Even though I appreciate Polish support, I don't see the point of protests. The good thing is at least young people in Poland care for justice, which is not the case around here.

Beside that, Serbs don't have time for such gathering, unless its a word about some football match/protest. For example Serbs in Belgrade are too busy sitting in pubs drinking alcohol, or taking a walk around the city doing nothing in the working hours during non-weekend days. Its an atmosphere you'd actually see in some cities such as Baghdad or Tunis.

The point of protests is a show for solidarity, if nothing else. It shows people are willing to do something, that they still believe in something, and they aren't controlled by their governments. And if done properly, they can have a snowball effect. These scenes have really moved me, and made me feel sick at the same time.

They moved me because of the effort the Poles went to for this, to organise, gather, and march in the spirit of brotherhood, solidarity, and unity.

They made me feel sick because Serbs aren't doing the same thing… Or ANYTHING for that matter. I can't express how disappointed and disgusted I am.

However, what you just said epitomises Serbia today: "For example Serbs in Belgrade are too busy sitting in pubs drinking alcohol, or taking a walk around the city doing nothing in the working hours during non-weekend days." So true.

It's as we refuse to make our own country better, from the basic grassroots level, to the larger political scale. I wonder if Poland, Czechs, or anyone else will do this again next year, when they've seen that Serbia won't even do it for itself.
