CULTURE The book “Protest(s)” by Aleksandar Kondev and Zlatko Teodosievski is available today in electronic form on the media platform of CIVIL
The book “Protest(s)” is a joint work of the photographer Aleksandar Kondev and the author Zlatko Teodosievski and it contains photographs and texts created during the Colorful Revolution. This part is made possible by financial support from the Ministry of Culture and the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia.
Given the fact that the book has a circulation of only 150 copies that will not be sold, but will be distributed free of charge, CIVIL asked permission from the authors to publish it in electronic form (PDF), of course, also free of charge on the Internet portal Civilmedia.mk, as well as on the website Civic Lens.
In a video interview with one of the authors in this important publishing project, Aleksandar Kondev told CIVIL MEDIA:
“Today I am a little disappointed, because it is as if the Colorful Revolution began to be forgotten, which was neither ‘left’ or ‘right’, but a civil one that demanded justice, an efficient judicial system, a corrupt government and demanded freedom for the citizens.””Today I am a little disappointed, because it is as if the Colorful Revolution began to be forgotten, which was neither ‘left’ or ‘right’, but a civil one that demanded justice, an efficient judicial system, a corrupt government and demanded freedom for the citizens.”
Encouraged by Kondev’s photo exhibition of the same name, CIVIL started the initiative to declare April 12 as the Day of Civil Defiance. The date coincides with the beginning of the Colorful Revolution in 2016, which dealt a decisive civil blow to the authoritarian regime of Gruevski (2006-2016), but also includes all other initiatives, movements, protests and other forms of expression of civil dissatisfaction with freedom. , equality, justice and human rights.
CIVIL in recent years has launched several civic initiatives, including the Initiative for Abolition of Privileges of Officials, Citizens’ Forum for Participation in Government Policy Making, The Greens Are Coming, Human Rights Day and a number of others.
