OTD October 5 - Bulldozer revolution
5 / 47

2000: In what became known as the Bulldozer Revolution, protesters from all over Serbia arrive in Belgrade to demand President Slobodan Milosevic concede electoral defeat from the country's September elections. Opposition supporters used a bulldozer to help take over Serbian state television and set fire to the Yugoslav parliament building as part of the effort. Due to pressure caused by the protests, Milosevic would end up resigning on Oct. 6.
