“Several hundred pensioners have rallied in the center of the Serbian capital to protest against pension cuts and low living standards.

After the gathering on Belgrade’s Nikola Pasic Square on October 30, the demonstrators marched to the Constitutional Court.

Similar protests were held in several other Serbian cities.

In February 2015, the government of then-Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic signed a three-year loan deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) after Belgrade committed to drastic measures to cut its debt and budget deficit.” (RFE/RL)
