Bob Myers on Bosnia After the Spring Protests

Bob Myers describes a visit to the city of Tuzla in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the site of brief but intense protests against the corruption and indifference of the post-Dayton Agreement local and national governments. Myers, a leading activist of the British group Workers Aid for Bosnia, has been a consistent voice of support for the multi-ethnic solidarity that animated the Bosnian (or Bosniak) people during the struggle against the Serbian ultra-nationalist attempt to destroy independent Bosnia. Of particular interesest in Myers’s account is the limitations of the Plenum movement that emerged from the recent protests. This report appears in the pages of Solidarity, the organ of the Alliance for Workers Liberty.

The history of Workers Aid for Bosnia is recounted in Taking Sides: Against Ethnic Cleansing in Bosnia.
