THE STUDENTS’ PROTEST AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NOVI SAD IN JUNE 1968

Слободан Бјелица

Abstract


The tumultuous protests that engulfed the student population in 1968 all around the World, did not evade the socialist Yugoslavia. First the Belgrade students, and then the students from all the other Yugoslav Universities went on strike and identified the requirements for more equitable social relations. University of Novi Sad was on the sidelines of events in this large protest movement, during the first decade of June 1968. Conferences that were held at the faculties and university dormitories within the University of Novi Sad were of a less protest nature. They were organized more for the purpose of solidarity with Belgrade colleagues, and tranquilized by the measures taken by the communist government. A number of "incidents" was very small. Such characteristics of the students’ movement in Novi Sad were a result of the well-organized action taken by the highest party forums in Vojvodina, as it could be seen from the minutes of the PK meeting.
