The protest was held in the southern part of Kosovska Mitrovica.

According to Kosovo police, around 2,000 Albanians attended the rally. They carried Albanian and U.S. flags and chanted messages against the Kosovo government and prime minister.

The Self-Determination Movement activists said that the Belgrade-Priština negotiations were harmful to Kosovo.

Self-Determination Movement leader Albin Kurti said the protest was not aimed against Serbs but against Serbia that “is instrumentalizinh citizens against Albanians”.

He said that the movement would hold protests against the Kosovo government for treason if an agreement was reached on April 2 in Brussels.

Kurti noted that Kosovska Mitrovica could not be partitioned.

The rally went without incidents. KFOR troops and Kosovo police special units ROSU were present during the protest.

Serbs gathered on the north side of the bridge dividing the town and watched the protest.
