The Bosnians plan to set up a wire fence with blades due to the wave of migrants at the borders with Montenegro and Serbia

If Croatia, or the European Union, closes its border for migrants, Bosnia and Herzegovina could easily close its eastern border, and one possibility is to place a wire fence with cuts against Serbia and Montenegro.

Due to a critical situation, the Council of Ministers of BiH has already asked the BiH Presidency for permission to send members of the armed forces to the border in order to prevent illegal passage to the country, and as Dragan Mektić, Minister of Security of Bosnia and Herzegovina, said, one possibility is to place on the boundary of the wire, if the situation changes.

"In this case, all the necessary institutions need to get acquainted and find financial means," Mektić said.

On the other hand, yesterday the President of the Council of Ministers of BiH, Denis Zvizdić, confirmed that the complete closure of the border for migrants was one of the possibilities. He emphasized that currently around 4,000 migrants live in BiH and that they monitor the situation in Greece, where there are about 70,000. A large part of them could occur in BiH.

Director of the Foreign Affairs Service, Slobodan Ujić, told Avaz that the installation of a wire at the border is difficult to implement due to the financing and configuration of the ground.

"Do you know what our eastern border is? It is almost impossible to place a wire here, perhaps only on some parts, "Ujic warns.

He emphasizes, however, that the only way out of the crisis is the effective border control.

An open letter to Mr. Udo Bullmann, the leader of the S&D Group in the European Parliament: You missed an opportunity in Slovenia to stress that media freedom applies to everyone equally!

Dear Mr. Udo Bullmann,

I am writing to you because you were in Slovenia supporting the candidature for the European Parliament elections of the Vice-President of your group in the European Parliament, Ms. Tanja Fajon, and her SD party. As the newspaper Večer reported, during your visit you emphasized that we must defend our freedom in Europe and that no regime should prevent the expression of opinions. Despite the fact that we have different views on the whole range of issues that contemporary Europe is dealing with, I could not agree more with you. But what you stated must apply to everyone equally, irrespective of the ideological differences and variances in different values between individuals and groups. Unfortunately, you missed the opportunity to express this explicitly.

Your statement refers only to the Hungarian protest note to the Slovenian Foreign Ministry due to the cover page of the magazine Mladina. I do not mean to write about this issue, because you are obviously acquainted with it (although unilaterally), I just want to inform you that you are receiving selective information about pressures on the media in Slovenia, which have nothing to do with freedom and democracy. As the editor-in-chief of the right-oriented magazine Demokracija, the law enforcement agencies have questioned me three times about the contents of the magazine and its covers, threatens to persecute me, and each case could sentence me to two years imprisonment. This issue in Slovenia went so far, that the Prime Minister Marjan Šarec last autumn warned state owned companies not to advertise in media which is spreading hate. In Slovenia the term “spreading hate” means that you do not share the same views nor do you share the same values as the left political parties. And it did not stop there. The then Minister of Culture announced a tightening on media legislation to punish and subdue disobedient media. Both actions were directed against our magazine, which over the course of the past few months has put a great amount of pressure on us. I am asking you: Is this normal? Is this freedom? Is this the freedom of the press? Is it democratic? Is this in spirit of European values, of which your parliamentary group has so much to say about, but only when it is necessary to attack sovereign states, such as Poland and Hungary?

All this is happening to the Demokracija magazine, which is de facto the opposition, because the editorial board does not share values with the Prime Minister Marjan Šarec and his coalition partners, including SD, your partner in the S&D Group. The youth of this party advocates freedom of speech and media with a proposal for founding the internet police. And this party does not hide the sympathy for the former communist regime, which at the time of the socialist dictatorship had inflicted more Slovenes than the Nazism, and which, due to different standpoints, had killed more civilians than fascism.

Personally, I have always supported freedom of speech, which I understand in its original, primal sense as an absolute human right. I do not agree with political pressures on media, but if anyone nowadays is under pressure from the authorities in Slovenia, it is the magazine Demokracija. So I ask you, what will you say about the actions taken by the government led by Šarec, described above? Will you at all? Next time before you jump the gun, first do your research on the situation in Slovenia, so that you avoid looking like a hypocrite. But above all, sit down, take a deep breath, think carefully, get familiar with all the circumstances, and only then allow your brain neurons to start skipping. I believe that this is not easy and that with it exists the possibility to offend your party comrades. Nevertheless, I hope that in the future you will not miss the opportunity, when talking about freedom of speech, if you are talking about it, to defend the freedom of all media, not just those who are ideologically close to you. After all, you are coming from a democratic country, dissimilar to Slovenia that has a rather young democracy (at least on the declarative level).

