Protest in Belgrade on Wednesday (July 12, 2016)

July 12, 2016

U.S. Embassy Belgrade informs U.S. citizens that the citizens’ initiative “Let’s Not Drown Belgrade” will hold a protest against the recent demolition of buildings in Savamala on Wednesday, July 13, at 6:00 p.m. in front of Belgrade City Hall at Dragoslava Jovanovica #2.  After the protest, participants will walk through Belgrade from City Hall to Nikole Pasica Square, down Kneza Milosa Street to Nemanjina Street, and stop on Hercegovacka Street at the site of the Savamala demolition.  The official estimate of expected event participants is 4,000 to 5,000.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
