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

Yet Another Berisha Fraud

Albania News
    Sali Berisha's vote rigging is a serious setback for Albania's democratic process. But it should not have come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Berisha because it was just the latest in a long line of his many assaults on democratic institutions.
    Gary Q. Kokalari - Political Analyst

    By Gary Q. Kokalari

    As monitors reported, Albania's recent elections failed to meet international standards, and the fault for this failure falls squarely on Berisha's shoulders. This is because prior to the elections he controlled the levers of power that gave him the ability to hold elections that would have met international standards. But conducting fair elections was far less important to Berisha than maintaining power, and anyone who was hoping for clean elections had to be dreaming.

    Vote rigging was just one of the many manipulations Berisha used to undermine Albania's fledgling democracy. No less of an abuse were Berisha's blatant efforts to intimidate the media and block free speech. With his heavy handed censorship of the media and his abuse of state assets, Berisha intentionally distorted the information disseminated to the public so that a large segment of eligible voters were unable to cast their votes with any degree of objectively.

NATO members 27 and 28 -- Albania and Croatia

Albania News
    It has been a long road of reforms and challenges, but Albania and Croatia are on course to join NATO next month. For both countries burdened by transition problems and difficulties, this is a huge step forward and the achieved strategic goal they longed for.

    Albania and Croatia are expected to become NATO's 27th and 28th members at the Alliance summit next week. The meeting -- which will mark the bloc's 60th anniversary -- will be held in Strasbourg-Kehl on April 3rd and 4th.

    Croatia's delegation in Strasbourg and Kehl will be led
    Nato Flag
    by Croatian President Stipe Mesic and Prime Minister Ivo Sanader. Albania will be represented by President Bamir Topi and Prime Minster Sali Berisha. US President Barack Obama is also expected to attend.

    In 2003, Albania, Croatia and Macedonia launched a common initiative called the Adriatic Charter Group, encouraged by the United States. However, Macedonia was blocked from joining the Alliance in 2008 when Greece vetoed the country's accession progress due to the ongoing name dispute.

    Both Croatia and Albania, however, have made great strides on their path towards Alliance accession. The countries set their top priorities to meet democratic standards, reduce corruption and fight organised crime, implement judicial reform, improve public administration and promote neighbourly relations.

    NATO member countries monitor the envisaged reforms and evaluate their implementation.

    Croatia entered NATO's Partnership for Peace (PfP) programme in 2000, kicking off its accession process. In May 2002, the country received an invitation to join NATO’s Membership Action Plan (MAP), confirming the Alliance's "open door" policy. The fulfillment of membership criteria was, at that point, no longer the responsibility of just the defence and foreign affairs ministrit.

    Both Croatian and Albanian troops are serving in the NATO-backed mission in Afghanistan.

    Pursuant to its MAP obligation, in October 2002 the government adopted the first Annual National Programme 2002/2003 which envisioned objectives and detailed the steps to keep the country on the path towards NATO membership.
