Statement
Women Solidarity against War

Unfortunately, war tension in the Balkans have not become a part of the past, yet.

The peace agreement in Macedonia is still very fragile. Each side should put more efforts as to stop the violence. The international community is obliged to stop the renewal of violence and to disarm all sides, that do not behave in accordance with the signed peace agreement.

The civilians are, as in all previous wars, the most tragic victims of armed conflicts. The number of displaced persons has already gone beyond 115 000.

Seis años del exodo de la Krajina

Comunicado público

Estos días se cumplen seis años de otra tragedia y otro crimen contra la población civil.

El sexto aniversario de la masacre de Srebrenica

El miércoles, 11 de julio de 2001, se cumple el sexto aniversario del comienzo de la mayor masacre ocurrida en Europa desde la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Ese día unidades del ejército de la República Srpska comenzaron la liquidación de varios miles de varones adultos y jóvenes de la zona segura de Srebrenica. El número exacto de los ejecutados nunca será conocido; pese a todo, está comprobado que en Potocari perdieron la vida más de 3000 vecinos de Srebrenica; el número total de víctimas es probablemente tres veces más elevado.

Woman in Black public statement on Milosevic's extradition and the war in Macedonia

It is with the utmost pleasure that we acknowledge the news that the man who brought us so much evil is finally in the Hague. The fact that Slobodan Milosevic will have to answer for wars which he started and lead, and for ethnic cleansing which he ordered, will not be much consolation to the victims of his crime and madness. But for those who have survived we are awarded a certain satisfaction and all that remains is for us to congratulate the governement of the Republic of Serbia for its responsible and courageous move in extraditing Milosevic to the Hague.
