Belgrade Protest Noah speaks with Sarah Chayes, who reports an estimated 100-thousand people turned out today in Belgrade, Yugoslavia for a rally calling on President Slobodan Milosevic to step down. It was the biggest demonstration in Serbia since the winter of 1996. The two main opposition leaders came together on the same platform to call for Milosevic to step down. Although a tear gas grenade was thrown into the crowd, it caused little trouble, and police made no effort to stop buses from bringing demonstrators into the capital.
