Event

The Opposition for Serbia (SzS) has called for a protest in Belgrade on Friday, December 13, to denounce the lack of freedom of expression in the media. Participants plan to gather from 12:00 to 20:00 (local time) in front of the public broadcaster RTS building. Protesters did not receive authorization to hold the demonstration.

Heightened security measures and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the RTS building during the protest. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Individuals in Belgrade, notably near the RTS building, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
