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

World ViP:

Obama rides the rails to DC, packing nation's hope

USA
    WASHINGTON – Invoking hope and history, President-elect Barack Obama rolled into the capital
    Michelle Obama, left with her husband, President-elect Barack Obama, wave at War Memorial Plaza in Baltimore
    city Saturday night pledging to help bring the nation "a new Declaration of Independence" and promising to rise to the stern challenges of the times. He kicked off a four-day inaugural celebration with a daylong rail trip, retracing the path Abraham Lincoln took in 1861.

    Obama began his day in Philadelphia, where he said the young nation had faced its "first true test" as a fragile democracy. He ended it in Washington, where his own tests await after his inauguration on Tuesday.

    The president-in-waiting drew on a grand heritage of American giants as he appealed "not to our easy instincts but to our better angels," an echo of Lincoln's first inaugural address. He took note of the enormous challenges that lie ahead and promised to act with "fierce urgency," a phrase often used by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Riding a vintage railcar on his whistle-stop trip to Washington, Obama carried with him the hopes of a nation weary of war, frightened of economic chaos and searching for better days. Vice President-elect Joe Biden joined the journey en route, from his home in Delaware, and spoke for many when he said he was excited and ready for Tuesday.

    Then, sobered by the challenges of governing, Biden added: "I think it's Wednesday we need to be ready."

    Obama was smiling and confident throughout the day and across the miles, reaching at each stop for history's lessons. In Philadelphia, he noted the risks taken by the men who declared America independent from Britain. In Wilmington, he applauded the state that first ratified the Constitution. And in Baltimore, he hailed the troops at Fort McHenry who beat back the British navy and inspired the poem that became "The Star-Spangled Banner."

    Washington pulsed with anticipation of Obama's swearing in as the nation's first black president. The city was aflutter with preparations for four days of parties and pomp, shadowed at every turn by layer upon layer of security. For every banner or piece of bunting that was going up around the city, there was a concrete barrier or metal fence at the ready as well.

    Revelers eager to get a head start on the celebration already were flowing into the city.

Ex-President Of Finland Is Awarded Peace Prize

WORLD
    PARIS, Oct. 10 -- Martti Ahtisaari, the former Finnish president who has been a tireless mediator
    Martti Ahtisaari
    in conflicts around the world for more than three decades, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday and expressed hope that the prize will help him raise funds for further peacemaking in hot spots to come.

    By Edward Cody- Washington Post

    The Norwegian Nobel Committee picked Ahtisaari, 71, from a 197-name list of nominees including jailed Chinese dissidents and the recently liberated Colombian hostage Ingrid Betancourt. Leaving aside headline-grabbing figures, the committee honored a corpulent former schoolteacher and diplomat known for indefatigable persistence in negotiations to bring peaceful closes to wars in countries including Namibia, Indonesia, Yugoslavia and Northern Ireland.

    "He is a world champion when it comes to peace, and he never gives up," Ole Danbolt Mjoes, the awards committee chairman, told reporters in Oslo.

    "Through his untiring efforts and good results, he has shown what role mediation of various kinds can play in the resolution of international conflicts," the committee said in announcing the award. "The Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to express the hope that others may be inspired by his efforts and his achievements."

About Benedict XVI's Papacy And U.S. Visit

WORLD
    Pope To Diplomats: Respect Human Rights

    NEW YORK (CBS) ― Pope Benedict XVI told diplomats at the United Nations on Friday that
    Pope Benedict XVI
    respect for human rights was the key to solving many of the world's problems, while cautioning that international cooperation was threatened by "the decisions of a small number."

    The pontiff, addressing the U.N. General Assembly on his first papal trip to the U.S., said the organization's work is vital. But he raised concerns that power is concentrated among just handful of players.

    "Multilateral consensus," he said, speaking in French, "continues to be in crisis because it is still subordinated to the decisions of a small number."

    The world's problems call for collective interventions by the international community, he said.

