RARE VICTORY OF PEOPLE OVER GOVERNMENT? BUT BEWARE OF THE DEVIL YOU DON’T KNOW Every once in a while there is some good news that warms the cockles of one's heart. It is very rare these days anywhere in the world to see that democracy actually words in fact and nor just in word.

And again in 1996 when the Belgrade students and others marched against the communist dictator #2 (Milosevic). Only this time, the young and the old are united in their protests against the Vučić regime and his Serbian Progressive Party.
