Serbia-Protest

Opposition supporters gathered outside the presidential building during a
press conference of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, a day after
opponents broke into the state-run RTS television building, demanding to
address the population, in images aired live. There have been weekly
opposition protests since December against what they describe as Vucic’s
slide towards autocratic rule, while accusing RTS of pandering to the
ruling party and demanding more airtime for opposing views.
