Big anti-NATO demonstration in Montenegro

This 25 October 2015 video says about itself:

Massive Protest against Government’s Pro-NATO Course in Montenegro. And the rule of pro-Western dictator Milo Djukanović who has presided over Montenegro as either PM or president since February 1991. … 20,000 protesters – that’s equal to over 3% of the population. Protest ended when it was broken up by police.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Monday 26th October

MASSIVE demonstrations in Montenegrin capital Podgorica called for the resignation of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic at the weekend.

Police fired tear gas at the thousands-strong crowds on Saturday night while the opposition hurled firebombs and charged the parliament building, chanting: “Milo Thief.”

Pro-EU opposition leader Nebojsa Medojevic took part in the demonstrations, shouting: “The dictator must fall” — Mr Djukanovic has held power for 25 years — but the main message of protesters was resistance to the prime minister’s plans to join the US-led Nato military alliance. An invitation is expected in December.

Banners read: “No to Nato” and “For Military Neutrality of Montenegro.” A protesting electrician told reporters: “We are against Nato, but most of all we are hungry.”
