Police have set up barricades and are out in force.
The opposition has been blocking traffic in Skopje for four nights but organizers have announced that today’s protest will be the last one this year.

SDSM leader Branko Crvenkovski has announced that the opposition will leave parliament and that they “will fight in the streets”. He also accused the government of making a “police state” out of Macedonia.

Crvenkovski has also announced that he may not participate in the local elections next March unless all democratic standards are fulfilled and guaranteed by international organizations.
