The donation of blood was also organized for those who chose to do so.

After gathering at Slavija, and covering most of its area, the students continued their march overjoyed because they were free too stroll through the city unimpeded. The route lead us through Srpskih Vladara street and then up Kneza Milosa street. The procession was rapidly increasing in size as we advanced through Belgrade so that by the end of the protest walk, the number of people in the procession was over 10,000. After arriving at Plato, there was a short program during which several professors, who took part in the walk, addressed the students. Information on tomorrows action followed.
