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.

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

Albanian Cuisine:

Tarator and other albanian dishes

    Tarator (in Albania) is a cold soup (or a liquid salad), popular in the summertime in Albania and the Republic of Macedonia. It is made of yoghurt,
    cucumbers, garlic, walnuts, dill, vegetable oil, and water. It is best served chilled or even with ice. Local variations may replace yoghurt with water and vinegar, omit nuts or dill, or add bread. The cucumbers may on very rare occasions be replaced with lettuce or carrots.

    Tarator is consumed in Albania in almost the same manner it is consumed in other countries. However, water, nuts, fruits and dill aren't used. Vegetable oil is often substituted with olive oil.

    In a different variation, this dish is enriched with a plain omelet, cut into little pieces and added to the mixture. Due to the richness the eggs add, this variation of tarator may be consumed as a main course

    This unique cuisine uses a wide variety of spices, meats, poultry & fish, including, but most certainly not limited to, olives, grapes, oregano, chicken,
    Albanian Cuisine
    mullet & lamb. It is Balkan cooking at its best. The majority of cookbooks & culinary "experts", consider every recipe that comes from the Adriatic or Ionian mainland as being of Greek origin. Albania lays claim to most of mainland Greece through the Epirus area & therefore to the much of the foods that originate from that area as well.
    For 1000's of years, Albanian & Greek cultures have been so entangled that it is basically impossible to differentiate between the cuisine or the origin of these foods. What small differences that do exist in the preparation of dishes is individual rather than cultural. Both cultures use techniques that have been taught to them for literally 1000's of years. Albanians have the right to claim this antique & historical cuisine just as the Greeks do but cookbooks & history books all fail to mention these facts. Lamb cooked for 1000's of years on a rotisserie spit, was done so both Greece & Albania using the same spices to make the same dish but with a different name.

    Albanian cuisine combines what I think is the best of the various cuisines that amalgamate in that region. In the recipes herein you will see some things that you know form Greek cooking, from Turkish cooking & from Italian cooking. Surprise! Italy is just across the narrow Adriatic Sea from Albania.

Fried Mint Meatballs - Qofte te Ferguara

Albanian Culture

    Margarita's Recipes

    Kofta, small ground-meat patties fried or grilled,
    Fried Mint Meatballs
    are a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine. There are as many variations on this basic dish as ways to spell its name in the Roman alphabet. Given the extent of Turkish influence in Albania, I was not surprised to find them here as well. Qofte tė fėrguara seems to be a common dish in Albania, I found several slightly different recipes for it, and the one I made was a combination of them all. All my guests liked them very much, specially dipped in yougurt (this Afghani recipe is actually very common in the Middle East and I'm pretty sure they eat it in Albania as well). I thought they were tasty, though I've liked other versions (such as Armenian and Lebanese ones) better.

Albanian People

    Albanian cuisine consists of local dishes from
    around the country of Albania. Many of these dishes are typical of the Balkans and indeed the Mediterranean, but some are local specialties.

    The main meal of the Albanians is lunch and it is usually accompanied by a salad of fresh vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, olives, olive oil, vinegar and salt.
