Plenum

February 24, 2014

Okay, you guys are gonna kill me for continuing to post about these protests, but hey, they are the biggest protests Bosnia has seen since 1992! The most significant innovation is the development of plenums, where citizens can freely gather to share ideas and jointly make demands on the government. I went to one in Mostar, where a skype link was created with the Sarajevo plenum. Citizens of all ages and backgrounds came and anyone can speak for up to 5 minutes. It’s so moving to see how overjoyed people are to finally say what they think about the disastrous political situation in Mostar– still no Mayor or city council 14 months after the elections.
