According to the latest CIVICUS Monitor update on Serbia, one of the 5 countries currently on the Monitor Watchlist, April 2019 was marked by attacks on journalists working for independent and investigative networks.

In regards to freedom of assembly and the wave of protests that hit Serbia in 2019, on April 20th, protesters marched across the country under a new banner, “All as one – 1 in 5 million”, name that was coined after the organisers of the four-month long #1od5miliona anti-regime demonstrations reiterated their calls on the government to resign, but also added new demands to their list.
