NEW YORK MEMORIAL FOR SREBRENICA, JULY 11

Tuesday, July 11th marks the fifth anniversary of the fall of Srebrenica. Nearly 8,000 men and boys were massacred by Serb troops as Dutch soldiers stood by.

The UN has issued a remorseful report on its role during the greatest massacre in Europe since World War II. But, as yet, only 2% of the disappeared have been exhumed, 1% identified and only one perpetrator has been convicted and one other arrested for trial at the International War Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia at the Hague.

Around the world--in Sarajevo, Paris, London, and New York--memorial services will be held both to remember those who were murdered and to demand that those responsible be prosecuted for their crimes against humanity.

Be a part of the New York memorial:
5:30 - 6:30 pm a demonstration will be held in front of the New York Public Library (at 5th Ave and 42nd St.).
6:30 - 7:30 a memorial, with speakers, will be held in Bryant Park (behind the library).

SPEAKERS
-Bianca Jagger, human rights activist
-David Rohde, Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Endgame: The Betrayal and Fall of Srebrenica
-Scott Johnson, former aide to the Tribunal
-Aisha Al-Adawiyyah, from Women in Islam
-Sharon Silber, international guest at the 1997 Srebrenica Women's March in Bosnia.
-Sheri Fink, former researcher in Kosovo and Bosnia for Physicians for Human Rights
