10 000 signatures for petition to turn Albanian beaches public

Nisma Thurje has managed to gather 10,000 signatures for a petition to have public beaches throughout Albania.

Endri Shabani from Nisma Thurje said that there are boundaries restricting Albanians from entering their own public beaches while emphasizing that it is time for MPs to show whose side they’re really on – the citizens’ side or on the side of a small minority of businessmen.

“10,000 Albanians have signed the petition for all beaches to become public. From Saranda to Shkoder, Albanian beaches are surrounded by boundaries and entry fees. Albanians are eager to go to their beaches, in their own country. But, as an Albanian, you get excluded from your own land, you are trampled in your own home. Every Albanian MP today, has the historic chance to show that they are here, to make the voice of citizens heard, and to protect the less fortunate, – said Shabani.
