About 5,000 Yugoslav workers tried to force their way into the Parliament today to demand the resignation of Premier Branko Mikulic’s government, but were held back by a cordon of police.

The protesters marched about 10 miles from an industrial Belgrade suburb to protest low wages and falling living standards. Demonstrators booed and jeered Deputy Premier Milos Milosavljevic and Parliament President Dusan Popovski, who both tried to deliver speeches during the four-hour protest.
