The second evening gathering for the weekend took place as scheduled. The students gathered at the Plato where the mobile loud speaker was set up. There were no guest speakers announced to address the students so only the service information was read and the Cedomir Jovanovic from the Initiative Board informed the students about the route of the evening's walk.

The "Walk"

The route of this walk was the standard "media walk". This meant that the students passed by the main media companies on Belgrade, government and independent. The route was down Vasina and Kolarceva to Srpskih Vladara, into Kneza Milosa and Takovska. There the procession passed by the RTS building and turned into "Grandma Olga's street", officially known as Ivo Lola Ribar, and Makedonska street. Makedonska is full of different media, starting with Radio Belgrade and Politika newspaper, and ending with Radio Index and Radio B-92. The column then returned to the Plato via the Republic Square and Vasina.

There were no incidents noted during the student walk, although rumors of great police forced concentrated in the city center could be heard.
