Overthrow of Slobodan Milošević — Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org
The overthrow of Slobodan Milošević in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, began after the presidential election on 24 September and culminated in the downfall of Slobodan Milošević’s government on 5 October 2000. It is sometimes referred to as the 5 October Overthrow (Serbian: Петооктобарска револуција, Petooktobarska revolucija, lit. ‘The October 5 Revolution’) and sometimes colloquially called the Bager revolucija (lit. ‘Bulldozer Revolution’), after one of the most memorable episodes from the day-long protest in which a heavy equipment operator charged the Radio Television of Serbia building, considered to be symbolic of the Milošević regime’s propaganda.
