Reminder: Demonstration on Parliament Hill on Sunday, April 18 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Canadian Friends of the Kosovars' Committee is holding a
demonstration on Parliament Hill on Sunday, April 18 from 4:30 PM to
6:30 PM.  The demonstration is aimed at encouraging current Canadian
and NATO intervention and actions in the Balkans. The objectives of
the demonstration are:

 To support the Canadian and NATO sailors, soldiers and airmen
  fighting for a more moral and just world based on the respect for
  the fundamental human rights of all citizens regardless of ethnicity,
  religion, sex, and other designations contained within
  United Nations Declaration on the Rights Of Man
 To protest the cruel and calculated ethnic cleansing perpetrated by
  the Milosevic regime against the innocent Kosovar people
  reminiscent of the Killing Fields of Cambodia
 To shun negotiations with alleged war criminals like Slobodan
  Milosevic, and force unqualified Serbian compliance with
  international covenants on human rights
 To suggest an equitable solution for the self-determination of the
   Kosovo people
 To offer moral and material support to the Kosovar refugees on
  arrival in Canada.

We welcome the Government of Canada's decision to airlift Kosovo
refugees from Albania and Macedonia to Canada and offering
humanitarian assistance to the needy on their arrival with an
understanding of the international obligations to ensure their right
of return to Kosovo, and their safety within their homeland free of
Serbian repression.

Individual and families are encouraged to come out to this community
demonstration in front of Parliament Hill to show support of  our
Government's commitment to fight Serbian genocide against the innocent
people of Kosovo on Sunday, April 18 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.  You are
also encouraged to send this message to your friends and colleagues
and encourage them to come out to protest against Serbian
state-sponsored terror against helpless Kosovar civilians.