World Economy
    Europe must wean itself off oil and gas, says Declan J. Ganley, and the continent's entrepreneurs can help to make this happen

    By Declan J. Ganley - the most successful businessman of Europe who has its presence in Albania through "Anglo Adriatic Investment Fund" (with over 45,000 shareholders, a value of 120 million usd)

    Declan J. Ganley
    "We must assert ourselves as an active political agent. God willing, with the fall of the dollar, the deviant US imperialism will fall as soon as possible too."

    With these words at OPEC's meeting last November, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez gave notice of his intent, together with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to use OPEC as a political weapon to hold to ransom the Western and developing worlds. In the face of such threats and with the price of oil climbing rapidly, Europe needs to assert itself to engineer a new, low-carbon energy future.

    A 2006 Eurostat report found that the EU's energy demand was more than 1.5bn tonnes of oil equivalent per annum and that we depend on imports for 56% of our energy needs, mostly oil and gas. This dangerous dependency poses serious risks for Europe's future whether viewed through the lens of climate change or economic and political security. Nonetheless, Europeans can turn this threat into an historic opportunity, but only if we rapidly create a new energy paradigm.

    Utilising lessons learned from the telecommunications revolutions, I believe that we can harness one of Europe's greatest assets ' entrepreneurship ' to revolutionise the way that we acquire and use energy, break our petroleum dependence and stimulate innovation and job creation.

Russian Refuses Math's Highest Honor

    Reclusive Russian Wins, Then Refuses, Math's Highest Honor for Breakthrough on Study of Shapes

    By DANIEL WOOLLS

    MADRID, Spain Aug 22, 2006 (AP)— A reclusive Russian won the math world's highest honor
    Gregory Perelman
    Tuesday for solving a problem that has stumped some of the discipline's greatest minds for a century but he refused the award.

    Grigory Perelman, a 40-year-old native of St. Petersburg, won a Fields Medal often described as math's equivalent of the Nobel prize for a breakthrough in the study of shapes that experts say might help scientists figure out the shape of the universe.

    John Ball, president of the International Mathematical Union, said that he had urged Perelman to accept the medal, but Perelman said he felt isolated from the mathematics community and "does not want to be seen as its figurehead." Ball offered no further details of the conversation.

    Besides shunning the award for his work in topology, Perelman also seems uninterested, according to colleagues, in a separate $1 million prize he could win for proving the Poincare conjecture, a theorem about the nature of multidimensional space.

Giorgio Napolitano - a true believer in democracy

World VIP

    Giorgio Napolitano (born June 29, 1925 in Naples, Italy), an Italian politician and former
    Giorgio Napolitano
    lifetime senator, is the President of the Italian Republic. His election took place on May 10, 2006 and his term started with the swearing-in ceremony held on May 15.

    Biography

    In 1942, when he was 17 years old, Napolitano matriculated to the University of Naples Federico II. He adhered to the local GUF (Gruppo Universitario Fascista, University Fascist Group), the fascist student organization, where he found a number of students who shared his negative view of the regime. As he wrote, the group "was in fact a true breeding ground of anti-fascist intellectual energies, disguised and somewhat tolerated".[1] He later founded an anti-fascist communist group which, after the armistice, took part in several resistance actions against Nazi and pro-Mussolini forces.

Angela Merkel or ''Iron Girl''

World VIP

    In early 2006, polls showed that Angela Merkel, having been in office for only about 100 days, had the highest approval rate among Germans ever to be recorded for a chancellor since 1949.

    Angela Dorothea Merkel (pronounced /aŋgela dorothea merkel/) (born in Hamburg, Germany on July 17, 1954) is
    Angela Merkel
    the current Chancellor of Germany. As chairwoman of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) she leads a coalition with its sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), and with the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), formed after the 2005 federal election.

    Merkel, elected to the German Parliament from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, has been the chairwoman of the CDU since 2000, and Chairwoman of the CDU-CSU parliamentary party group from 2002 to 2005. She is the first female Chancellor of Germany, the first former citizen of the German Democratic Republic to lead the reunited Germany and the first woman to lead Germany since it became a modern nation-state in 1871. She is also, as of 2006, the youngest person to be chancellor since the Second World War. On 1 January 2007, Merkel will become the third woman to chair the G8.
