According to the Focus New Agency, more than 500,000 people attended yesterday's ceremony of mourning in Belgrade for President Milosevic. The anti-Milosevic Serbian authorities have put the figure at 100,000.
Why then do both the BBC and Teletext continue to report that only 50,000 attended?
I have written to them to ask from which source did they get their figure- I'll post any reply as soon as I get one.
ps the other standard propaganda trick in today's Imperial media is to portray the demonstrators as 'predominantly elderly'. This is a clear lie- as looking at any pictures of the march will prove. People of all ages were there- an unpalatable fact for the Empire- which likes to pretend that only a small minority of elderly 'nationalists' mourn Milosevic. In any case, isn't trying to disparage a ceremony by claiming that those present were mainly elderly, ageist? Is the NWO saying that only the voices of C.I.A. bankrolled youth movements like the notorious OTPOR count- and that elderly people's don't?
