ZAGREB, June 10, 2020 - One of the coordinators of Zagreb's Walk for Life, Andrea Kotnik announced on Wednesday that this year's march would be held in Zagreb on June 27 as well as in seven other cities, including three new ones, but on different dates.

The 5th Walk for Life in Zagreb will be held on June 27. Marchers will gather outside the Croatian National Theatre and march through the city centre, Kotnik said.

This year's motto is "Protecting life without discrimination". Kotnik said that during the corona crisis special attention was directed at the elderly but they wanted care to be extended to everyone, particularly the elderly.

She said that citizens were jointly responsible for how society, politics and the law treated every life, from conception to death, calling on citizens to join the march.

Asked whether the walk was routinely used as a campaign tool ahead of parliamentary elections, Kotnik said that date is selected at the start of the year and that was the case this year too.

Another coordinator, Luka Hudincec, said that the walk would also be held in Rijeka, Osijek, Split, and Zadar as well as in three new cities, namely Imotski, Sisak and Slavonski Brod. The coordinators in each of these cities will select a date for the walk while taking care of all protective measures in light of the coronavirus epidemic, adding that he hopes next year the walk would be held simultaneously everywhere in May.

"We wish to remind those responsible for the protection of life and that everyone has the right to live without discrimination - old, young, those with higher or lower education, and particularly the unborn," he said.
