Eighth Day of Protests Against French Proposal in Skopje

Hundreds of citizens gathered in front of the governmental building in Skopje to stage another protest against the French proposal for resolution of the Bulgarian blockade over the EU integration of North Macedonia. Like previous days, the protesters gathered in front of the government, and from there they marched towards the Parliament. The protesters addressed messages to the governmental officials, demanding them to not accept the French proposal, because according to them, it contains claims and regulations that will declare that the Macedonian language is a dialect of the Bulgarian, and thus negate the Macedonian identity. The protests are held every day since Sunday 3 July 2022.
