Stories: SLOVENIA'S ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTS 2012
Fierce anti-government protest have been organized in Ljubljana, Maribor and other bigger cities in Slovenia in November and December 2012. The protesters demanded the corrupt political elites to resign, especially prime minister Janez Jansa, following continuous new allegations and even investigation reports of corruption. The leading party, however, took quite an arrogant stance against the protesters, calling them zombies at one point, which brough even more people to the streets. On several occasions the protests eventually turned violent. After two months of protests, the government along with prime minister Janez Jansa finally resigned. The new government is no better.
