On 25th of February 2012. we had first big anti ACTA protest in Belgrade at Republic Square.
If someone doesn't know what the hell is ACTA, watch this clip that explains what it is and why it could be very dangerous.

I think this protest was organised by Zeitgeist movement, but was accompanied with many slogans, including 99% (99 percent) and of course Anonymous with their masks



















anonymous masks were heavily supported with rage comic friends













mr Guy Fawkes blushed after one gentle touch of a lady



protest was live streamed via netbook



I'm really bad at guessing crowd numbers, but many report figures of up to 1000 people









using megaphone and human megaphone (crowd near the speakers shouting, repeating words of the speakers so people far away in the crowd could here it) organizers sent message about ACTA problems and fight against it.









friends supported friends and together supported protest



Anonymous and pirates were together in this fight. there were also speakers from Wikipedia and other countries









like a guest from India



here is a sneak peak of the protest plan



after reading it and voting against it people started ripping apart paper with acta text







many stood in line to sign anti ACTA petition







Young, old, male, female...



Yup, girls are agaist ACTA too, you know











Anonymous gave few interviews to major TV stations in Serbia



even cops were interested in this



Neo was also there, so I guess this problem is solved



Protest ended and strong message was sent that there are many people in Serbia that are against ACTA
