No #peakoil #collapse? Mass protest in Bosnia. No violence until police came.

al jazeera
Bosnian protests erupt over unemployment: "Many of the protesters are reportedly laid-off workers from formerly state-owned companies that collapsed after privatisation. The country's unemployment rate is 27.5 per cent and perceptions of political corruption are widespread."
I was there the whole time, it was just a regular protest until special police forces came up and started using force, then it started to look more like a riot. People are protesting because of general government incompetence, unemployment, corruption, absurdly high salaries of ministers and other government employees. The whole leadership of the country is just rotten.
