Student Protest '96 - '97
January 2nd, 1997
The students gathered for the second time in the New Year. Several thousand protesters were disappointed not to be addressed by any speakers. Even so, the "Noise is in Fashion" project took root in the whole community, and the whole city followed the students in racket-making, in order to create "interference" at 7.30, during the RTS News. People made noise from their teraces and windows, mostly banging pots and pans.
The police were back from their holidays, also. The walk was a short and encircled one, because police cordons blocked the whole area around the Plato and the Student Square. The students made two circles through Knez Mihajlova street and around the Student Square, smiling at the police officers.
There were no incidents and the gathering has been scheduled for tomorrow.
