Organized Protests Against Kosovo Independence & For Serbia, Sprouting Up All Over the Globe!

Greeks display a banner ''Kosovo is Serbia'' during a Champions League round of 16 soccer match between Olympiakos and Chelsea at the Karaiskakis Stadium in the port of Piraeus, near Athens


Kosovo Albanians immoral & illegal declaration of "independence" and secession from Serbia have begun to inspire protests, worldwide. Over the course of today, I have been informed of a variety of planned protests against Kosovo Independence and below is a list of protests I know of so far.

Free citizens of free countries have a right to peacefully protest their government's policies and they have their grievances heard. If the borders of Serbia can be redrawn AGAINST the will of both the Serbian government and the Serbian people by international bureaucrats who have no business redrawing anyone's borders, then the same can happen to you and your country! Come show your support for freedom! Show your support for Serbia!

Please show your support for the rights of sovereignty, international law and against the unelected bureaucrats who think that they own all of us!

Let me stress that these are to be peaceful protests. No violence will be tolerated.

I am saddened by the recent events that have transpired in Kosovo. Thank you for your insightful explanations and analysis.

I am a bit young, so I don't have first hand memory of the events of 1999. I am trying to get myself up to speed and understand the history of that conflict.

I also want to understand how these modern conflicts fit in the larger historical context. By any chance could you point me towards any online sources or printed books that could give me basic background information?

Thanks

Hi Nomodiphus!

There are several books listed on the right side of the page below the links section from Amazon which put Kosovo into the wider context. And for online sources, check the links.

This is truly a sad situation. Frankly, we are so on the wrong side of this issue, it embarrasses me to be "an American"!
