Protest against oppression of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija

Protest against oppression of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija

Belgrade, Dec 22 (Prensa Latina) A demonstration against the oppression of the Serbian population and the violation of their rights in Kosovo and Metohija is taking place on the administrative line of Serbia and Kosovo, the newspaper Vecherne Novosti stressed.

According to the source, the demonstrators stretched a 250-meter-long Serbian flag and a banner with an appeal to the prime minister of the unrecognized Kosovo, Albin Kurti, to respect their civil rights.

Kurti, Kosovo is not your personal property, but our inheritance, one of the protesters’ placards proclaimed.

The public present, sung Serbian national songs, while long columns of cars and pedestrians joined the demonstration from Zvecan, Zubin Potok and the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica.

The situation escalated dramatically on December 6, when special forces of an unrecognized formation began to seize the premises of election commissions in northern Kosovo and Metohija.

On the other hand, the Serbian population organized spontaneously and expelled the Kosovars, who crossed the Ibar River. On December 8, some 350 Kosovo police entered the Serb-populated north of the province in armored vehicles and blocked the northern part of Mitrovica.

Kosovo police in Kosovska Mitrovica on December 10 arrested former Serb policeman Dejan Pantic on trumped-up charges.

In response, the Serb population staged mass protests and blocked roads in several settlements with barricades.

Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia’s president, stated on the 10th of December that Serbia would send a request to the NATO,sponsored International Mission in Kosovo and Metohija, to deploy 1,000 Serbian security forces in the region in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1244.
