Protesters Urged To Keep Resisting

MONDAY, FEB. 10, 1997

An opposition leader said Sunday that Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic has committed “far greater thefts” than stealing votes, and he urged supporters to keep up the pressure until their revolution is complete.

Zoran Djindjic, a leader of the Zajedno, or Together, coalition, told about 10,000 participants at a rally that Milosevic’s pledge to recognize the opposition’s electoral victories did not mean the Serbian leader was surrendering.

The controversy over the elections and the fraud are just the “tip of the iceberg,” Djindjic said.

Djindjic accused Milosevic of trying to sell off some national assets, such as the post and telecommunications service, at fire-sale prices in order to scrape up money to help keep him in power.
