Several main streets in the city were blocked and without traffic, from Kneza Miloa, across Savska, to certain streets around them.
Large police forces are noticeable in all parts of the city.
The roadblock was organized despite the appeal of the Ministry of the Interior that blocking the roads is a violation of the law.

A BIRN investigation has identified serious delays on all three sections of the line, as well as mistakes that have cost Serbia almost $35 million in penalties; it also turned up documents showing that almost $720,000 of an $800 million Russian loan for the railway line was spent on the lease of six cars from a Russian contractor.
Years behind schedule
With a 1.1 billion euro budget from European funds, the Danube Delta has become in recent years Romania's largest investment project, shows a Sierra Quadrant expert analysis released on Monday.
In Western Europe, about 200 people lost their lives, entire villages and even cities were flooded. The damage is huge, and the Germans are now threatened by toxic sludge. What worried us in Serbia was the large amount of precipitation that fell on our country, but also the Danube, which "collects" all that water from Europe.
"Before the end of the year, we will start building the sewerage system on the left bank of the Danube," said Aleksandar Vui on that occasion, adding that the necessary documentation for that project is now being completed.
"It will be a big and most important project, but we found the money and we will start with it soon," said Vucic.
