Albanian demonstrations of 1968 in Macedonia are part of the nationwide resistance in the former Yugoslavia. These have developed as a result of anti-Albanian politics after the Second World War. In this paper I will try to deal with the events of 1968 (with special emphasis on the events of Tetovo) in two aspects: -in the aspect of Yugoslavian internal relations and -in the aspect of international relations. In the aspect of domestic politics, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in the Cold War period, in the sixties, tried to play the role of a "promoter" in the Non-Aligned Movement. Such a policy was in function of camouflaging internal problems in fragile interethnic relations. Albanians were in a position of discrimination since the end of World War II. In 1966, in the Brioni Plenum,the time when from the political scene was discharged one of the greatest anti-Albanian politicians, Aleksandar Rankoviç, the way for the outbreak of the Albanian revolt against the systematic oppression is opened. In the aspect of international relations, 1968 is the year of many crises, among which a special place took the student movements in different countries of Europe, with political leftist tendencies, in whose manifestations dominated the opposition to the Vietnam War. Events in Czechoslovakia were a special chapter in international developments, as well as Soviet military intervention. The events above exposed the sovjet doctrine of intervention, a process that had just begun, so the beginning of the end of the communist system.
