Petar Stojkovikj protests against police brutality in Macedonia

STOP Police Brutality, protests

The Crime: A young man was brutally beaten to death by a police officer on Skopje's main square. The Ministry of Interior tried to cover it up!

Our response: After having learned the truth via social media, we commenced with daily peaceful protests against police brutality.

Their Response: Due to the pressure, they admitted the murder. Yet, other than the perpetrator, no one up the chain of command has been held accountable; they have also started a ruthless media campaign against us.

Our struggle for justice and ending police brutality went on! We were on the streets until they took full responsibility.

March for Tolerance, event

The 2012 March also aimed to express its support for the women which are also targeted by a negative hate-speech campaign that aims to exclude and eliminate all diversity in the society and focused on the women whose priorities don’t fit the traditional role of women in society.

The Helsinki Committee and the Coalition for sexual and healthcare rights demanded from the Government of the Republic of Macedonia to change the Criminal Code in the segment of sanctions for hate crimes and hate speech on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.
