We Won’t Give Jadar Up association announces protest against Rio Tinto


Representative of the We Won't Give Jadar Up association Marija Petkovic told the daily Nova that a protest against the opening of a lithium mine has been scheduled for June 28, St Vitus Day.

“There will be some surprises for the municipal authorities and for Rio Tinto,” said Petkovic, a local from the village of Gornje Nedeljice.

She added that the association has “received a tip” that the authorities want to adopt the Spatial Plan secretly, and that, if this happens, the protest might be organized even before St Vitus Day.
