The non-governmental organization “Freedom to the People Movement” has launched a petition for Montenegro’s withdrawal from NATO, and within just three days, more than two thousand people have signed it.

“NATO is an organization that is against peace, an organization which serves the geopolitical interests of corporate neo-imperialism. Montenegro’s illegitimate accession to NATO has made our country an accomplice of an international criminal organization, which is responsible, through its unlawful actions, for the destruction and deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people around the world, citizens of Montenegro included,” reads the petition entitled “Montenegro’s Withdrawal from NATO”.

The president of this movement, Boško Vukićević, told Politika that Montenegro was “pushed into NATO in an illegal and illegitimate way, against the will of its people,” so this current action is a message to the international community.
