TIRANA, November 25 – Within the framework of the 111th anniversary of Independence Day, the Red and Black Parade 2023 will take place on the “Dëshmorët e Kombit” Boulevard on November 28.
Prime Minister Edi Rama published on social networks on Saturday the 3D images of how the parade will take place on this day marked for the Albanian nation, as he wrote that, “the idea came from a group of young people in the diaspora”.
“An idea that came from a group of young people in the diaspora will gather Albanians from all over the world in a single parade on November 28. If the weather helps a little, it will start at noon on the “Dëshmorët e Kombit” Boulevard,” said Rama.
The Executive Director of the Union of Albanian Municipalities in the Region, Andriola Kambo, in an interview for Report TV, showed details of the parade that is moving from New York to Albania for the first time.
“Tirana has experienced a tourist boom. We are trying to promote all Albanian-speaking cities from the capital of all Albanians. Where better to celebrate on independence days. Let’s promote the artistic values and groups that belong to this parade,” said Kambo. This event aims to promote it, as Kambo prefers to call it “networking of Albanians” wherever there is one.
“About 5,000 people are part of this parade. We are talking about a parade for the first time of its kind. We have 47 Arbëresh municipalities. Almost all of Tirana is blocked. We also have the diaspora that is becoming a part. They are coming from New York to participate,” she said.
For 15 years, the organization of the “Albanian Roots” association has clothed New York with the cloak of the flag, and has served to give messages of unity to Albanians. /argumentum.al