Freedom of speech either is or is not. There is media freedom or there is not. And there is nothing in between. It is not possible something that is considered an attack on freedom of speech in one EU country, the same something to be considered as hate speech in another EU country. Freedom of speech (and with it freedom of the media) is an absolute human right, an inalienable elementary human right, one of the greatest achievements in the field of human rights, on which democratic systems are founded. Tell Tanja Fajon, explain it to her in a way so that she as well will understand, that there is no freedom of speech, if it only applies when the left is speaking, but when someone else does it out of the opposite ideological pole, that freedom of speech disappears. Above all, tell her that changing the Slovenian legislation in a manner that penalizes and dampens the media that disagrees with the ruling (left) regime, and the government appeals to companies not to advertise in certain media outlets, has nothing to do with the freedom, about which she likes to speak so much. Her vocabulary is in fact the vocabulary of a dictator, her words are worse than poisoned arrows, and the filter she has between the brain and mouth only exists when it benefits political and financial interests of her political comrades and globalist elites.

With respect,

Jože Biščak, editor-in-chief of the magazine Demokracija

It's not a divorce yet

Hungarian opposition parties and the Western media's liberal mainstream had been waiting for March the 20th as if it was a new national holiday. On that day, the European People's Party's political assembly had to make a decision about the future of Fidesz in the right-wing moderate party family. One of the root causes of the conflict is that certain members of the party family are not really right-wing. In fact, they are, citing Viktor Orban: "left-wing liberal".

Mr. Janez Janša: Slovenians and Europe

There comes a time, when a nation needs to think about its place in the world. It can only effectively do so in an open and democratic discussion. Let us start that process as soon as possible. The outlook is very different now than it was in 2004. That was when we entered the EU and NATO and attached our destiny, with the strong backing of the people through a referendum, politically, with other nations of the Western hemisphere.

In the decade and a half that followed, we spent the first few years in a honeymoon period of a reunited Europe, then struggled with the economic crisis of the developed world, and ultimately faced pressure of the massive migration to our rich and old continent. Without pause to take a break, Brexit followed, representing the biggest shock for the EU since its onset. One of its biggest members is leaving the EU, which had so far only been expanding.

The EU did not fall apart because of that and will not fall apart tomorrow either, but it did halt. Suddenly even reversing became possible. Only the fact itself that such a possibility exists ferments insecurity. Unstable surroundings nurtures egoisms and hinders compromises, which are the basis for a well-functioning Union.

Recent crises, the migrant crisis in particular, made the double standards within the EU very visible. Due to its specific weight, with multiple representations within the Brussels administration and the influence of key formal decision makers in the EU, particularly the European Commission, the biggest Member States of the EU can easily turn their own domestic problems into joint ‘EU’ problems. In the same vein, they can ignore the domestic problems of the smaller Member States. They can labell them as nationalistic tendencies or selfish, non-European acts and in extreme cases even mark them as possible violations of European legal standards.

The use of double standards on the axis of big - small Member States has recently also had the double standards based on political divisions added to it. While for countries with non-socialist governments, the European Parliament and the European Commission are imposing warnings and sanction resolutions or measures, and we do not witness the same measures when it comes down to countries with socialist or left liberal governments. In order to conceal the political double standards, their apologists conveniently use ideology.

The last hit is an alleged clash between various “democracies”. The progressive  forces supposedly embrace liberal democracy, whereas illiberal voices are considered to be ‘regressive’. When we look at the trick more closely, it becomes apparent that it is only just that - a trick. Democracy is democracy. A decision-making process, where each adult with a working capacity has a single voice.

The adjectives: social, Christian or liberal democracy are value based. They mark different political directions, which are all democratic, because they acknowledge the general voting rights and denounce all the totalitarianisms equally. Until recently, it was true that no democracy is ‘worthier’ than the other. Then another trick appeared, where people started to claim that only liberal democracy counts as real. That the liberals, due to their name, have used the trick is a given. That the trick is being used by the socialists, is only natural since they are used to distorting reality. But to see that some Christian democrats have taken the bait, this borders on masochism.

