Violent anti-government protests are spreading in Bosnia.
Max spoke to local Sarajevo journalist, Kenan Cerimagic, to find out the situation on the ground.
Cerimagic says the majority of the protesters are frustrated by unemployment and that their main demand is “to have a chance to work, to earn a living, to provide their family with the good, meaningful life.” He also says that people want “the government to start thinking about them."
At 27.5 percent, Bosnia’s unemployment rate is the highest in the Balkans and Cerimagic says the anger that’s spilling out on the streets has been building up for years. He said that the demonstrators wouldn't be satisfied until politicians started paying less attention to themselves and more attention to their voters: "Twenty years after the war they cannot provide decent living in this country."
