New Balcony Demonstration Against Zagreb Mayor Called for April 24

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 20, 2020 – The initiative Zagreb Is Calling You and the NGOs Green Action and the Right to the City are organising a new, third, balcony protest against the Zagreb mayor to take place on Friday, April 24 under the slogan “Bandić, give the money back”.

The organisers are calling on citizens to bang their pots in order to show their dissatisfaction with the mayor’s “wasteful use of city money on murky and unnecessary, often overpaid projects”.

Each day, the chaos surrounding the repair of the damage caused by the earthquake becomes more evident, as well as the fact that these incompetent authorities were not able to systematically take even the most basic steps to repair the damage in a month’s time, they said.

All this is happening in a city where the mayor manages about HRK 12 billion (€1.6bn) a year, while parts of the city still lack basic utilities, and many streets are littered with rubbish, the activists said in their call for protest.

The first demonstration against the mayor took place on April 3 and the second on April 17.
