Protecting the environment is one of the main challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. The city of Tetovo in Macedonia has been one of the most polluted cities in Europe in recent years and the air pollution level has risen 20 times beyond the European limits. The local population for a long time has not been aware of the level of pollution and the consequences that arise from it. In order to change this sad state of affairs, we created the movement Eco Guerilla and since then it has organized a series of activities such as mass protests, publicity campaigns and intense lobbying in international organisations. During the course of these activities, the members of the movement have received threats from the government which instead of fulfilling its legal duties to protect the environment and the life of its citizens, it continued to tolerate the work of a factory that is the worst pollutant in the country.
