    A very good article. However, I wish to highlight a wrong reference to the enclosed photo of the demonstrations – it is not from December, 1971. Let me elaborate on few relevant points: – in the early days of December 1971. there was a brutal repressive response from the police against a peaceful student demonstration. This was a really brutal beating of students, many bloody heads and beaten bodies were seen – I know, I was there. That brutal beatings of students were far worse then really “polite” police handling the crowds shown in the subject photo. The subject photo was taken in late October, 1973. when the state (Yugoslavia, then) was organising against American imperialism, and in particular against the Yom Kippur war at that time (note the sign in Arabic, supporting Palestinians). This was in front of American Consulate in Zagreb (Zrinjevac square). I know this – I have seen this. Back in time of Yugoslavia – there were two kinds of demonstrations: – one organised by Government, very lightly handled by police (like the subject photo shows): – another and spontaneous by general populace, not many happened, and typically handled very brutally by police. It is worthy to know the difference.

    • Thank you Josip, you could be right regarding that photo, I did a great deal of research without success to find some that show the brutality and terror you speak of from December 1971 in Zagreb I too was among the students – beaten, followed, taken to police station Sv Duh, beaten, beaten…ended in hospital…all for pamphlets I had etc attended meetings…I know well of the oppression and brutality you speak of – thank you so very much on your comment
