As they say, the protests were organized through social networks, and the gathering was announced by several groups of caterers, reports the “Kliks” portal.

According to the same source, there are several police officers next to the Sarajevo Canton building.

The gathered citizens announce that they will gather in large numbers in the same place tomorrow, and by chanting, they sent a message to the cantonal authorities to buy vaccines.

H1 states that the MUP of the Sarajevo Canton told them that they had information about the gathering of citizens.

Edin Forto, the Prime Minister of the Sarajevo Canton, announced today that this canton will be “closed” from Friday due to the worsened epidemiological situation.

“There are several things that have happened. The new strain is more aggressive, more virulent, it is much easier to develop severe clinical pictures than the one we are used to in the previous part of the pandemic. “Hospital capacities are full, the health system is on the border, if the growth continues – we will not be able to take care of those with a lighter picture,” said Forto.

The owner of one catering facility said that he has 40 employees.

“Our government has thought of this well, all the workers are numbered, registered, we have duties.” There are 30 people in the facility, they punish us every day. I set aside 50,000 KM per month just for salaries. How to make money from 30 people and 30 coffees. There is no need to say anything, our people see that it is pure ruin, our government counts only mathematics and chairs. “They get salaries and we earn them,” he said, as reported N1.

The representative of the KS musicians, Danijel Džafić, pointed out that the “prime minister lied” to them, and that they turned out to be naive.

“We are naive. They planned to close on the weekends. The Prime Minister lied to us. When caterers don’t work, neither do we. Why only KS? What is better Konjic and Lukavica? Tonight, the concert of Petar Graš in Mostar, and what is in Sarajevo “, asks Džafić.

Dzevad Topic, the owner of the catering facility, reminded that they had two meetings with the Government.

“We are deceived now. We are asking for a state of emergency from tomorrow. What is the difference, from tomorrow to Monday and from Monday to Friday? Is it a virus will not be? “Those who receive salaries, should give up 30 percent at the expense of small businessmen,” he pointed out.

Also, one of the caterers asked the KS Government to let them work or buy vaccines.

“If they imprison us, they should pay for it. They are imprisoned in Germany and get help. It was promised, and the stamp was not obtained here either. The hotels got a lot of money “, he stated.

According to those gathered, they agree to a “lockdown”, but for the Government of the Sarajevo Canton to help them financially. If that doesn’t happen, they are announcing even more mass protests for tomorrow.
