The union of environmental organizations of Serbia has organised a new protest with roadblocks across the country to express opposition against lithium mining and Rio Tinto's "Jadar" project.

There were minor incidents in Belgrade and Novi Sad, when drivers whose vehicles were stopped due to the blockade tried to verbally physically confront the protesters.

The organisers of the blockade announced the “radicalization” of the protest against the exploitation of lithium in Serbia for next week. They said one big protest will most likely be organised at a single location in order to increase the pressure on the government.

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic stated earlier that the Government is close to mankind a decision to annul all permits it gave to Rio Tinto.
