<nettime> mostly war

Bari - Hundreds of Kosovarian young men do arrive since over a week in Bari
to take the boat, to search their families, now in Albania. But then their
aim is to take for Kosovo and to fight with the UCK to free their land.
Yesterday a touristbus drove in from Switzerland with about 60 young
Kosovarian men. Completely in war-outfit, ironed, haircut, new hats, new
shoes. They were not allowed to speak with the press... 
The other Kosovarian Albanians, as we know the faces looking mostly sad,
with their old clothes and skinny cheeks, looked at those beautiful and
brandnew soldiers. A long silence fell when the organised and the less
organised looked at each other. And they all want to go back to Kosovo to
Today there will be another day in the port of Bari with the expectation of
hundreds of men. They arrive from Germany - also old men who worked there
since 1969 - from Switzerland, from Belgium, from the U.S. and Canada.
