electoral Code because "the great problem of this country is not the lack of laws but their fearful not application ".
