ONE AND ALL FOR INDEPENDENCE!


Dear friends,

We would like to notify you on our great concern related to the possible rising of tension in the Balkans due to the present delay in affirming Kosovo’s final status. This concern has pressed us, civil society actors and youth forums across the political spectrum, to organize a peaceful rally in name of Kosovo’s independence.

Through this rally we would like to call upon all international actors to respect the will of the people of Kosovo, and hence recognize Kosovo’s independence as a determining factor of stability and Euro-Atlantic integration for the region.

We urge you to join us in this initiative to demonstrate our unequivocal support for Kosovo’s independence. The rally will take place this Thursday, November 15, 2007, at 17:00 hrs. The rally will start with a peaceful march from Skanderbeg Square to Mother Teresa Square where we will also hold a concert with famous Albanian singers.

Part of this initiative is also a petition addressed to the United Nations and the trilateral negotiation partners USA, EU, and Russia.

We would like to use this opportunity to encourage different institutions, organizations, companies, and private individuals to provide their support to this initiative. Concurrently, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those that are currently engaged on a volunteer bases in organizing this rally.

Thank you in advance to all for your support!

Rally Organizers:

The uneasiness of when to announce support for Kosova's independence is mounting.

Rumors circulating are that Kosova should wait until summer 2008, when France assumes the presidency of the EU.
