For first time in the country's history Croatia has been rocked by demonstrations with anti-capitalist slogans, reports
In March 2011 Croatia was a country of protests. Demonstrations occurred in almost every larger city in a two or three day rhythm. The largest protests were in the capital, Zagreb, where some demos were over 10,000 strong. The main demand of the protest was for the immediate stepping down of the current right of centre government of the HDZ (Croatian Democratic Union). But the real motive for the uprising was a general dissatisfaction with the current political and economic state of Croatia.
