Activists from an umbrella ecology organization disrupted a meeting on mineral and other resources in a central Belgrade hotel.

The activists from the Alliance of Ecological Organizations of Serbia (SEOS) protested in front of the Hotel Metropol before bursting into the conference room where Serbian and foreign companies were meeting.

The activists chanted Rio Tinto Out of Serbia, preventing the meeting from going ahead.

Earlier, SEOS held a news conference saying that the authorities organized the meeting with multinational companies and ignored the public and the scientific community that has been warning about the damage various projects have been doing across Serbia. Activists said that the authorities are also not providing any information about the projects.

The conference at the Hotel Metropol was supposed to be held behind closed doors bringing together experts and officials from mining companies.
