Serbia: Belgrade's Gay Pride Parade Banned

“Gay pride parade planned for tomorrow has been banned by Serbian autorities because the police said they can’t protect the participants,” Belgraded.com reports, adding: “It’s 2011 and it feels that the progress Serbia is that of a snail on a reversed treadmill. By progress I do not mean progress in human rights or some similar empty slogan that means everything and nothing at the same time. I am talking about a complete lack of compassion between citizens.”
