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

Dr.Robert Elsie - the Master of Albanian Literature

Canadian VIP

    Robert Elsie (born in 1950 in Vancouver,
    Dr. Robert Elsie
    Canada) is an expert in Albanian culture and affairs.

    Elsie studied at the University of British Columbia, graduating in 1972 with a diploma in Classical Studies and Linguistics. In the following years, he continued his post-graduate studies at the Free University of Berlin, at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes and at the University of Paris IV in Paris, at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies in Ireland, and at the University of Bonn, where he finished his doctorate (Dr. Phil.) in 1978 at the Linguistics Institute.

    From 1978 on, Elsie was able to visit Albania several times with a group of students and professors from the University of Bonn, visits which first awakened in him an interest for the culture of the tiny and, at the time, exotic Balkan country. For several years consecutive, he also attended the International Seminar on Albanian Language, Literature and Culture, held in Prishtina (Kosova). From 1982 to 1987, he worked for the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bonn. Since that time he has worked as a freelance conference interpreter, primarily for Albanian and German.

    Robert Elsie is the author of numerous books and articles, in particular on various aspects of Albanian culture and affairs. He lives in the Eifel mountains of Germany, not far from the Belgian border.

CHRÉTIEN, Jean Joseph Jacques

Canadian VIP
    Term(s) of Office: 1993 - 2003

    1934 -

    Jean Chrétien - Canada's twentieth prime minister "The art of politics is learning to walk with your back to the wall, your elbows high, and a smile on your face. It's a survival game played under the glare of lights. If you don't learn that you're quickly finished. It's damn tough and you can't complain; you just have to take it and give it back. The press wants to get you. The opposition wants to get you. Even some of the bureaucrats want to get you. They all may have an interest in making you look bad and they all have ambitions of their own." -- Jean Chrétien, 1985.

    Jean Chrétien's greatest asset as Canada's twentieth prime minister is his long years of experience in Parliament and Cabinet. In government or in opposition, he has served with six prime ministers, held twelve ministerial positions and sat in Parliament for a total of twenty-seven years.

MULRONEY, Martin Brian

Canadian VIP
Term(s) of Office: 1984 - 1993

1939 -

Brian Mulroney

"Throughout our history, trade has been critical to Canada's livelihood. Now, almost one third of what we produce is exported. Few countries in the world are so dependent on trade. This trend ultimately threatens the jobs of many Canadians and the living standards of the nation as a whole. We must confront this threat. We must reverse this trend. To do so, we need a better, a fairer, and a more predictable trade relationship with the United States. At stake are more than two million jobs which depend directly on Canadian access to the U.S. market." -- Brian Mulroney, 1985
