Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism. Sign and Join this petition

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

Albania News
    About the Video that shocked albanians and Albanian/Greek situation , watch here. Video from Sami Flamuri.

    Many young Albanians have been discussing in different internet sites about the call to suspend
    consumption of Greek products in the country as a response for the Greek army video, which showed Greek soldier's singing an offensive song against Albanians.

    Several Albanian web forums and blogs have published a list of Greek owned businesses & products, including four banks, several petrol station networks as well as food and beverage products produced in Greece or in Albania, by Greek companies.

    Some Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country.

    In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country.



    A private video showing Greek soldier's singing "We are gone a make shoe-strings with Albanian guts" was published last week on the Internet, then was commented by the Greek and Albanian media.

    Together with the first video there was a second video where the soldiers were singing an anti-Turkish song.

    As a result of the Greek soldier’s video, Albania was swept a different protests led by citizens, also in reaction to the government failure to push for a formal protest against Greece. Small groups of protesters burned Greek flags through Albania, however, this type of protests did not reach Tirana.

    Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties.

    Last week, OMONIA, a NGO representing the Greek minority in Albania, called to stop the burning their national symbol.
