Slovenians have had enough

The wave of protest against the political class and the government in Slovenia reached a new high point on Monday. Thousands of people took to the streets in several cities to vent their frustration. According to the online portal Žurnal24 the Slovenians' patience is at an end: "The politicians have attempted in vain to discredit the demonstrators, first as mercenaries of the opposition, then as rioters. ... But the goals of the protests are becoming increasingly clear. First they targeted corrupt politicians, now they're directed against politics itself, and increasingly against capitalism. The next step could be a call for social alternatives. The protests may die down, but everything depends on whether they continue or not. No one knows how this will all end. But one thing is certain: the genie is out of the bottle, and the people will not go on suffering in silence. Anything can happen now."
