Anti-government protesters in their thousands took to the streets of Belgrade on Saturday night for the tenth weekly demonstration of its kind.
The protesters are a mix of citizens movements, opposition parties, from both left and right, academics, students and ordinary people.
They are united in the belief that Serbia with president Aleksandar Vucic at the helm is sliding towards autocratic rule and that the country is gripped by political violence and a climate of fear.
After more than two months of weekly protests people are still coming out in huge numbers and many political analysts believe the protests are beginning to shake the government:
"The regime has become very nervous since the protests began," Political Analyst, Jovo Bakic told euronews.
"The regime is about to understand that it can not do everything that it wants to do and this clear message is the most important legacy of these protests."
When the protests first began they were held only in the Serbian capital.
But in January this year 30 cities across Serbia held similar protests and 20 cities have announced rallies in February.
President Vucic has hinted at calling snap elections to address the concerns of protesters in the ballot box.
That option is not on the table for the opposition. They are demanding that a transitional government of experts be put in place to secure conditions for free and fair elections.

Their Prvi Partizan ammunition is petty decent.
