Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism. Sign and Join this petition

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

Albania News:

Yet Another Berisha Fraud

Albania News
    Sali Berisha's vote rigging is a serious setback for Albania's democratic process. But it should not have come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Berisha because it was just the latest in a long line of his many assaults on democratic institutions.
    Gary Q. Kokalari - Political Analyst

    By Gary Q. Kokalari

    As monitors reported, Albania's recent elections failed to meet international standards, and the fault for this failure falls squarely on Berisha's shoulders. This is because prior to the elections he controlled the levers of power that gave him the ability to hold elections that would have met international standards. But conducting fair elections was far less important to Berisha than maintaining power, and anyone who was hoping for clean elections had to be dreaming.

    Vote rigging was just one of the many manipulations Berisha used to undermine Albania's fledgling democracy. No less of an abuse were Berisha's blatant efforts to intimidate the media and block free speech. With his heavy handed censorship of the media and his abuse of state assets, Berisha intentionally distorted the information disseminated to the public so that a large segment of eligible voters were unable to cast their votes with any degree of objectively.

My letter to Dritan Prifti

Albanian Economy
  • Mr. Gary Kokalari & MP. Mr. Dritan Prifti - their correspondences related to some Albanian Issues.

    September 27, 2009

    Mr. Dritan Prifti - Minister of Economy, Trade and Energy
    Dritan Prifti
    Minister of Economy, Trade and Energy
    Republic of Albania
    Tirana, Albania


    Now that you have been appointed Minister of Economy this puts you in an excellent position to do something about the abuses you wrote to me about in several of your email messages. To help you refresh your memory I've provided copies of several of the messages which appear below.

    For instance, you should now be in a position to gather evidence about the violation of the Serbian oil embargo that you claimed, per your November 3, 2008 email, was perpetrated by Sali Berisha. You are also now in a position to do something about the abuses in the telecom sector such as the deal between Berisha and Fatos Nano to sell Albtelecom to the Turks that you referred to in your December 7, 2006 email. Based on your comments, it appears there is a case to investigate both Berisha and Nano for corrupt practices. You are also in the position to finally do something about the telecom interconnection fee abuse that continues to burden Albanians with calling rates that are among the highest in the world. Nano and Berisha have helped perpetuate these fee arrangements, and as you know quite well, Meta was instrumental in setting up these structures so you are in a particularly good position to help unwind these biased agreements for the benefit of the people of Albania.

Albania’s election heads for deadlock

Albanian Politics Financial Times

    By Kerin Hope in Tirana

    Albania’s general election appeared headed for deadlock on Wednesday, with both the governing right-of-centre Democratic party and the opposition Socialists unable to win an outright majority in the 140-seat parliament.

    Albanian Election 2009
    A long drawn-out counting process after Sunday’s vote went into its fourth day on Wednesday amid mounting tension over possible last-minute attempts at fraud.

    With more than 98 per cent of the vote counted, the Democrats had secured 68 seats to 65 for the Socialists under a regional proportional electoral system being used for the first time.

    Three seats could still change hands after the last 100 ballot boxes were counted, analysts said.

    “Otherwise, we’re looking at a 70-70 split in parliament taking into consideration the likely alliances,” said Bledar Meniku of ECA, an independent US-backed election monitoring system.

    A tied outcome could result in another general election being held later this year and the postponement of key policy decisions.

    Albania had been expected to follow the example of Serbia and Romania after the election and seek a stand-by loan from the International Monetary Fund.
