“Anti-government rallies, organised via social media, were held on Tuesday evening in more than 15 towns across Serbia. The largest demonstrations took place in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Nis and Kragujevac, with thousands attending” the message says.
Protesters, mostly young people, across the state had no specific demands but were protesting against what they referred to as president-elect, current Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic’s “dictatorship,” it was reported.
Demonstrators also protested against the alleged state media control and electoral fraud during presidential elections held on April 2.
At least 15,000 people attended the rally in Belgrade, bringing traffic in the city to a standstill.
In the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad about 2,000 people took the streets during the protests organised by the Student’s Movement.
In the southern Serbian town of Nis, around 5,000 mainly young people who organised via social media took the streets demanding change. However, pensioners also joined the rally saying that they do not want their kids and grandchildren to leave the country for work.
Thus, a fairly large number of residents of Serbia refuse to recognize the victory of Aleksandar Vucic in presidential election.
Earlier it was reported that three people hurt during mass rallies on Day of Dignity and Freedom in Kyiv. 2 of the victims were injured, one man asked ambulance for help from due to stress.
