In 1989 the Autonomy of Kosovo was revoked, Schools were closed, workers were fired, repression of local people became increasingly aggressive, national rights were denied and Albanian being risked the extinction. By another hand local resistance could not be quelled. Education system was taking place secretly in-home schools, protests, demonstrations were taking place throughout the country calling for Freedom, Democracy, Equality which escalated with an armed resistance as the only way for survival and liberation.
