Gay Pride marsh attacked in Serbia
#1
10 October 2010.

Scores arrested in Belgrade, Serbia after anti-gay riot.

Anti-gay protesters have fought running battles with police in an effort to disrupt a Gay Pride march in Belgrade - the first in the city since 2001. Reports told of gangs of skinheads roaming the streets, throwing petrol bombs and setting off firecrackers as police battled to hold them back. The AFP news agency reported them as saying. "Death to homosexuals."

Democratic Party spokesperson Jelana Trivan said the violence had nothing to do with moral values.
"These are hooligan gangs which must be punished severely," Ms Trivan said.
The mayor of Belgrade, Dragan Djilas, said the rioters had used Gay Pride as an excuse for a brawl.

A gay pride march planned last year was cancelled amid fears of violence.
On Saturday, several thousand people had protested against the march. Right-wing groups say that homosexuality is contrary to Serbian religious and family values. The Serbian Orthodox Church condemned the parade on Friday but also warned against violence against participants.

Another example of using hate, spread by the right wing conservatives and the church again.

Yes. Every time I read about what happens elsewhere I am grateful that we live where we do, but I also am aware that just a few changes in circumstance could mean a very different scene here at home.

Re the title of your thread, I would just like to point out to PA that I am ok and have, in fact, never been to Serbia.

made me lol Big Grin

although to stay on topic, this does indeed show how lucky we are to live where we live. I think the worst thing you could get in my school, is being called a fag, and even then that would be rare. but to think people acctually throwing petrol bombs :/ its a sick world we livee in!
