November 30, 2021
Protests in Serbia 2020-2021. years represent a wave of mostly heterogeneous and mutually uncoordinated protests, which began in late April 2020 during the coronary virus pandemic in Serbia. On April 26, 2020, at 8:05 p.m., by banging on sherpas and playing loud music, until 9:05 p.m., protests began in cities across Serbia to protest the ban on movement and the six-week curfew introduced in mid-March (the so-called . "Noise against dictatorship"). At the beginning of May, the government eased the measures banning the movement, only to abolish them completely after a few days. In mid-June, there was a recurrence of the epidemic, and at the beginning of July, the government returned certain epidemiological measures, which led to greater dissatisfaction of citizens and a wave of violence and mass riots both in Belgrade and throughout Serbia. The protests are an indirect continuation of the previous wave of public discontent, which definitely ended with the outbreak of the pandemic in March. The new wave of protests was characterized by markedly greater use of repressive measures by law enforcement forces than in all previous demonstrations since 2000.
