A large crowd gathered in front of the Church of Christ’s Ascension in the Montenegrin capital on Thursday evening marching through the streets to continue the months of protests over the law on freedom of confession which critics claim will allow the seizure of temples and properties from the Serbian Orthodox Church.

The crowd shouted slogans against President Milo Djukanovic along with shouts of We Won’t Give Up Holy Sites and Kosovo is Serbia..  

Podgorica daily Vijesti reported that the crowd were not wearing face masks which are mandatory across the country for anyone over the age of seven both indoors and outdoors. The daily said that its reporters were told that the crowd were there spontaneously.  

Under existing regulations, groups of more than 40 people are banned outdoors and of more than 20 people indoors.

Montenegrins are going to the polls on Sunday to elect a new parliament.