The usage of double standards is always the fastest way to destroy inter personal relationships, trust and creative atmosphere in each community. The intensity of such occurrences in the European Union has grown drastically within the last couple of years and this should worry us very much.

Slovenians joined the group of European nations. We entered the unique formation that legally provides equality of our culture, language and national identity. A formation that enables us to co-decide within several important areas. In ideal circumstances we would assume that we can do so and that everybody respects the rules. Today, both of those named assumptions are under question.

The positive climate is cooling off and threats are awakening. Slovenians, as a small nation, need to be aware of this, seriously and on time. The threats are coming from both sides. Accelerated ‘integration’ and ‘federalization’ of the Union can only be realized today to the detriment of smaller nations. If our ‘national voice’ is weakened, and the majority decision is strengthened, we will end up with less than 1% of the impact on the majority ‘European’ elections from the at least partially equitable position. At the same time the nationalist movements of the big European countries, which have in the past centuries many times devastated the Continent, also today are not paper tigers. They are present, but hiding behind the big words and phrases, media monopoly and the usage of double standards. Some might see them temporarily as allies in the fight against aggressive socialist assaults with which they wish to turn Europe into a multicultural aggregate. However, history has taught us that extremities of the big fight each other or alternatively, make deals on the account of the small ones.

Do not be surprised if some day in the future you will find out that amongst federalists and nationalists of the big European countries, when it comes down to the final goal, big differences do not exist. Never forget the pact between Hitler and Stalin. Never forget Jalta. Never forget the double standards in dealing with South and North Stream.

The time ahead of us, also ahead of Slovenians, is the time to fight. A fight to protect our comfortable position in the world. A fight for the Europe that we voted for in the 2003 referendum. For a Europe of European civilization and culture, based on the Ten Commandments and Enlightenment. A Europe that respects human rights and basic freedoms, gender equality and the right of a man to safety and dignity. For a Europe that can protect and defend its civilisation. The legal base for such a Europe is written in the Lisbon Treaty.

That is why, Slovenians should be worried today by everything that pulls us away from the Lisbon Treaty.

Janez Janša is  a Slovenian politician who was Prime Minister of Slovenia  from 2004 to 2008 and again from 2012 to 2013. He has led the Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) since 1993.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s “State of the Nation” address

[Former] President of the Republic, [former] Prime Minister, Mr. Speaker, Mayor of Budapest, Ladies and Gentlemen, It is a pleasure to see you here again. I am always surprised by how many people come to my state of the nation addresses. Although if I think about it, it’s understandable for people to be curious to see whether the Prime Minister is able to say anything new. I’m also curious about that, and so that’s why I’m here as well. If I had to summarise this assessment of the past year in a single sentence, I would say this: may every year be at least as good as 2018 was! We won our third consecutive two-thirds majority in a parliamentary election, and the Hungarian economy grew by some 5 per cent. If you suspect that there’s some kind of link there, you’re not mistaken.

SDS Party President Janez Janša: A System for the Elite, First-Class (1st picture)

A system that primarily serves the elite is in place in Slovenia. The self-selected, self-proclaimed elite. First class. They use all means to maintain authority, their status and privileges. One of the most catastrophic consequences of this system in the long run is the erosion of human capital and basic elements of Slovenian statehood.

New Brutal Attack on Freedom of Speech! Man Goes on Trial for Criticizing a Teacher Who Indoctrinated Children with LGBT Ideology!

We have highlighted years ago, in the weekly Demokracija magazine and on our website, the increasingly present LGBT ideology and the theory of gender in the Slovenian school system. However, that is not all – in many western countries this has become part of the officially prescribed "political correctness" (or new totalitarianism), since these ideologies and their promotors must not be criticized. This is clearly spreading in Slovenia as well.

Lana Lokteff: The West Needs To Go Through A Death And A Rebirth

Lana Lokteff is among most known personalities of new political right, that become prominent in recent years. Due practical monopoly influence political left has in mainstream media, new right uses alternative way to promote right ideas, most notable podcasts, vlogs, social media in general. Web media company Red Ice where Lana for decade regularry comment on political and social issues, has 300 regular subscribers with tens of thousands random daily visitors. Among them are obviously leftists too as they constantly put pressure on mainstream politics and web giants executives to shut down Red Ice and thus Lana as well. This leftist efforts are proof of Lana influence on political and social issues in current western society.

