Croatia: nationalists want anti-Serbian minority referendum

After anti-gay marriage referendum; premier vows to intervene

02 December, 20:57

    (ANSAmed) - ZAGREB, DECEMBER 2 - Just after Croatians voted to ban same-sex marriages in a referendum yesterday, a coalition of nationalist associations on Monday announced they have gathered enough signatures for a referendum to curtail the rights of minority Serbian citizens.

    At issue is the right of Serbs to use their own language and to the public use of Cryllic lettering.

    The nationalist coalition includes veterans of the 1991-1995 war of Croatian independence. They started gathering signatures after bilingual signs appeared on the streets of Vukovar, a city that was particularly ravaged during that war. Visibly irritated, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic promised he will do everything in his power to prevent this referendum from taking place, including changing the rules on this kind of vote if necessary.
