SAN FRANCISCO-->Friday, March 24, 2000, 5:00 pm: The War on Yugoslavia is Not Over! National Commemoration of the First Anniversary of the U.S.-NATO War against Yugoslavia Friday, March 24 5:00 pm -- Powell & Market Streets in SF. Sanctions remain in place against the people of Yugoslavia months after the bombing ended, causing hardship: lack of food, medicine, heating fuel and water. The US/NATO occupiers continue their destabilization campaign to dismantle what remains of the country, and the Pentagon is constructing a huge US military base in Kosovo. Serbian people in Kosovo are murdered by fascist KLA forces while NATO looks the other way. Over 250,000 Serbs, Roma and other nationalities have been driven from Kosovo by these KKK-style vigilantes. Yet, despite the difficulties, the struggle for justice for the people Yugoslavia must go on. Truth must prevail. Join us March 24, a national day of protest, to demand US/NATO Out of the Balkans! Sponsored by the International Action Center -- (415)821-6545

Anti-War demonstration Saturday, May 15 condemns bombing of Chinese Embassy and the continued U.S./NATO bombings

New York City: Friday, May 14, 11 am: Protest the bombing of the Chinese Embassy, Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47th St and 1st Ave.). This demonstration is organized by an Ad-hoc Committee of Overseas Chinese. Contact 212-865-7635 for more information.

The Ad-hoc Committee of Overseas Chinese against NATO Atrocities will hold a rally in front of the United Nations, Friday May 14, at 11:00 a.m., to protest the the missile attack against the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, which killed three and wounded more than twenty Chinese journalists and diplomats. The Committee demands justice in this connection, and calls for an immediate cessation of NATO bombing in all of Yugoslavia to pave way for a peaceful, negotiated settlement of the Kosovo question and to bring to an early end the untold suffering of both the Serbs and the Kosovars.. Basic positions and demands: We categorically reject the attempt to dismiss this brutal attack as merely 'a tragic mistake', or resulting from 'faulty info'. We demand an independent inquiry to bring out the full truth regarding the military attack against the Chinese Embassy, which we are convinced was either premeditated or the result of egregious criminal negligence. In either case, those responsible must be identified and punished. We condemn the war against Yugoslavia waged by US-led NATO forces, which has subjected its civilian population to the terror of continued attacks by cluster bombs and cruise missiles. This war is the primary cause of the humanitarian catastrophe in Kosovo to the extent it has brought about a state marked by fear, terror and increased ethnical violence. We demand an immediate end to all attacks on Yugoslavia. . *To endorse this rally or for further info. please call 1212-8657635 or e-mail: tung@worldnet.att.net

New York City: MONDAY, APRIL 12, 1999. AT 5:30. P.M: NATO aggression against Yugoslavia, and tell Jerry Nadler that his pro-war policy won’t wash on the west side. Demonstrate for peace at Congressman Nadler’s offices:. at 11 beach street (between Varick and west Broadway, near the Canal Street stop on the A-train). Congressman Nadler pretends to be a progressive and represents one of the most liberal districts in this nation. Nevertheless, in blatant disregard of the interests of his district, and showing nothing but scorn for his constituents’ pressing domestic needs. He has called for more NATO bombing, and he has even dared to proclaim that United States ground forces should invade Serbian soil

We know that the war is wrong. We know that the Serbs were among the most valiant fighters against the Nazis. We know that so many of their foes were and are fascist to the core, and we are outraged that NATO has been silent, throughout this decade, as so many Serbs have been brutally ejected from their homes in Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia and Kosovo as the ghost of the Austro-Hungarian empire and Germanic Power rises under the auspices of American Bombs. And we know that it is nothing short of madness to compare the alleged faults of the Serbs to Hitler’s War Against the Jews. Very simply, the Albanians, according to NATO, are being made to leave their homes. The Jews, by contrast, were not allowed to leave. The Jews were made to die.
