The Montenegrin police has banned a gathering by a Montenegrin patriotic organization in the country’s old capital Cetinje on February 13.

The Montenegrin Culture Network called a patriotic gathering for February 13 under the slogan Together for a Civic and European Montenegro. It warned that the country had been under the same kind of attack that “took away its sovereignty in a cruel and perfidious way” after World War 1 when the Kingdom of Montenegro became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes under a Serbian king. The organization claimed that it had been contacted via social networks by a large number of people who demanded a patriotic gathering to show that “there are more of us who want Montenegro to be a civic and European state”.  

The Montenegrin Culture Network said it wants the gatherings to become a regular event every Thursday.  

Followers of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) have been organizing religious processions in protest over the adopting of a law on religious communities which critics claim is aimed at seizing church property.
