Student resistance movement in Serbia that played a critical role in the downfall of Slobodan Milosevic in 2000

Otpor (Resistance) was formed in October 1998 in response to repressive university and media laws introduced earlier that year. In the aftermath of NATO bombing in 1999, Otpor started a campaign against Slobodan Milosevic. This resulted in nationwide police repression against Otpor activists, during which almost 2000 of them were arrested and some of them beaten.

During the presidential campaign in September 2000, Otpor launched its "Gotov je" (He's finished) campaign that galvanized Serbian discontent with Milosevic and eventually resulted in his defeat.

In addition to greatly contributing to Slobodan Milosevic's overthrow, Otpor will be remembered for emboldening other similar youth movements around Eastern Europe. This led some observers to label them "revolution exporters".
