Montenegro Students Protest

19 February 2008 Podgorica_ More than a hundred pupils of the Technical and Economic Secondary School in Podgorica protested on Tuesday against Kosovo's declaration of independence.

Forming an orderly procession the students marched to the US embassy and the city center, carrying Serbian flags and banners reading “Kosovo is the heart of Serbia” and “Serbia, Serbia”.

They said they would continue to protest over the next three days.

The Ministry of Education warned that there was a danger that the absence of pupils from lectures could be exploited for political and other purposes. It appealed to parents and school directors to address this issue and try to get students not to abandon their academic courses.

“Pedagogic measures in line with the Law will be taken in response to each unwarranted absence,” the Ministry said in a satement issued on Tuesday.

In the meantime, Montenegrin opposition parties have called a rally for Friday, February 22 to protest against Kosovo's independence.

The rally, to be held in front of the Parliament building, was proposed by Serb List, SL, and is being supported by the other parties from the former bloc for a common state with Montenegro.

Support from various Serb associations in Montenegro is also anticipated.

What was once called the tavern of the Adriatic now looks more like a bar that barely survived a brawl, but deep underneath, Albania’s favourite holiday destination hides some forgotten treasures.

It’s not every day we have a genuine war in the middle of Europe involving medieval-style sieges. Instead, almost all we have is rows of history books and memoirs written by the likes of Lord Owen and various generals. Why no Hemingway in Bosnia?
