Danish artists protest pro-Mladic propaganda


BELGRADE -- Two Danish artists have countered pro-Mladic propaganda posters on the streets of Belgrade.

Originally, posters distributed and plastered by the clero-fascist organisation Obraz showing support for Hague fugitive Ratko Mladic appeared on walls and building around Belgrade.

Light blue stickers were stuck on these posters today which read “we know that your nerves are frail” and “we know you are a coward,” which were put on the posters by two Danish artists.

According to the Associated Press, the two artists, Jan Egesborg and Pia Bartelsen, wanted to show disapproval of the trend of painting Mladic as a Serbian hero who protected Serbs during the war in Bosnia.

“Our message is that it is over and that there is no escape for him.” Egesborg said. Beta
