Milosevic faces protests
A protester argues with a policeman during the demonstration in Belgrade
While more than 200 Kosovo Serbs have held a demonstration in the centre of Belgrade to protest against their treatment by the Yugoslav government, the opposition Serbian Renewal Movement has called for immediate and fundamental political changes in Yugoslavia.
The refugees demonstrating in Belgrade say their plight has been ignored by the authorities, and they will organise further protests on Monday in front of the parliament.
The refugees say they feel betrayed by the government, and angry about the poor reception they have been given.
"Serbian government members should go [to Kosovo] and spend a month with their families, then they can tell me that it is safe," said one refugee.
But most of them have been kept out of Belgrade, and forced to camp in car parks and fields until their return can be organised.
Serbian Renewal Movement President Vuk Draskovic said the departure of Serbs from the province could not be stopped without "fundamental and comprehensive political changes" in Serbia.
Mr Draskovic warned that party members should be ready to do what was necessary if the government did not, in his words, come to its senses.
He also stressed that there would be no international financial aid for rebuilding Yugoslavia without reforms.
The BBC's correspondent in Belgrade, Jonathan Patterson, says the authorities are worried about the political implications of such a large influx of refugees.
Political analyst Aleksa Djilas says although Mr Milosevic's political demise has been predicted in the past, this time it is more likely than ever before.
"Even the church has asked him to resign, and the church has never made such a direct appeal before. The church has great authority with very many Serbs," he said.
