On 31 March 2018, a group of Cham took to the streets of Vlorë, Albania to raise awareness of the plight of the Cham community and the continuing struggle for greater respect for human rights and self-determination for Chameria.
The demonstration carried the flags of all the supporters of the cause for Chameria, as well as many boards and signs of the leader of the nation, Festim Lato, the president of the republic of Chameria.
Many youth participated in the demonstration, showing the viability, vitality and great support that the movement for a free Chameria has among the Cham people and their supporters among the Albanian population. Besides the political message that demonstrations like this has it also shows the richness and durability of the cultural heritage of the Cham. Traditional song and dance were an integral part of this peaceful demonstration. In the past months many demonstrations have been organised and this activism will continue until the objectives of a free Chameria have been achieved.
