More than 400 actors, musicians and artists have signed a petition supporting the weekly anti-government civic protests which have spread across Serbia, one of the signatories told N1.

The petition said they support the civic protests in defence of freedom of speech and creativity. “We are defending the basic principles of democracy and fighting against the abuse of the media in dealing with political rivals,” it said.  

The petition also demands independence for institutions and the right to principled criticism and the right to point out problems in society.
