May 7, 2019 - Under the conditions of non-functioning of the institutions of the system, citizens are the supreme prosecutor and judge, they said from the ODUPRISE movement ahead of the protest scheduled for today (Tuesday, 7 May) at 8 pm on the platform in front of the Montenegrin Assembly in Podgorica.
The organizers said that they wanted to say once more with a new set of messages that "there is a lot of injustice and continuous resistance is the precondition for maintaining a healthy mind".
"They once told us that they did not know who was behind the protest and that we are enraging people to go out on the Street. We already told them that we are on the Street to react to the catastrophic thirty-year policy of DPS and its satellites, and really misguided the injustice, selective justice, crime, corruption, the inefficiency of state institutions, and the undeniable tone that responds to the legitimate demands of citizens from those we pay to work for us. They are the state occupiers, "they said from the ODUPISE movement.
They once again emphasized that they believed the Street was the only independent institution in Montenegro.
"On Tuesday, from the only independent institution - from the Street - we should all together announce caricatures from the top of the Prosecutor's Office that we want an independent judicial system as a prerequisite for the realization of the rule of law. In the conditions of dysfunctional institutions, citizens are the supreme prosecutor and judge - our voice is the most important voice - let's tell them they do not do their job properly, and that's why they have to leave! Let's go because we want responsibility; we want justice, the free judiciary and the prosecution; we want a state that is equally treating all its citizens. We can only fight for it together. They call on us to plant onions, but we are on the Street to sow the seed of freedom, for this and all future generations, "they said from the ODUPRISE movement, inviting citizens to join them at the tenth protest gathering in Podgorica.
The protest of the ODUPRISE civil movement began by gathering in front of the State Prosecutor's Office building in Podgorica on 2 February. Citizens seek the establishment of the rule of law and resignation of President of Montenegro, Milo Djukanovic, Prime Minister Dusko Markovic, Supreme State Prosecutor Ivica Stankovic, Special Prosecutor Milivoje Katnic, Director of the Anti-Corruption Agency Sreten Radinjić, and General Director of Public Media Service of RTCG Božidar Šundić and the RTCG Council.
Beside the core document- The Declaration of Free Citizens, the ODUPRISE movement initiated the Agreement on Future
, which signed all the 39 opposition deputies of the Assembly of Montenegro, promising to fight together for fundamental system changes and terminating the DPS rulling, lasting for three decades now.