Currently the main topic on migration issues is implementation of so called »Global pact on migration«. Would you agree that this pact is very dangerous document?

Yes! In short, this pact not only supports endless open borders into European nations but the agreement also wants to criminalize any criticism of mass immigration! So if Europeans oppose this pact, which is in line with the UN's 'replacement migration' agenda, it may become a criminal offense to speak out against it.

All those who oppose mass migrations and the destruction of Western traditions are regularly labeled by globalists as racists, neo-Nazis, xenophobes, etc. What do you think about these labels?

Of course they are ridiculous and used by people who cannot debate. These loaded terms are racial slurs used against White people, who oppose blatant anti-White politics. No other people on Earth are called racists, xenophobes or Nazis for wanting their people to remain a majority in their nation. These words are used to guilt and shame European people into becoming a minority in their country.

When they attack you with above mentioned level, how do you react? Do you argue, try to explain your position or you just shrug them off?

It depends who I am speaking to but people rarely say these things to my face because they know they'll have to actually debate me. They usually post comments or write articles online attacking me instead. If in person, I laugh and then ask them a few very basic but powerful questions which I know they cannot answer without sounding like a hypocrite.

Would you agree that "progressive" movements goal is to deliberately weaken West and made it incapable of resisting this invasion of the Third World?

Yes but the invasion by the 3rd world is only made possible by White and Jewish elites in the west who have opened the borders. I think the ultimate plan is to weaken, shame and destroy European people to the point where they no longer care to exist as a people, making it easy to replace them and take what they've built. White people stand in the way of globalists doing whatever they want. Watch my video called, Why They Want To Replace White People which has already had 800,000 views.

Would you agree with the assessment that mass migration is not the only threat to the traditions and culture of Western civilization? That the same pervasive threat is represented by various pacifist, LGBT and other »progressive« movements promoted by the left liberal Western elites?

Yes, we can clearly see that. Even if mass immigration wasn't happening, leftist mentality has divided and weakened Europeans like nothing else. We've become sick mentally and emotionally and have lost touch with all things natural, beautiful and healthy. Our families are broken, people aren't having children, feminists constantly attack men, women are proud to be called sluts, obesity is called 'body positivity,' adults and children are given hormones to change their sex or remove their genitals, and there is constant contempt for true strength and beauty. Additionally, we've become self hating blaming the entire world's problems on European people and racism. It's a mess.

In your opinion, why cultural Marxism get so alarming level of acceptance mainly among youth?

It mostly comes from Hollywood. Turn on any movie or TV show and you will find cultural Marxist programming, same with modern music. Young kids are constantly hit with subliminal programming in entertainment but also blatant messages in school. The educational system in most western nations is dominated by Marxists and so is media and entertainment. The edgy underground counter culture is now us.

Universities were once places, where one could exchange ideas, learn, even challenge taboos. Now they are indoctrination camps. What on your opinion went wrong and how to fix this appaling situation?

Our universities have been taken over by sly Marxists and communists long ago. They covertly took up these positions while the opposition to them became lazy and too trusting. When they became the majority in the system, they blocked anyone not like them from getting in. The answer is for us to take back those institutions in a similar way and that is what they are so paranoid about because they know it worked for them. We should also build our own....again.

Women that reject feminist agenda, almost always face slurs that they are brainwashed/uneducated or too weak to »leave patriarchy« or simply that they are stupid. How do you respond on such slurs?

I tell them then it's obvious they don't actually know any nationalist anti-feminist women! They can listen to the many great women I have interviewed on this topic.

Dont you find interesting, that all those so called empowered, independant etc. feminists in fact hang on government support and handouts?

Haha, yes they claim they don't need a man but then use and take everything men have built or created. It's a lie. Ofcourse women need men just like men need women. It's not supposed to be a competition but a joint effort. If feminists don't have children, they are doing us a favor in the long run.

Left liberal elites already control most mainstream media and now they are out trying to censor world web. Why such fear?

They fear us because we have the truth that will undo their years of propaganda, lies and brainwashing. If people really know, it would be game over for them. They have billions of dollars and still they are failing and media outlets like ours are increasingly popular with shoe string budgets. It's why they now turn to totalitarian censorship and banning. They are desperate, not strong. Censorship never works in the long run but they will try.

