Stjepan Radic was a Croatian politican.
He was famous for fighting for Croatian independence after First world war. He was against big interests so for this he was imprisoned several times and eventually assasinated in a parliament of Kingdom of Serbs,Croats and Slovenes.
He was a real fighter and one of the rare politician in Croatia I respect.
His statue in Zagreb is near the main square and he is rarely remembered by people today. Also the party that is supposed to follow his tradition is like the rest on he Croatian political scene; bad and uninspiring.
His fight was supported by many people at the time and the rallies would be attented by more then 100000 people which parties in Croatia can only dream of today.
