Serbs Protest Silently Against Mindless NATO Bombing of State TV Headquarters

Don't Forgive Them, Lord! They Know What They Are Doing!

BELGRADE - An endless procession of at least 30,000 people marched through downtown Belgrade on Saturday. With candles and flowers in their hands, the Serbs expressed their silent protest against and frustration with the mindless NATO bombing of the Serbian State Television (RTS) headquarters. Thousands of prayers were whispered, with one question only: Why? Why bomb the innocent?

The procession departed from the Republic Square. The concert was cancelled. Now it is not time for singing.

"As you can see, Riblja Corba band is here, but today we are not going to play or sing. Let's set out quietly to the St. Mark Church and show the world the glory of the Serbian soul," Bora Djordjevic, frontman of the popular band told protesters.

Carrying at the head of the column a banner, saying "Belgrade Is the World", people set out in silence to the site of the RTS building that was blasted early on Friday. The Belgrade City authorities officials, Yugoslav federal Information Minister Milan Komnenic, and many public figures joined the peaceful protest.

"A magnificent rally in suffering Belgrade," a British reporter speaks before the camera.

"Don't forgive them, Lord, they know what they are doing," said one of the banners. Outside the RTS building, tens of thousands of candles were lit. With their heads bent, people stood in their silent protest against the sinful, blasphemous force.

Bring Our Sons Back

BELGRADE - On Saturday, as thousands of Belgraders were paying tribute to Serbian Television employees killed in NATO bombing near the ruins of TV building in Aberdareva Street, on the opposite side, in Takovska Street, numerous camera crews gathered around passengers getting off the buses with the Subotica plates. However, they were not residents of the northern Serbian town. Words in German exchanged among about 100 women, men and youths reminded the cameramen that German mothers kept their promise to come to Belgrade and stop the war.

Waving back with flowers, German visitors took out their banners, saying "Friendly Convoy". They wore T-shirts with a white pigeon as their symbol, as paralleled to our "targets". "Mothers Against War" and "Peace Now" peace organizations from eastern part of Germany came to Belgrade to express their support of the Serbs and the truth.

Ilona Rothe, whose son serves in NATO forces in Macedonia, opened the protest.

"I came here as a mother to appeal to all parents not to send their sons to NATO forces. I could not prevent them take away my son," Ilona said with resolve. It is necessary, she says, that all mothers of Europe learn the truth.

A tall young man in the column of German nationals moving slowly towards Belgrade's St. Mark Church wore on his back a banner with the following message: "We came to Belgrade via Prague, Vienna, Budapest, to express our solidarity with brave people in this region."

Actress Vesna Trivalic Talks About "The Canary Soup" Play

I Agreed to Be a Spice in the Soup

A peacetime story for the lonely who did not want to or dare taste a marriage

BELGRADE - Tihomir Stanic (as husband Mihajlo Medovic) and Vesna Trivalic (in a role of his wife, Jelena Stanisavljevic) starred in the first play written by a movie director Milos Radovic and directed by Vida Ognjenovic. "The Canary Soup" had its premiere on the Atelier 212 Theater Small Stage in Belgrade on Saturday.

On a stage envisioned by scenographer Darko Nedeljkovic as a "kitchen pot" with a slightly "burned-out" bottom, this completely peacetime story, despite hard times we are living in, reminded the audience of some universal values - of all emotional nuances implied by love and marriage.

- "The Canary Soup" is a play written for all the lonely who wanted to but dared not marry, as well as those who did not want it at all, - says actress Vesna Trivalic. - My case is a completely different story. I felt I wanted to marry for the first time when I was a five-year old girl. Later, however, I forgot the idea altogether. That is why this play is the only occasion in which I agreed to be a good or bad "spice" in a "soup".

Bojan Sudjic conducts the Orchestra.

Jelena Vlahovic, a mezzo-soprano, says:

"It is my first role in wartime, at the same time marking 50th performance on the National Theater stage in these hard times. It is a sad anniversary, but we are all in top form, both physically and mentally. Art is always, and particularly in these hard times, the one that gives a ray of light and hope and offers comfort and encouragement."



Miroslav Djukic, Yugoslav international soccer player now in Valencia, finds himself in the political arena

No One Asks Ordinary People

In these troubled times, to write a story about sports is almost an impossible mission. For when we telephoned Miroslav Djukic, Valencia's main defense player, wartime talk started immediately.

"Bombing of the Serbian TV headquarters is an act of vandalism. To bomb people who work there is to… Well, I am speechless. I cannot find words to express my anger! They could have jammed the program if they had wanted to do it. But they decided to kill people instead.

As for the Spanish media and the Spaniards, Djukic says:

"It is widely known how the media must report and what they can broadcast or publish. However, no one can swallow these obvious lies any more. Claims that our president Slobodan Milosevic is the only problem sound ridiculous. It is obvious that they are dropping bombs with an expired guarantee period and that they want to make a sort of impression on the world that they won a victory. In fact, ordinary people know the whole truth and they are against aggression, but, unfortunately, no one asks them.
