Several thousand citizens gathered in Belgrade on Saturday in a new protest held under the slogan ‘Against the violence – stop to bloody shirts.’

Participants of the protest walk said they would win against President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic just like they did against late President of former Yugoslavia Slobodan Milosevic.

The Saturday protest was organised after the last weekend’s protest when citizens and opposition leaders gathered to raise their voice against violence and warn about the incident that involved opposition politician Borko Stefanovic last month.

The protest walk passed by the building which is the seat of the President of Serbia, the Parliament building and finally the building of public broadcaster RTS.

After they reached the public broadcaster’s building, the protestors stopped and started shouting and throwing snowballs at the building.

Their banner saying ‘Stop to bloody shirts’ was replaced by the one that reads ‘One in the five million.’

The protest caused blockage in the traffic in the central parts of Belgrade, but police recorded no incident.

Among the protestors were representatives of the opposition parties including Vuk Jeremic, Dragan Djilas, Borko Stefanovic, Janko Veselinovic, Milos Jovanovic and Bosko Obradovic.
