On Tuesday, May 31, 2016, the Association for Social Research and Communications (UDIK) will organize an activity to mark the International Day of White Ribbons. The activity will be carried out at 12 noon at Youth Square in Brcko.
We remind that on May 31, 1992, Bosnian Serb authorities in Prijedor issued a decree through local radio for all non-Serbs to mark their houses with white flags or sheets and to wear a white armband. This was the first time that after the Nazi edict of 1939 members of an ethnic or religious group in this way were marked for extermination.
With this street action UDIK wants to remind the public to this act that was the beginning of a campaign of extermination of non-Serbs through the opening of the concentration camps, mass executions, rape and various other crimes. Putting white ribbons we will pay tribute to all the victims of crimes committed in Prijedor.
