Protest rally in Pozarevac tomorrow

Pozarevac, Monday - Thousands of people are expected to protest in Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic's home town of Pozarevac tomorrow over the arrest of three student activists on attempted murder charges last week. The three members of the student movement Otpor were arrested after being beaten by members of the Yugoslav United Left outside a cafe in the central Serbian town last week.

The leaders of all Serbian opposition parties are expected to appear at tomorrow's rally under the slogan "Stop the Terror".

An opposition member of the Serbian Parliament from Pozarevac, Zivadin Jotic, told media today that the joint opposition will have tight security measures in place tomorrow. He added that despite the tense atmosphere in the town, no violence is expected.
