Croatia criminalising Cyrillic script

In the Croatian city of Vukovar, a fan was arrested last Thursday for waving a flag with the name Vukovar written in Cyrillic letters at a match in the European junior women's basketball championship. The arrest is the sad culmination of a campaign aimed at criminalising the Cyrillic script, author Miljenko Jergović complains in the liberal daily Jutarnji List: "The campaign 'Stop the Cyrillic script in Croatia' is backed by all the right-wing parties in the country, as well as certain citizens' associations and the bishops of the Catholic Church. The government is remaining silent on the campaign for tactical reasons and trying to limit its impact and cover it up. As long as our society stays the way it is, and neither Brussels nor Washington have a problem with this, the criminalisation of the Cyrillic script will continue. Nowhere else in Europe since 1945 has it been the case that not a single cultural or literary association puts up resistance to the criminalisation of an alphabet." (20/08/2013)


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

RE: Croatia criminalising Cyrillic script
From now on the Cyrillic alphabet is the alphabet of counter-culture. Any punk rock band, that still uses the trendy Latin alphabet for its albums, has betrayed its roots.

This story smells too romantic to my taste. No one is arrested just because.

Indeed. The daily claims that it happened because of this flag:

But the Serbian fans were misbehaving prior to and during the match, singing songs like 'knife, wire, Srebrenica' and 'Vukovar is Serbia' and were disciplined accordingly.

We must dissent.

Even worse than what I figured... ;)

They should consider themselves lucky that they only got arrested.

Criminalizing Cyrillic would be ludicrous anyway, since it is a part of our cultural heritage.

We must dissent.

Provoke - cause counterreaction - complain about results and self-victimise.

Nothing new from Serbian radical groups and the half-wit adolescent youth.

Still, it sucks that there is still such a deep hatred between European brothers sad

Croatia should criminalise both, cyrillic AND latin. Only glagolitic, only hardcore!
