The opposition says it won't stop in its drive to chip away at Milosevic's power, and once again there were 30,000 student protesters in the streets Thursday as if to underline that fact.
Also, Radmila Milentijevic, a hard-line Milosevic loyalist, was appointed to the information ministry, and began by pointing out that, contrary to appearances, most students are not protesting in the streets.
Students have been among the most vocal and visible demonstrators for the past 12 weeks as they have protested election fraud and demanded the firing of the Socialist rector of the University of Belgrade.
