Protest against “public bailiffs” during their annual assembly in Belgrade in 2018.  The major crackdown on housing rights in Serbia started with the introduction of a new debt enforcement system that has provided banks, loan sharks, utility companies, corporations and wealth tycoons with an additional tool for the disposition of poor and indebted members of the society. Individual acts of resistance led to a formation of a nationwide movement and an organization that stands at the forefront of the struggle for housing justice — the Roof.
