Crown Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia, resident of Great Britain, successful businessman and former British soldier, addressed the National Press Club on changes in the political and social structure of Yugoslavia. Alexander’s father fled Yugoslavia during the Nazi invasion in World War II, and Great Britain formally declared the British birthplace of Alexander as being part of Yugoslavia in order to establish Alexander’s Yugoslavian citizenship. In his speech, Alexander argued change in Yugoslavia has been slow or nonexistent: elections have remained predetermined, the media is controlled by the government, and financial collapse is imminent. Political and social strife is reaching a crisis point. He called for additional attention and support for a true democratic movement in Yugoslavia. close
