Students throughout the country have threatened to continue their protests for the second consecutive week if the government does not meet their demands. As such, further protests are possible nationwide, notably in the capital Tirana, in the coming hours and days, along with associated traffic disruptions.
Students have been organizing demonstrations since December 4 to denounce the rise in university fees and increasing economic difficulties.
On December 8, thousands of demonstrators blocked the Ministry of Education and the adjacent roads for a fifth consecutive days of protests. Disruptions have also affected other cities such as Elbasan, Durres and Korce.
Individuals in Albania are advised to monitor developments to the situation, follow any instruction issued by local authorities, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
