”Enough”: citizens march to condemn violence and ask for justice on 20 May 2011.

Citizens March, Condemning Domestic Violence

On 20 May 2011, KWN organized a march to condemn violence and ask for justice. The recent murder of Diana Kastrati (age 27) deeply concerned KWN and the citizens of Kosovo. This was the fourth women this year who died as a result of domestic violence.

During the march, citizens signed a petition, which demanded:

  1. Immediate action by the Kosovo Police to find the perpetrator and gather testimonies against him;
  2. Investigative treatment of this and other unresolved cases of domestic violence, like the murder of Dr. Igballe Llalloshi, which has remained unresolved for more than a year; and
  3. Commitment of citizens to actively condemn and openly talk against domestic violence occurring in our own, our neighbor’s and our friends’ households.

The petition was sent to the police and the Judicial Council of Kosovo demanding immediate implementation of these requests. The signatures were collected during the march as well as through e-mail and the KWN website.
