Tens of Thousands Rally Against Serbia's Populist Leader, Warn of Protest 'Radicalization'
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) Tens of thousands of people rallied again in downtown Belgrade on Friday, demanding the resignation of Serbia's populist president and warned of radicalization of the peaceful protest if their demands aren't met all in the wake of two mass shootings that stunned the nation.
The protesters carried posters of President Aleksandar Vucic and his close ally Prime Minister Ana Brnabic dressed in black-and-white striped prison uniforms.
They chanted slogans Vucic Go Away and protest leaders said their demands, which include the resignation of top security officials and the withdrawal of national broadcasting rights to pro-government TV stations that promote violence, must be met by the end of the next week.
They said that if their demands were not fulfilled by the deadline, the peaceful protests will assume a new, more radical form. They didn't reveal what the radicalization of the protests could include.
