Student Protest '96 - '97
February 9th, 1997
Once again the students gathered in front of the School of Philosophy i order to protest against the manipulations on the November 17 elections. The gathering was quite large this evening, and there were about 20,000 students gathered by 6.30pm, when the program began. The students were greeted by Zika Milenkovic, singer and musician, and Voja Brajovic, famous actor. The final speaker was Ceda from the Initiative Board, who in formed the students of the route for the evening, as usual.
Vasina - Kolarceva - Srpskih Vladara - Beogradska - Bulevar Revolucije - Takovska - Ivo Lole Ribar - Cetinjska - 29 Novembar - Vasina was the route for the night. We went past the home of Rastko Kostic, the injured student, once again. He waved form his window to the passing procession, bandages and all. As usual there were no incidents along the walk, but there were many students in paramedics uniforms, reading SUMC (Student urgency trauma center), who's job is to make sure that the students and citizens who joined them stay in good health.
