Women from northern Kosovo protested today in Mitrovica North and requested lifting of 100 percent taxes imposed on the goods from central Serbia, Radio kontakt plus reports.

They gathered in front of the EU and EULEX offices in Mitrovica North with a clear message to prevent Pristina to starve out Serbs in Kosovo.

Head of School Administration in Kosovo and Metohija, Jasmina Dedic asked representatives of the international community if Serb children have the same rights as children across Europe.

Ana Vukovic mother of 8 children said Pristina authorities are terrorizing Serbs for almost twenty years, however, despite everything they are raising their families. She expressed concern if her children get sick would there be medicaments and at what price.

Representative of Association of Kidnapped and Missing Persons from Kosovo, Verica Tomanovic said that increased taxes for the goods from central Serbia represent an attempt to force Serbs out of Kosovo and Metohija.

Gathered protestors extended support to the Union of Women from Vracar, whose activists were bringing humanitarian aid for babies and mothers, but were prevented to enter Kosovo at Jarinje crossing point by the Kosovo police.

Following the protest, a walk was organized and women were joined by a group of students from Pristina University, Radio kontakt plus reported.
