Women in Black

Description: 

Background
On 9th October 1991, Women in Black began a public nonviolent protest against the war; the Serbian regime’s policy; nationalism; militarism and all forms of hatred, discrimination and violence. Thus far, it has organized more than 500 protests, most of which have taken place in the streets and squares of Belgrade, but also in other cities of Serbia and Montenegro, throughout the former Yugoslavia, other cities in Europe, and around the world. Anti-militarism and non-violence is our spiritual orientation and our political choice.
