The Human Aspect of Srđa

I was born into heavy injustice with a lack of freedom and combined with the punk rock era, joining, and leading the student uprising as an activist, came natural to me. Once the resistance from the government increased and their methods turned more violent, the risks grew for all of us. I felt I couldn’t escape the responsibility and expectations as one of the leaders, and with it the loneliness and sacrifices grew.
