The leader of the Albanian socialist opposition, Edi Rama, confirmed that the demonstration "to pay homage in silence and respect to the three victims" of the 28 antigovernment procession in January will take place tomorrow, January 21 in Tirana, culminating in violent clashes against the police.
The socialist front therefore decides to ignore the appeals of the international community to organize demonstrations for "not feeding an escalation of tensions": for its part, the center-right premier, Sali Berisha, responded by canceling the majority demonstration scheduled for Saturday 29 January . "All those who believe in democratic and European values, all those who believe in our peaceful resistance must come and join us", Rama insisted instead. But tomorrow's event must also have a political value. In these two years of parliamentary boycott, the opposition has tried in every way without reaching any result. Rama stands with his back to the wall and will have to give a strong signal. The 21 January remains a political failure, as does the hunger strike and obstructionism in parliament. What will Rama say tomorrow?
