Q: Why did I receive this mail?
A: Because your e-mail address is displayed on the list of media, student
and Non Governmental  organizations, as well as on lists of some
influential people, who have shown some interest for the conflict in Kosovo
recently.

Q: Who are you?
A: We are a group of young prodemocratily oriented people (students mostly)
who have spent the best years of their lives trying to change some things
in Serbia, to create a more democratic society were people would be able to
have freedom of speech without being afraid of getting arrested, beaten,
tortured, etc. In the last ten years of bloodshed on Balkan, we've
condemned and protested against any form of violence, ethnical cleansing
and crimes against humanity, no matter which side is responsible for it. We
were under constant repression and were brutally molested by the regime
during the Student Protest 96/97. Although we failed in trying to change
the Milosevic`s regime (which did not happen because the West did not help
us in time), we achieved a lot. Many people in Serbia opened their eyes and
started using their heads instead of being hypnotized by propaganda. We are
aware of the fact that our attitude - against NATO intervention and
Milosevic's regime as well - is not popular among the sides taking part in
this conflict, but that is exactly why we think our side is the right one
and therefore it is the only one that can contribute to the stopping of
bloodshed.

Q: What do you want?
A: Our aim is to offer you an independent view of all the aspects of this
crisis, at the peak of the propaganda of the media on both sides. Since the
true victims of this conflict are innocent civilians (regardless of
nationality), and all the aspects of the crisis (because of which this NATO
intervention started (the humanitarian aspect, the diplomatic one, and that
of democracy)), are getting worse terribly every day, we want the conflict
and bombing to stop NOW, and the finding of a peaceful solution to start.
We think the possibilities for a political solution are numerous and it is
still not too late  to reach them.
