dc.description.abstract The paper presents an analysis of the anti-industrial processes in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. In this context, special attention was paid to the protests against the Bata Company, which by its arrival suppressed domestic industrial and artisan production in the leather industry, i.e. deepened the unfavorable social position of the population, existentially dependent on domestic footwear production. The Bata Company in Yugoslavia was founded in 1920 and until the end of the decade the retail network grew, but there was still no production, as the footwear and accessories were imported from Czechoslovakia. After the establishment of the factory in Borovo in 1931, Bata became the dominant shoe producer in the entire country and covered almost 90 per cent of domestic production and sales. However, during its expansion, the Company was exposed to growing protests from domestic producers and small shoemakers. Those protests lasted almost a decade, peaking at the turn of 1935/1936, by organizing mass demonstrations, which occasionally grew into violent incidents. These protests caused the adoption of several measures by the Yugoslav authorities, which limited the business of the company but did not adopt legislation that would take the form of a law, the so-called Lex Bata, which were adopted in Switzerland and France. After that peak, the protests slowly subsided, so that at the end of the decade, Bata completely took over the market of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. en
