flag Yugoslavia: Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo - Kosova


UNITED NATIONS PROTECTION FORCE was located in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia since March 1992. Their headquarters were in Zagreb, Croatia, and until recently nobody knew when they'd leave. During their tenure, they dutifully observed, recorded and wrote some awsome statements on the most egregious human rights abuses in Europe since 1945. However, following the Dayton peace agreement UNPROFOR soon passed their duty to NATO. This put an end to the long-standing Serb-French intelligence connection in Bosnia (although the same is still present in Kosovo). Yves Gaudeul, a French parlamentarian, for example, gave aerial pictures of tunnel under the airport that was the only save way in and out of Sarajevo during the times of war to a Serbian colonel, Milenko Indic - who was, allegedly, involved in capturing and torturing French soldiers. French "blue helmet", Patrick Barriot, actually became an "ambassador" for Republika Srpska in Paris, shortly before he was discharged from the army. David Rohde wrote a book about shameful behavior of French military regarding the fall of Srebrenica. Viewing all this in perspective it is now clear why general Jean-Rene Bachelet, one of the UNPROFOR commanders, so vehemently defended Serbian demand that Dayton should be changed in a way not to allow the unification of Sarajevo (Le Monde, December, 2, 1995).


NATO, our dummy big brother is watching you (they warn you explicitly at their site). Yet they rarely watch themselves. At their site you could download the old Yugoslav communist flags from before 1991 well into the war. Isn't that curious for an organization that spent 40 years fighting communism? Yet, they were trusted to take over Bosnia. Here is also a gopher full of NATO press releases. For complete, yet probably controlled information from NATO-occupied Bosnia check their Operation Joint Endeavor or Department of Defense's Bosnialink web pages or the Operation's gopher. (see the map).

The Balkans were called "Balkan" by Ottoman Turks by the mountain Balkan in Bulgaria. "Bal" means honey in Turkish. "Kan" means blood. Wasn't that a highly appropriate name? Click here for an index of issue related resources. The music that plays while you read this page (if you have a RealAudio Player) is the song "Balkans" written by one of the most intriguing former Yugoslav rock artists, Dzoni Stulic (who lives in Amsterdam now).

Artists for Kosovar Refugees: A Benefit Auction
Organized by RACCOON Inc., Name.Space Inc. and Women in Black, New York . All proceeds go to the Women in Black of Belgrade and Motrat Qiriazi of Kosova. All donations (money or in kind) will be made out to RACCOON Inc., a 501 (c) (3) not-for- profit organization. The aim of the event is to raise support for the Kosovar refugees on both Serbia and Kosovo through an auction of works by established and emerging artists and photojournalists. For the auction, rather than hanging the art, we plan to use internet and digital projectors to show the art simultaneously in the Name.Space gallery in New York and in the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, Germany where the Name.Space is currently exhibiting. The art pieces will also be accessible through the WWW for two weeks following the event. Bidding will be handled from the auctioneer's block in New York. We are still discussing the technical details about bidding in Germany and bidding over the internet. LOCATION & TIME: Auction is to be held on July 31, 1999 from 10 am to 12 pm EST at the Name.Space, 11 East 4th Street, 2nd floor, New York, U.S. and from 4 pm to 6 pm at Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, Friedrich- Wilhelm-Strasse 40, Duisburg, Germany.

War At The Crossroads
Why won't the media explain what's behind the upheaval and "ethnic cleansing" in the former Yugoslavia as they justify the deployment of US troops and aerial bombing? Go beyond the media sound bite analysis of "ancient ethnic hatreds" to the real political context for the post-Yugoslav wars. WAR AT THE CROSSROADS is a consice historical primer on the history and roots of the Balkan wars from ancient times to the present, exploring imperialist agendas in the region from the Roman Empire to NATO.

NewBreak the logic of war! Desert! Open the borders! The disastrous plight of the civilian population in Kosovo is continuing unabatedly. Whether they like it or not, the NATO countries have begun to play an active role in the crisis-ridden region of the Balkans. They must take responsibility by not only offering humanitarian aid and shelter to the civilian population, but also by opening up their own borders. Any attempts at fleeing the war must be actively supported, in whichever way possible. (Press Coverage)

Cyberslavia claims no territorial possessions and it takes just a few kW of electricity to survive. You can telnet to there from here.
