Mounted police used teargas and truncheons to disperse a crowd of
several thousand protesters gathered outside the Serbian parliament in
Belgrade, opposed to the government’s announcement of a new coronavirus
lockdown.

President Aleksandar Vucic announced on Tuesday that a new curfew would
go into effect on Friday and last over the weekend, after 300 new
Covid-19 cases and 13 deaths – the most since the pandemic began, local
media reported.

This prompted an estimated ten thousand people to gather outside the
parliament building and demand Vucic’s resignation, starting around 10
pm local time.

Opposition politicians tried to direct the protests into a revolution
against the government, urging
<https://twitter.com/BoskoObradovic/status/1280616763487633418> all of
Serbia to /“go to Belgrade, now or never!”/ and telling people to
/“seize their freedom.” /

Former foreign minister Vuk Jeremic appeared among the demonstrators at
one point, before he was told to /“go away”/ and received a slap upside
the head.

The protest may have started over Covid-19 restrictions, but its
participants appeared to be motivated in part by frustration with
Serbia’s politics, often denouncing Vucic as a “NATO lackey” and his
government as a /“colony.”/

**Journalist Boris Malagurski, who has been critical of the government,
posted a photo of the protest with the caption /“Serbia has risen.”/

Many of the protesters were young. One young man told reporters he was
there because his father died of the virus due to lack of ventilators.
An older man, with blood flowing down his face, said he was a father of
two fighting for a better future for his children – possibly a comment
on /“For our children,”/ the ruling Progressive party’s slogan in last
month’s parliamentary election.

Vucic’s party won a commanding majority, with a turnout just below 50
percent. The president himself has not commented on the unrest, while
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that police would /“restore order.”/

**Serbia imposed one of the strictest lockdowns in Europe starting

mid-March, turning to Russia and China for help after the EU blocked
Belgrade from buying medical supplies. Easter was canceled, and the
elections scheduled for late April were postponed to June. The state of
emergency and the lockdown were lifted on May 6, but masks, social
distancing and other mitigation rules have remained in effect.

Tuesday’s demonstrations were the largest such protest in almost a
decade. Serbs have been reluctant to organize mass protests since the
October 2000 'color revolution,' which turned out to have been a regime
change operation backed by the US.

**Only a few hundred people remained in the park outside the parliament
as of 1 am, before the final cavalry charge forced them several blocks
back.
