STUDENTS MARCH AGAIN

Approximately 20,000 Belgrade university students walked through the streets of Zvezdara municipality on Feb. 10. The students passed through downtown Belgrade undisturbed by the police. A member of the student protest organizing committee, Cedomir Jovanovic, said before the protest march that many ask a frivolous question of what will happen after Tuesday (when the Serbian legislature should approve the special law recognizing opposition victories in the local elections). "Wednesday will come after Tuesday, and the protests will continue. We have been playing a political game for two and a half months, but we have made the rules ourselves - no trade and no concessions," said Jovanovic. Belgrade university students demand Belgrade University President Dragutin Velickovic's resignation and the reinstatement of the local election results.
