In SERBIA, everyone has the right to express their opinion in the way they consider correct, including through protests. However, no one has the right to endanger other people by protesting, interfere with their way of life and restrict their movement – said the deputy mayor of Belgrade, Goran Vesić.
Unfortunately, that happened yesterday in Belgrade. Several hundred people, who are a minority in our society, tried to block the roads and thus tortured tens of thousands of people, endangering their right to free movement because they could not get where they intended. Not to mention the public transport that was delayed due to their blockade. Did they think about how many children were in the convoy of vehicles while they were blocking the highway? I will always stand behind the men and women of Belgrade, and no one will be allowed to make fun of them.
There are other ways to express an opinion or dissatisfaction but not by restricting the right of movement to others. This is the case in every democratic country in the world. Think about what would happen in Germany if someone thought of blocking the highway.
Therefore, on behalf of Belgrade, I am asking those who blocked the roads yesterday to find another way to express their dissatisfaction, and not by taking revenge on the citizens of Belgrade – Vesić concluded.
