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 law on secret police challenged

  • Albanian opposition challenges law on communist files
  • Soros turns the micro-credit foundation into a robbery scheme

    TIRANA, Albania (AP) - Albania's main opposition
    Civil Society Abused
    party launched a legal challenge Friday to new legislation banning former members and informants of the Communist secret police from serving in elected office or as judges. Critics say the law gives conservative Prime Minister Sali Berisha sweeping powers to target political opponents.

    The Socialist Party, headed by Tirana Mayor Edi Rama, challenged the law in the Constitutional Court, saying it violates at least 28 articles of the Constitution.

    The widely feared Sigurimi secret police force was instrumental in preserving Albania's ruthless Communist regime, which ruled for four decades until 1990.

    International institutions _ the Council of Europe, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the European Union _ as well as the United States have expressed concern the law fails to comply with international standards of democracy.

    Albania, seeking eventual membership of the European Union, is sensitive to international criticism of its political reforms. Parliament approved the law last month, despite a walkout by the Socialists and other smaller parties.

    Albanian opposition challenges law on communist files

    (TIRANA) - Albanian opposition parties filed a legal complaint on Friday against a disputed law on opening up communist-era files and banning those
    Communist Propaganda on millions of Slogans on every streets of Albania claiming "The Victory of Socialism over Capitalism"
    linked to the former secret police from public jobs.

    "The law on opening up police files breaches at least 28 articles of the Albanian Constitution and violates human rights," said Fatmir Xhafa, a former justice minister and opposition Socialist Party deputy.

    The application of the law "should be suspended until the Constitutional Court issues its ruling on the complaint," Xhafa told reporters.

    Under the law adopted in December, people linked to the Sigurimi secret police between 1944 and 1990, when a multi-party system was introduced, are banned from holding public posts.

    The Socialists, who boycotted the parliamentary vote, have said they were not against the law itself but its possible political exploitation by Prime Minister Sali Berisha and his right-wing Democratic Party.

    But the ruling Democrats insist on applying the legislation, saying "the Constitutional Court is incapable of judging this law, as some of its members have a conflict of interest because of their own communist past."

    "The law will be applied," Deputy Prime Minister Genc Pollo told reporters.

    The legislation has also been criticised by international officials who have called for it to be revised.

    Among those expressing concerns were the United States, Britain and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), who have called for more consultations.

    "The law has serious constitutional and political implications, and postponing the vote to allow for wider consultation and public debate would be welcome," said the OSCE, Europe's elections and rights watchdog.

    The European Council also declared in mid-January that the law had posed problems linked to human rights.

    The opposition claimed Berisha and his party would use the law to sack justice officials involved in investigations of widespread corruption in the country, with cabinet members suspected of wrongdoing.

    The law establishes a five-member commission charged with checking public officials -- from the country's president to high school masters.

    Late communist dictator Enver Hoxha led the Balkan country through more than four decades of international isolation using the feared intelligence service to maintain his grip on power.

    Soros turns the micro-credit foundation into a robbery scheme

    Sot magazine is showing from time to time the criminal financial activity of Soros in Albania. This activity has brought to him very large and unique profits. Sot magazine with the juridical proves has attested the Soros usury system.

    All the micro-credit schemes of non-bank subjects are known about their help in the economic development. The interests are acceptable and prop for their clients that usually are that part of population that intend to start or increase a small business. The reason why these schemes are with high risk is because that part of clients is not confident with the ruff bank system. In order to reduce this risk the interests and the time limit are small.

    All the micro-credit schemes used in Albania are monitored and supported by the Albanian Government and the international institutions, in order to help the economic development and too fight the poverty. Although Besa was positioned as the biggest non-bank institution, it was made exception about its activity monitoring. Beas acting as a Soros spin-off has broken the Albanian law many times and particularly the international agreements hiding behind the war against the poverty and economical development.

    Besa has given credit in illegal ways. One of the most important conditions about the mini-credit non-bank institutions is the amounting of the sum given. It results to us that the sum allowed to Besa
    was 20 thousand USD (about 20 million leke). The loan time was 36 months.

    These conditions are been broken regularly, as for the ciphers and the time. The violation that is shocking all the Albanian bank system is the over passing of the amount limit by 10-15 times.

    One of the proves we are publishing is the case of some weeks ago when the 3 Besa’s Bajram Muca has presented an executive title to by the Shkodra’s Court.

    The credit contract no.9677 date 27.11.2006. The amount was 21.300.000 leke (more than 200 thousand USD).

    The Albanian legislature admits the executive titles all the non-bank contracts from 14.07.2008 with law no.9953. But it is sure that Besa Fund has lost this right until July 2008 because is an unlicensed institution. This thing makes impossible releasing Executive Orders by any court. This pretension of is favoured by the juridical system as a consequence of Fullani’s lies with the intention to hide the Besa’s illegal status. The illegal sequestrations of the Albanian’s citizen proprieties by Soros, is the new standard applied by this usurer in Albania.

    This is how Besa has broken the laws and the international and national agreements giving credit amounts over 200 thousand USD.
