Montenegro Students Protest
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.
