<nettime> Re: Kosovo


     
     dear Becha and other yugo nettimers,
     
     I seriously do not understand where the thousands of demonstrators who 
     were on the streets before, are now. Where are the angry websites, the 
     netcalls, the chats, the links etc. What are you all doing now? Is 
     this suddenly only a matter of nice but marginal groups like Women in 
     Black or the Peace School. Is Kosovo too far away or too different?
     Or maybe simply not important enough? 
     Adrienne van Heteren

On 7th March, in Belgrade, on main square, sometimes called Republic 
sometimes Liberty, "Center for Anti-war Action" and "Woman in black" 
organized protest stand against war in Kosovo. 
Less then 200 people were present. Mostly women, but also some men were 
holding transparents with texts: "Stop war", "Albanians are our sisters"... 
Woman in black had some leaflets (i will translate&send them soon), some 
photo-reporters were there also..
     
I was there with about 30 other young people from Peace School - we just 
came from Montenegro one day ago, and we were very concerned about new 
violence that is taking place on Kosovo, and afraid that our efforts to 
re-establish cooperation between our different countries and nations will 
become even more difficult.

The Union of Kosovo Women will join the dissenting
  chorus at noon on Sunday over last week's civilian 
  deaths in the Drenica region. They announced their 
  protest on Saturday which will also be held outside 
  the U.S. Cultural Center.
