Support the Belgrade Pride

We urge the serbian president to fully support the Belgrade Pride that will be held on October 2. A vulnerable group such as the LGBT population in Serbia cannot exercise their freedom of assembly and freedom of expression without your public support and recognition, Civil Rights Defenders said in a letter to the serbian President Boris Tadic, the Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic and the Mayor of Belgrade, Dragan Djilas.

The right to freedom of peaceful assembly, enshrined in Article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights, applies to all persons. It is the obligation of the government of Serbia to respect and protect that right.

Last year we praised the Serbian authorities’ strong commitment to protect the Pride participants.
