Slovenia: Thousands take part in anti-govt bicycle protest in Ljubljana

Thousands of protesters marched and cycled through Ljubljana to demonstrate against the Slovenian government this Friday over restrictions imposed during the coronavirus pandemic. Protesters allege that the government has abused its powers throughout the pandemic, suppressing environmental groups and interfering with media. «We are here today to show our disagreement with corruption... Еще, disagreement with restricting freedom of media, to tell how important it is that media is independent for a democratic society to work and we are here to show our disagreement with the lack of transparency of the use of public funds and other disputed practices. So we insist that our government resigns,» said one protester. Friday demonstrations are in their fifth week and appear to be gaining momentum in their number of participants.
