<nettime> Information on Air Strikes in Yugoslavia

Dear Friends,

As the situation in Yugoslavia worsens, and many of us start to question in
earnest the effectiveness of NATO air strikes, a group has been founded to
try and ensure the distribution of information relating to the situation in
Yugoslavia.  This group is called Help B92, in honor of one of Yugoslavia's
most important media entities, Radio B92.

As expected, the mainstream media in most countries has failed in providing
a balanced picture of what is happening with regards to the air strikes,
and thus referring to alternative information channels is essential at such
a time.

The Help B92 team in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, have begun to compile an
archive of news stories in text and in audio to try and ensure that
accurate and up-to-date information is available.  This resource can be
accessed at:

There is also an excellent BBC news story about the situation at:

Raising awareness for the effects of war on Yugoslavia is very important at
this time.  If you work for a media organisation, a newspaper, a radio or
television station, or have a website, you can assist very directly.  Link
to the Help B92 website; Lobby your editors to feature information such as
the news stories presented at the Help B92 website.  You can also help out
in one of the four ways outlined below.

Thank you for any assistance you can offer at this difficult time.

Best wishes

Honor Harger

B92 is the backbone of the independent news service in Yugoslavia.  Without

inhabitants of this region is endangered. A fund raising campaign is being
