Whose interests does the police protect while beating up women

4. 9. 2017 - BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

The villagers of Kruscica (Central Bosnia) have been protesting since the beginning of August 2017 against a construction of two hydropower plants that are supposed to be built on Kruscica river flowing through the village. Despite these strong local protests the authorities failed to respond their questions and to hear the will of the citizens. On August 24th a police intervention was held and the police brutally attacked a group of 40 women, blocking a bridge at that time.
