From the second protest “Požega against violence”, held on the Freedom Square in that city, Marta Vesović, a graduate of Požega’s high school “Sveti Sava”, called on the citizens to “in word and deed, dignify the trampled principles – truth, freedom, kindness and justice”. .
“As a young person,” she said, “she does not want to live in a country where violence rules, which sinks into a swamp of mediocrity and primitivism, where farmers are forbidden to dig, teachers to teach, journalists to tell the truth, doctors to heal and people to walk”.
“I don’t want to breathe the air that is polluted by vlagarianism and drink the cloudy water that prevents us all from sincere smiles and carefree hugs.”
“We were shaken by the tragedies that happened, but, she added, “they woke us up and confronted us with the consequences of poisoning society with hatred, aggression, wrong models of behavior, labeling”.
“The media, under the auspices of the government and the dysfunctional REM, as well as the officials who have been polarizing the public and promoting insults and contempt for years, are especially responsible for that,” she assessed.
“We want peace, non-violence, safety for children, a high-quality educational system nurtured by the state, media that report objectively and professionally”.
“Deeply shaken by the tragedy in Belgrade, Mladenovac and Smederevo, the epidemic of femicide, and the overall deterioration of our society, tens and tens of thousands of citizens are taking to the streets and demanding an end to violence and the removal of the cause that leads to violence, which is aggression in public space.”
She said of the femicides that they could have been prevented and that “there is no reasonable explanation, no justification for the absence of a state response.”
“Don’t”, she ordered, “allow them to divide us, incite us against each other and against each other”.
“After more than a decade of dictatorship, the scent of Serbian spring has finally begun. Unfortunately, great tragedies were necessary for that, which were the last alarm for the salvation of Serbia”, said, among other things, high school graduate Marta Vesović from the meeting where those gathered supported the demands of the civil protests in Belgrade.
