Some forty years ago, Yugoslavia made a great step compared to other communist countries by abandoning the Soviet political regime and undertaking many reforms. Beginning with the student movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was a sign of gradual liberalization of the communist system in Croatia. The main political issues among the students of that time were social diversity and the student union’s desire to escape from the Communist Party’s grip. The activists in youth organizations were the only pioneers of that time who were gathering points for further progress in politics. At that time there were some liberal programs trying to confront the dogmatic, militaristic, and centralist power of the Yugoslav government, which put obstacles in the way of any form of democracy, cultural, economic, or political, in Croatian society.
