Thousands rally in Sydney against Kosovo independence

Several thousands members of Sydney's Serbian community have rallied in the city this afternoon calling on the Federal Government to reverse its decision to recognise Kosovo as an independent state.

The protesters marched from Martin Place to the Federal Government offices in Sydney this afternoon.

They carried signs saying "Kosovo is Serbia" and the "United Nations is dead".

They are angry the Australian Government recognised Kosovo's declaration of independence last month.

The protesters, who were mostly members of the Serbian community, are calling on the Federal Government to reverse its decision to recognise Kosovo as an independent state.

They say Kosovo's declaration breaches international law and have called for an apology.
