Anniversary of the “Prozor” protest
Novi Sad, August 30, 2011 (NDNV) - The Independent Journalists' Association of Vojvodina (NDNV) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the "Prozor" protest on September 2. The longest and largest protest against repression of the freedom of speech in the history of journalism in Serbia took place two decades ago in Novi Sad. The protest was a response of independent, pacifistic journalists to the warmongering propaganda of the state TV and other media controlled by the regime of Slobodan Milosevic. The protest lasted for a month and more than 100 of most prominent politicians, intellectuals, artists and journalists from all parts of the country took part in it. The protest took a form of an alternative to the TV news programme aired by the Channel 1 of Radio-Television Serbia (RTS).
