2015 anti-government protest in Montenegro

2015 anti-government protest in Montenegro
Location Podgorica, Montenegro
Date 17 October 2015 – ongoing

2015 anti-government protest in Montenegro began in mid-October 2015[1] and culminated in mass violence on 24 October 2015 in Montenegro capital Podgorica.

After thousands of people rallied to protest government corruption and demand a transitional government and resignation of Prime Minister Milo Đukanović, who has held prime ministerial or presidential positions for most of the time since 1990, the police intervened tear-gassing the demonstrators.[2] Montenegrin police fired tear gas at opposition supporters, while chasing away the demonstrators with armored vehicles.[3]
