Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Skopje (Macedonia), Planned Demonstration

The U.S. Embassy in Skopje informs U.S. citizens that the Colorful Revolution will resume demonstration tonight at 1700 in Skopje. Protesters will gather in front of the Parliament building in support of the Special Prosecutor. The number of expected participants in Skopje is between 1,500 and 2,000.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
