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:

Damir Fazlic complaint Albanian journalist Mero Baze

Posted on Friday, January 02 @ 16:18:56 PST by classiclady

Albania News
    Damir Fazlic said it intends to prosecute the journalist Mero Baze, chief editor of the Albanian daily
    Mr. Mero Baze
    "Theme". Mero Baze was the first journalist in the Albanian newspapers to discover the character Fazlic and to provide interesting material on which then began investigations of the Albanian prosecutor. The complaint was lodged with the Supreme Court English which, despite only accept the demands of special interest for the state, has accepted the complaints of a "fixer" as Fazlic.

    The much talked Damir Fazlic was arrested for racketeering and money laundering, has reacted to journalistic investigations conducted against him, saying that "attacks aimed at him and his family are out of any ethical standard, aimed only to harm intentionally." Fazlic has announced that it decided to open a judicial process against the chief editor of the Albanian daily "Theme", Mero Baze.

    Theme will be the first between newspapers Albanians that led to the public Albanian Fazlic of irregularities, and thanks to the Articles of Baze the prosecutor began inquiries.

    Fazlic has also promised that the compensation money that surely will get the winning of this process will be transferred to the humanitarian "Children of Srebrenica" ( "Srebrenica Djeca).

    "During the last 4 months, Mr. Mero Baze, violating any ethical and professional standards, consciously chose to publish articles and reports are not true, speaking to me, my family and my business. As I have stated from the beginning of this story, all the allegations published by Baze about me are lies. " This is what we read on the official declaration issued by Damir Fazlic to the media.

    "The wicked and irresponsible publication of this information - continues the statement - is a violation and trampling my legal rights, and I can afford to be published these lies without any consequence for the leaders who are perpetrators."

    Therefore advised that "for this reason, my lawyers in the United Kingdom have taken the first steps and conditions needed to kick start against Mr. Baze, a trial for defamation and intentional publication of allegations by the Italian Supreme Court" . Be advised, however, that the Supreme Court considers the most important issues of the state.

    In fact, only 5% of the requests that are made, and only high-level disputes are submitted to senior judges, and from this point of view it seems strange that it has accepted a similar request from an apparently simple "fixer" as Fazlic.

    Mr. Damir Fazlic
    "Of course - continues Fazlic - Mr. Baze will have the right to defend itself during this process and will also have the opportunity to present evidence, if of course it will have to prove the truth of the publications that concerns me and if these publications have some other point support, in addition to non-proven rumors and machinations. However I am sure that Mr. Baze has no evidence, because it does not exist and I can not wait to compare with him in a hall of the Court. " Damir Fazlic also added that "if freedom of expression and media freedom are the basis of any democratic society, that freedom can not but have some limitations and its abuse can not fail to have consequences."

    He also reiterated that this complaint will serve as an example for other journalists. "When the media are abusing their freedom, choosing to follow Lies' manufactured 'and damaging, cease to exercise a public function, defensible and necessary, and become a force that causes damage and can be held accountable for their actions before the law . I am confident that the lies and gossip that Baze has published about me, will be considered as part of this class of shares not defend, and that anyone has written to you to take its responsibilities. In addition, a conviction for Mero Baze, as a result of its actions, will serve as an example for the media that despite the freedom of expression is an important and necessary for a free and democratic society, should bear in mind the obligation of responsibility to inform the public with the truth, "says the statement of the lawyers of Fazlic. In the closing statement, Fazlic has assured that it had "no-profit organization to be learned from the process, but only to do what it is for me to defend myself and others from this evil and journalist who works out of all control."

    However, as can Fazlic believe the accusations against him, investigators are still continuing the investigation. Indeed, a few weeks ago, the Tirana prosecutor questioned those who have sold Damir Fazlic their land, to understand how they came into contact with him, and how they negotiated with the notary who had signed the contracts. The interrogation was deemed vital for the investigation process, which began two months ago in Albania by the Task Force of the Prosecutor of Tirana. Fazlic, owner of two land in the area of Porto Romano and Rinia village, north of Durres (now seized). Two days after the registration of the criminal proceedings against the Bosnian Serbs, the prosecutor has fixed the seizure of eight companies and other properties Fazlic. For its part Fazlic considered this order as illegal, heading to the court with a request in which prosecution is seeking the annulment of the seizure of his property.
