We call "Anti-bureaucratic revolution" the clash within the Socialist Committee of Serbia, which took place in the period between 1987.and 1989, with the broadest political mobilization of citizens, and the result of which was constitutional reformation of Serbia. During the ‘80s of the 20th century, the Serbian Communist leadership had, more or less explicitly, disputed (questioned) the legal-political and economic order in Serbia and Yugoslavia, which was established by the 1974. Constitution.