Some web operators cave to left liberal pressure and started to purge known »rightwingers« from their sites.  Did Facebook, Twitter, Youtube closed your web site or account as well and what was the reason, if any given? 

We are under attack. We've literally had politicians and various interest groups calling for YouTube to delete our channel. We just received a strike 2 from YouTube for reporting on a migrant who raped and killed a German woman. They claimed we were guilty of 'hate speech.' Outrageous! We are the problem for pointing out and being against rape and violence?! One more strike and our channel with 300,000 subscribers will be deleted. It won't make us shut up and go away though.

Both Europe and USA are damaged with impact of cultural Marxism as well with immigration problems. However level of damage, means to resist, ways how political right responds to threat are different. Can you, at least in general, highlight those differences?

If I understand you correctly, you are asking the different ways in which those on the right are responding to leftist politics destroying the west.

In Europe, nationalist groups are getting increasingly popular for good reason. They are working on a political level and running for positions in government. Europe is more diverse when it comes to parties that can run, unlike America and the tight 2 party system. After Trump, most true nationalists (who want European Americans to remain the majority) realized that nothing could really be done via politics in America, for now anyway. Trump did try to limit immigration but the masters behind the curtain showed him his limits fairly quickly. Anything good he's tried to do has been shut down. No wall will be built. His presidency has been better for Israel than America.

In America, nationalists are working more on a cultural and social level to influence and spread their ideas. Their commentary is starting to enter into the mainstream political discourse.

I'd say both European and American nationalists need to get better at forming organized interest groups who fight for their interests and against political censorship and discrimination.

And on the end, your opinion- could we avoid destruction of western civilisation or we already passed point of no return?

I think we are at the point where we need to help push it to the ground so we can rebuild and keep aspects we like and throw out aspects that never should've been incorporated to begin with, like liberal mindset. The west needs to go through a death and a rebirth and I welcome that. We as a people need to go through the fire to come out stronger and more refined.

Šarec's Government Confirms it Aims to Destroy Opposition Media!

Šarec’s government confirmed on Tuesday's Odmevi (TV Slovenia program) that it will carry out the announced changes in the area of media legislation. The amendment of the law on media will undoubtedly step on the toes of media that will not report agreeably, that is, pro-government. The media will have to answer for the spread of alleged hate speech.

A Woman is Not a Frog! Šarec’s Government to Give 50 Thousand Euros to Brainwash Boys About "Exceeding Stereotypes"

It is a new day and a new project by Marjan Šarec’s government, with which they want to further brainwash people. This time, the Orwellian Ministry of Labor, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities published a public call for co-financing projects in the field of equality between women and men for 2019, with which they want to draw attention to "violence during dating" and devote themselves to "working with boys for overcoming stereotypes". Sounds familiar?

Keith Miles: The Return of Marxism?

This is of course an astonishing question to ask. Why anyone would want to believe in Marxism is a modern mystery? Its partner in crime - socialism seems in the modern situation to ignore its disastrous past.

Photo Gallery! Patriotic Protesters in Front of National Assembly Critical of Government's Signature of Infamous Marrakesh Declaration! This is Treason for Slovenia!

The patriotic protests took place in the Republic Square in Ljubljana, blocking the traffic in front of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia. Protesters also blocked the entrance to the parliament, which was closed for the time being. It is estimated that between 300 and 400 people have gathered, however the number was difficult to assess due to constant new arrivals. The United Nations’ Compact on Migration, which Slovenia has scandalously confirmed in Marrakesh, along with some more than 150 countries, contains recommendations for the formation of national policies in the area of migration, State Secretary at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Sandi Čurin, told STA. The fact that about 40 countries did not confirm it, however, according to him, does not mean anything drastic. Oh really? Such allegedly "non-binding international documents", as experience shows, will soon become mandatory for national states.

On Monday, in Morocco, Marrakesh, representatives of the UN member states have confirmed the UN's Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. It was joined by Slovenia as well. On December 19, the resolution will be approved by the UN General Assembly. Because of the infamous Marrakesh agreement, civil and independent political initiatives have already called on the government to publicly cancel the intended departure of the delegation to Marrakesh and the signing of the declaration. However, by the deadline on Sunday, December 9, the government did not listen to the will of the people, so as expected and according to their forecasts, there was a physical occupation of the streets in the center of Ljubljana.

