Syndicate: last report from serbia


one last report..

Dear friends,
    We won! I don't have enough words to describe to you all how do we 
all feel  now in Yugoslavia! Last night, after burning parliament and  
national television celebration started. People were going around kissing
and hugging each other, you could see on every face smile or tears of
happiness. During the night small groups of most violent anti-milosevich
people went around city destroying headquarters of Milosevicis (now)
ex-party "Socialistic Party of Serbia". There were some looting reported
but those were only isolated cases. There was music in the streets, people
were dancing with "Let the Sunshine in" and other great songs.
    University is free also. There was no need for any of us to 
continue sleeping inside of it, now when there was nobody left who wanted
to take university from us. Today and in next few days we, students, will
take over all of the institutions and locals which once were student
governed and were taken from us by the state. 
    Milosevic couldn't go without spilling some blood, there is 
reported two deaths and big number of ingured people, that was last evil
thing that he did to us! He apparently fly away from Yugoslavia, it is
pity that he will not get what he deserves.
    Now we have to understand that we have another enemy to fight with. 
New president is also nationalist, strong one, with neo-liberal economical
policy. We, anarchists, will have to organise resistance to them. As I
earlier sad, we supported General Strike against Milosevich because we 
think that we will have more space for our actions, and we hope that we
will have that space now.
    What this strike showed? It showed that the idea of General Strike 
is not outdated as some people said, it showed that when people are boned 
with the same goal (taking Milosevich out of the power this time) and have 
enough solidarity they can do everything! Now it is time that we start
working on an International  Social General Strike, which will stop
capitalistic system and crush states.
    At the end I would like to apologize for my imperfect English, all 
the reports were written in the hurry so I didn't have time to check 
grammar but I hope that all of them were readable. Also I would like to
thank to everybody who sent messages of solidarity to us, it is of outmost 
importance to us to see that International Solidarity is not just a fancy
word everybody is using.
    Goodbye to you all, from a society which made one big,again only 
one, step towards freedom!

    Anarcho-syndicalist greet!

    Rata
