Bosnia class uprising: Presidential Palace burned

In the last few days I've been reading news of very large and furious protests in Bosnia-Herzegovina, mostly in the major cities (all them of Bosniak or "Muslim" majority) of Sarajevo, Tuzla, Zenica and Bihac. The riots have reached their apogee as the very Presidential Palace has been severely burned.

The uprising began after four major industries were first privatized and then closed down, in yet another example of destructive Capitalism. 

Bosnia suffers of massive unemployment (44% of the workforce) and has been unable to recover from the economic decadence since the ethnic war, situation aggravated now by the systemic crisis of global Capitalism. 

Hundreds are reported injured and it is unclear where the conflict may head to. What is clear is that Europe in general is more and more submerged into Capitalist destruction and widespread public anger. It's not just Bosnia.
