Albanian migrant workers hold anti-government protests in Athens, they demand Rama’s resignation
By chanting slogans such as “Rama leave!” and “We want Albania to be like the rest of Europe”, Albanian migrant workers who work and live in Greece, held a protest yesterday in front of the Albanian embassy in Athens against the current socialist government led by Edi Rama. Protesters demanded the resignation of this government in order to give way to a political solution in the country. They accused the government of lying and letting people down. According to them, the government has not kept its promises about making the lives of Albanian migrant workers living in Greece easier.

The chairman of the Democratic Party’s branch in Greece, Fatmir Gjoci and other protesters said that “Albanian migrant workers are ashamed of this government when they see images of cannabis cultivated everywhere”, but also “when they hear news stories about the Prime Minister having ties with criminals”.

Protesters in front of the Albanian embassy in Athens called on their fellow countrymen to travel to Tirana on 16 March to join the opposition in what the opposition has considered to be one of the biggest protests in front of the prime minister’s office. Albanian migrant workers in Greece said that everyone has a duty to free the country from the most anti-national government that Albania has had in the past three decades.
