‘Ecological Uprising’ ends in Belgrade, protestors demand concrete steps

Tanjug/ Rade Prelić

The civil protest called "Ecological Uprising" ended in front of the Serbian Radio and Television, after a walk through the central streets of Belgrade.

The organizers of the rally demanded the introduction of a moratorium on the construction of small hydroelectric power plants, the suspension of deforestation in Serbia, as well as more intensive afforestation.

They called for an end to „misuse of money for ecology“, for authorities to „stop ignoring“ environmental impact studies, such as the construction of mini-hydropower plants on the environment, and for citizens to be better informed about environmental issues.

They also demanded respect for the Constitution and the law, including the right to a healthy environment, as well as the removal of those in charge in that area due to „harmful acts and omissions.“

During the protest walk through the central city streets, the citizens stopped at the representative office of the company Rio Tinto and in front of the building of the Serbian Radio and Television.
