ZAGREB, March 2, 2019 – The Split branch of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) organised a walk on the city’s waterfront promenade on Saturday, with participants carrying a banner “For an open and tolerant Split” and expressing their opposition to any form of violence in the city.

“This is a symbolic gesture to show that Split is an open and tolerant Croatian and Mediterranean city in which our citizens and guests feel good,” said the head of the SDP town branch, Goran Kotur.

“This town is not like it is being portrayed because of the behaviour of some individuals or groups,” he added.

“Attacks and graffiti are an attempt to cast a shadow over Split and I believe that today’s march will remove that shadow,” Kotur told reporters hinting at a recent attack on Serbian water polo players.

SDP invited citizens as well as Mayor Andro Krstulović Opara (HDZ), City Council President Igor Stanišić (HGS) and councillors from other parties, to join the march.

“This walk is a civilisational gesture and not political and that’s why we didn’t display any party signs because we wanted to attract people of different political views. I don’t know why they didn’t joint us,” he said.
