What one week ago looked like pathetic stunt by fringe politicians, losers and attention whores is increasingly looking like a serious problem for Croatian government. Despite violence on Saturday and almost unison condemnations of "hooligans" by media and political establishment, protesters are becoming bolder, more organised, more disciplined and more effective every day. Tonight Ivan Pernar - libertarian activist who started the whole shebang and became object of vicious assaults from Right and Left in the process - made first important personnel scores by having not one but two members of Sabor at the protest. So far, the "violent" and "populist" and "anti-European" protests were no-go zone for any Croatian "serious" politicians. Tonight, some 4000-5000 protesters (which is quite high number for Zagreb standards) were joined by Dragutin Lesar, leader of newly registered Croatian Labour Party and Damir Kajin, representative of Istrian Democratic Assembly, party which belongs to main opposition "Kukuriku" coalition.
Protesters, who have marched against government and HDZ (ruling party) headquarters, are now marching towards Croatian state television headquraters and demand resignation of Hloverka Novak-Srzić, unpopular chief editor known for her pro-government views.
