BOSTON COMMEMORATION OF THE SREBRENICA MASSACRE

Friday, July 14
12:30 - 1:30
Copley Square, Boston


This July marks the fifth anniversary of the massacre at Srebrenica. In 1995, 8,000 Bosnian men and boys from Srebrenica were killed by Serb forces while under the protection of the United Nations. The chief architects of this massacre, Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, have both been indicted twice for war crimes by War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague but have not been apprehended by a reluctant NATO-led peacekeeping force. Only a handful of the tens of thousands of Bosnian Muslims forced from Srebrenica have been able to return to their homes. As thousands of Muslim women from Srebrenica are forced to carry on their lives without their husbands and sons, with little government support, and with little information about the fate of their loved ones, there is a growing movement by Serbs worldwide and among revisionist intellectuals in the United States to deny that the massacre took place. We must not let the world forget this tragedy!

Stand with us this Friday to demand that justice be done and stand in solidarity with the people of Srebrenica who have been forced to live in uncertainty five years after this tragic event occurred.

We will provide banners, a petition, posters and literature. Please come out and show your support.

This event is organized by Friends of Bosnia and the Boston Group Against Ethnic Cleansing.

For more information, contact Glenn Ruga at 978-461-0909 or Victoria Poupko at 617-738-9325.
To sign an online petition for justice in Srebrenica, visit the Coalition for International Justice Website at www.cij.org or the Srebrenica Justice Campaign at http://ds.dial.pipex.com/srebrenica.justice/

The commemoration will be in Copley Square near the fountain adjacent to Boylston Street.
