- Story Text: INTRO: Opposition protesters in Yugoslavia have continued todemonstrate against election fraud, showing no sign of relenting in their 20-day-old challenge to President Slobodan Milosevic's rule.
More than 7,000 students gathered for the seventh day in Novi Sad on Monday (December 9) in peaceful support of their Belgrade colleagues who have been protesting for more than three weeks.
Unlike in other major towns where the opposition has won in the local elections and their victory was annulled later, the Socialists conceded defeat in Novi Sad.
Novi Sad is the provincial capital of Vojvodina, the north Serbian province, which is home for more than 40 nationalities.
Students burnt old newspapers and threw eggs on the state-controlled daily "Dnevnik".
The students in Novi Sad are demanding the recognition of recent election results, the objective media coverage of the current protest, and the restoration of their abolished local student radio and television station.
In Belgrade, more than 30,000 students gathered on Monday in their latest show of displeasure over the reversal of opposition victories in municipal elections on November 17.
Opposition leader Vuk Draskovic addressed protesters, who were also outraged by reports of a savage beating meted out in prison to Dejan Bulatovic, 21, a worker from the northeastern town of Sid who was arrested on Friday for carrying an effigy of Milosevic in prison garb.
Bulatovic's mother alleged that her son's nose was broken, that he was forced to lie naked on the concrete floor of a prison cell with an open window and that, during the beating, a gun barrel was forced into his mouth.
The opposition has staged daily protests attracting up to 150,000 people against the annulment of its victories at local elections last month.
Rade Radovanovic, one of the leaders of the trade union "Independency", which gathers some 700,000 workers, said that he expected to start "very important strikes in basic union" in two days.
"We are very interested to avoid any kind of violence on the streets." he said.
