In this photo taken Thursday, June 6, 2013, an employee of the DTR textile factory attends a protest in Zagreb, Croatia. A decade back when Croatia started negotiating the EU entry, then the war torn country was overjoyed at the prospect of becoming a member of European elite.

The sign reads: "DTR. We are in Strike" in Croatian. (AP Photo/ Marko Drobnjakovic) less
