Party of Freedom and Justice president Dragan Djilas and People's Party vice president Miroslav Aleksic on Nov. 29 voiced support for the protests of activists and organizations against legislation on expropriation and referendums.

Djilas and Aleksic told a news conference in front of the Serbian parliament that they would show their support on Dec. 4, when a new demonstration has been announced. Djilas said his party's members would attend the protests as private citizens, with no party insignia.

Aleksic said the environmental protests were not the place to focus on who was there from the opposition and who was not. "This is an issue for all Serbian citizens and there are no divisions here. We're all the same, we're all equal and in this matter we will stand together with our people in the streets," he said.

Djilas and Aleksic said the weekend's protests had seen brutal repression by the regime against the people and called for all who physically assaulted activists to be arrested.
