  • Description

    BELGRADE STUDENTS TODAY (TUESDAY) OCCUPIED THE CITY UNIVERSITY'S PHILOSOPHY FACULTY BUILDING, AFTER A SECOND DAY OF CLASHES WITH THE POLICE, IN WHICH MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED. POLICE RELAXED THEIR CORDON AROUND THE UNIVERSITY TODAY, ALTHOUGH STUDENTS YESTERDAY WERE ATTACKED BY POLICE IN THE CITY CENTRE AS THEY WERE MAKING THEIR WAY BACK TO THE UNIVERSITY GROUNDS.

    POLICE KEPT A CLOSE GUARD OVER THE PHILOSOPHY FACULTY BUILDING YESTERDAY, BUT TODAY THEY PULLED BACK AND ALLOWED STUDENTS AND LECTURERS TO MOVE BACK AND FORTH THROUGH THEIR CORDON.

    THE STUDENTS HAVE LEVELLED THE BLAME FOR POLICE "BRUTALITY" AGAINST THE FEDERAL AND SERBIAN INTERIOR MINISTERS AND THE BELGRADE POLICE CHIEF. THEY HAVE DEMANDED THEIR DISMISSAL AND HAVE CALLED FOR THE RESIGNATION OF NEWSPAPER AND RADIO EDITORS WHO THEY CLAIM HAVE ISSUED DISTORTED REPORTS OF THE STUDENT PROTEST MOVEMENT.

    BOTH THE STUDENTS AND POLICE HAVE EXCHANGED ASSURANCES THAT THERE WILL BE NO MORE UNPROVOKED VIOLENCE FROM EITHER SIDE. THE STUDENTS MEANWHILE HAVE RENAMED BELGRADE UNIVERSITY THE "RED UNIVERSITY OF KARL MARK". A LARGE BANNER PROCLAIMS: "WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE RED BOUGEOISIE".
