Thousands of Macedonian protesters call on government to resign.
Several thousand Macedonians protested in the capital Skopje on Saturday, calling on the conservative government to step down amid a dire economic crisis in the former Yugoslav republic.
The rally, organised by the opposition left-wing SDSM party, came after the government adopted the 2013 budget Monday amid a series of skirmishes inside and outside the parliament. Seventeen people, including 11 policemen and two deputies, were slightly injured in the scuffles.
Police said about 4,000 people protested without incident in front of the premises of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party in central Skopje on Saturday. “We gathered here as we do not have a real parliament and a real government,” SDSM leader Branko Crvenkovski said. “This government can not even breathe without taking a loan,” he added
