Police Use Teargas against Massive Anti-Govt Rally in Slovenia
Unrest in Slovenia is continuing for a fourth month on, with tens of thousands of protesters gathering in major cities, including capital Ljubljana, to request the resignation of PM Janez Jansa.
Late Friday evening, police used teargas to dispell a 20,000 strong crowd gathered around the Parliament in Ljubljana.
Protesters have requested Jansa's resignation, and have accused the government of widespread corruption, after it was revealed that the PM had failed to declare income worth more than EUR 200,000.
Young people are also protesting the worsened economic and social conditions in Slovenia.
While the protest has the ousting of Jansa's cabinet as its specific goal, it has taken a broader anti-capitalist and anti-establishment thrust.
