- By Sekul Popovic, Alternative Information Network
(AIM)—Athens, Banja Luka, 15 July 1999. Support for
privatisation was frequently just a screen hiding the
inter-party struggle for power. It could be said that the

reforms and protector of workers' interests.
- Protest of Workers in B & H
- By Hana Barjraktarevic, AIM Sarajevo, 26 October
1999. More than 30 thousand workers from parts of B&H
Federation with Bosniac majority population demanded
“bread because we are hungry”. Workers from
parts with Croat majority population were not
there—they do not have an organised trade union
organisation except in the Aluminium Combine in Mostar.

Association for passing the laws on auditing of
privatisation and settling the intern debt, as well as on
launching the FBiH Economic-Social Council.
