1-4 June 2019
Weekly protests are currently taking place in Belgrade and some other towns and cities. Generally, most protests remain peaceful, but they can occasionally turn violent, especially where there is a potential for far-right infiltration or hooliganism. Protests can also lead to significant disruption, including to public transport. Keep up to date with local developments and avoid any large crowds and demonstrations.
The "#1od5miliona" anti-government protest movement is planning another demonstration in Belgrade and Kruševac on Saturday, June 1. Supporters in Belgrade are slated to gather at the Terazijske fountain at 18:00 (local time) before marching to the RTS state media building. In Kruševac, protesters will march from the Square of Kosovo Heroes from 17:00 to the Trade Union Hall. While previous demonstrations have generally been held without major incident, heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated in the vicinity of the march. Clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out.
