Hundreds of protesters gathered near the Ministry of Interior in Tirana on Wednesday to demonstrate against the demolition of the country's National Theatre.
The construction of the theatre began in 1938 with the arrival of Italian fascist forces in Albania. Since its announcement two years ago, the proposed demolition has been at the heart of many heated political debates between the ruling... Еще party and the opposition.
The ruling party has already approved the construction of a modern theatre at the same spot. Meanwhile, opposition leader Lulzim Basha urged the people to try and topple Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama with a new wave of protests.
