Fifth Serbia against Violence Protest (BETAPHOTO/AMIR HAMZAGIC)

Serbia Against Violence protesters in front of the seat of the attorney general showed their sentiments toward Attorney General Zagorka Dolovac by booing, using whistles and vuvuzelas and chanting "resign."

Rally moderator Smiljan Banjac told the demonstrators that "the attorney general has been turning a blind eye to scandals for years, and Dolovac is the blindest." Jurist Sofija Mandic said "the system is rotten and dangerous, lying in wait for a new victim every day." She also said that "organized state violence against the citizens" would stop in Serbia when the attorney general became independent.

The protest concluded with a reading of demands and the organizers saying "we will not give up." The demands include that Serbian Interior Minister Bratislav Gasic and Security and Information Agency director Aleksandar Vulin be sacked.

The demands voiced at the protests, organized technically by parties in the pro-European opposition, include the dismissal of the Electronic Media Regulatory Body Council, shutting down print media and tabloids that publish fake news and consistently violate the journalist code of ethics,  revoking the national coverage licenses of the Pink and Happy TV stations for "promoting violence" and sacking the management of the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation.
