Residents of the Banja Luka town held a mass protest against the propaganda on the accession of Bosnia and Herzegovina into NATO.
People gathered near one of the promotional banners with the slogan “Why NATO”, which they supplemented with reminders of the bloody military actions of the alliance in the world and, in particular, in Yugoslavia in 1999.
Serbian activists “elaborated” quotes that NATO supporters want “to live in a stable country” with photos of three-year old Milica Rakic killed in the bombing of Belgrade seventeen and a half years ago.
Bosnia and Herzegovina aspires to join NATO, at that the alliance demands a series of political reforms from Sarajevo. Serbs who live mainly in the entities of the Republika Srpska are opposing joining the bloc.
