Near the government, at the intersection of boulevards Ilinden and Kliment Ohridski stage for today’s civic gathering is already set.

Sound is also set at several places, and piles of bottled water are allocated on dozens of locations.

There is a heavy police protection from both sides around the government.

The officers are seated on the lawn around the building of the Government and on the benches on the opposite street.

There is a table in front of the stage, where reporters will be able to take accreditations for the event.

Throughout the city center there is no movement, there is even no police.

Our correspondents say that rows of buses, vans and private cars are driving to Skopje, although controls are carried out on the departure and on the road.
