Kids in Banja Luka, the city of Republic of Srpska, resisted the heavy machinery that was on its way to turn their playground into parking. Weapons of 5 to 12 years old kids were improvised barricades, eggs and tomatoes, night sabotages, drawings and poetry. Through negotiations with the mayor they managed to stop the betonization and got assured that the City will build the real playground instead of parking.

In words of activist Vesna Malesevic (UNSA GETO), "dissapearance of neighbourhoods, privatization of commong ground, illegal construction and cutting of trees have become an everyday occurance in Banja Luka, led by city authorities in the name of progress and urbanization."
