(FOTO:Blic/Andrija Ilić)  Belgrade’s first Pride Parade was organised on 30th June 2001 under the slogan “There is Space for All of Us”. The small number of those who gathered at the Republic Square were attacked by members of right wing organisations and sports fan groups. The police forces were insufficient and unprepared and did not react adequately to the violence. More than forty people were injured, and there was no Government reaction.
