Humanitarian Aid workers captured, to be tried as spies

In recent developments:

  • Serbian forces attacked and crossed the border into Albania and occupied a border town, Kemenica.
  • Humanitarian aid workers from CARE were captured by Serbian troops and are to be tried as spies
  • Macedonian border troops steal relief aid from Yusuf Islam(Cat Stevens)
  • Albright makes shocking hint of offer to Serbs to allow some of their forces to remain in Kosova.
  • New reports of war crimes, including rape, using refugees as human shields, and mass executions.
With the number of displaced refugees exceeding now 1 million or 50% of the Kosovar population, of whom 700,000 have been forced out in the last three weeks alone, with no end in sight for the Serb atrocities, Kosovar independence must be asserted and recognized and the military campaign against the Serbs must be expanded. The Kosovars must be armed and defended against the Serbian aggression.

Contact your elected officials, express your support for the air strikes, and make the following demands:

  • Use ground troops to STOP GENOCIDE now
  • Air drop food for 600,000 Kosovars on the mountains of Kosova
  • Sustain air strikes until total Serb withdrawal
  • Recognize Kosovar independence
  • Arm Kosovars to defend themselves
  • Arrest and Try War Criminals, including Slobodan Milosevic
