Friday protests continue across Serbia Izvor: N1

The 1 in 5 Million protests continued on Friday in towns across Serbia.

The protesters in the northern city of Novi Sad organized a Live Evening News in front of the state-controlled Radio TV Vojvodina (RTV). A crowd of students held their hands in the air mimicking handcuffs.  

The protest in the southern city of Nis focused on the Serbian state TV (RTS) with the crowd marching past the RTS correspondent offices and the local branch of the Constitutional Court. Popular Party MP Sanda Raskovic Ivic and Democratic Party leader Zoran Lutovac addressed the protesters before the march, calling them to come to Belgrade for the April 13 protest.  

Earlier in the day, protest organizers in Belgrade said the van with the sound system that they used to call the RTS managers and editors to resign had been stopped by the communal police and fined for not having a permit to advertise in public.

Protest organizer Filip Cvijetinovic told the Beta news agency that they had registered their performance with the police and added that the decision to fine them was political and was a case of suppressing freedom of speech. He said one of the communal policemen had threatened to charge them with obstructing the police if they did not shut down the sound system.