Protesters have gathered in front of the parliament first, protesting against the adoption of the Marrakesh Declaration, while vehicles of the demonstrators were visible on Šubičeva street. The question was if the street would be blocked until the government leaves the harmful agreement.

The Government Was Warned of the Protest!

Several civil initiatives wrote a Letter to Prime Minister Marjan Šarec to publicly cancel the departure of the delegation to Marrakesh and the signing of the Marrakesh Declaration: “Dear Mr Šarec! We hope that you are aware that you have come to lead the government with a group of parties with which you have received 4.91 per cent of the vote. Therefore, you have no right to sign something that can affect the fate of the people”. They noted that the signing of this document would be detrimental to the future of the Slovenian nation and they marked the signature as treason that would destabilize and destroy national states.

 A Blockade of Ljubljana Center?

 Therefore, they have set a deadline for the government to publicly cancel the departure to Marrakesh and the signing of the declaration, until December 9th at midnight. “Failing to do this, on December 10, 2018, at 12 o'clock in the evening, we will massively occupy the streets and markets in Ljubljana and force you with all the legitimate and legal peaceful means available to ordinary citizens, to irrevocably resign and to inform the whole world public that the Slovenian delegation in Marrakesh is against the will of the people and does not have the mandate to sign the proposed declaration”. In addition, they wrote that in Slovenia the citizens exercise their power directly and through elections, according to the principle of separation of powers on the legislative, executive and judicial power.

The Public Does Not Support the Adoption of the Marrakesh Agreement!

According to the opinion poll conducted by Parsifal for Nova24TV, the majority of respondents believe that the Marrakesh Declaration should be rejected because it will harm the countries to which migrants come. 54.2 percent of respondents agree with this claim. Only 19.3 percent of respondents believe that the said declaration should be supported because it will additionally protect the rights of migrants, while 26.4 percent of respondents consider that they do not know enough and thus cannot take a stand.

Bernard Brščič: It is the Cowardice of the Slovenian Government!

One of the protesters, who presented himself as a member of the Committee on Equal Opportunities, explained that they are fighting “to have at least about the same chance in the election so that the voice of the common person is heard. We are also in solidarity with protesters in Europe with similar problems – their voice in official institutions is not heard”. “In France too, it is not just about protests against fuel taxes, but a set of reasons why this is the case. The Front National Stance and the Liberation of Society covers all political colors and parties," he explained.

He also stated that they did not stop the traffic. "I know, however, that there were calls for a spontaneous protest to take place in a slightly different way, not just with statements. We have been protesting for a long time, but we have no real interlocutor with any institution", he explained. According to his estimates, about 300 people gathered at the protest, organized by the "Conscious People of Slovenia" movement.

Among the demonstrators in front of the National Assembly, who oppose the signing of the UN Compact on Migration, was also Vili Kovačič. He said that they are protesting because of the agreement and other problems, among which he pointed out democracy and elections. "I called on four presidents in a letter that the decision of the Constitutional Court, which stipulates the need to remedy the democratic standards, the laws of democracy and elections, has to be taken seriously. The deadline was one year, however since then no one has touched on the issues in the parliament. The deadline will expire on January 15”, he said.

"First of all, we must restore the national sovereignty of this country and through it conquer this liberalization element of the society so that people become free to be able to decide on important issues by their own will. That is not the case now, the will of the people is despised, the referendum provisions are despised, 99% of people are despised”, said Gašper Ferjan, a member of the Democratic Committee.

“Our demands are the regulation of the referendum and electoral legislation. Borut Pahor, the President of Slovenia, pointed out that if the state does not reorganize itself, alternative institutions will be created”, he added.

Some protesters estimated that Slovenia’s signing the UN Compact on Migration is a form of treason. “This is also recognized by top politicians who squeezed the tail between their legs and entrusted the signing of the declaration to an unimportant state official. If you want the Marrakesh Declaration to become part of the Slovenian legal order, it should be ratified by the National Assembly. This ratification, however, will not be made possible since, before the second reading, there is a possibility to file an initiative for a referendum”, says Bernard Brščič, a publicist, who, despite different facts, insists that the agreement is an international treaty, which is not ratified, yet it will have legal consequences.

“This is about the cowardice of the Slovenian government. If the Prime Minister was a man, he would go to Marrakesh and sign the treason himself”, Brščič said. Other protesters, critical of politics and the media, also agreed with him.
