STUDENTS CONTINUE PROTEST.

On Feb. 24, more than 10,000 Belgrade University students protested in the city center. The students again marched through the busiest streets and passed by the state television building. Students request the recognition of the citizens' will expressed in the elections and the dismissal of the Belgrade university president, Dragutin Velickovic. The protest rally began at 2 p.m. in front of the Philosophy College where students acted out a plot-line called Back in the Benches, symbolically showing that they would return to classes, if Belgrade university president, Dragutin Velickovic, and student vice-president, Vojin Djurdjevic, are dismissed. Students placed benches in front of the university administration building and listened to two lectures on political manipulation and civic disobedience, given by Philology College professor, Ljubisa Rajic, and Political sciences professor, Milan Podunavac.
