Dear comrades, In the last couple of years the first ever Albanian anarchist circle in Kosovo
has been formed. It is an anarchist library project. The participants ask for
any kind of anarchist printed and other material in any language but preferably
in English and the South-Slavonic languages such as Bulgarian.
Since forming, they have sent letters to many anarchist groups and anarchist
book and magazine publishers asking for things. Most, though, said they have
their own financial problems and are unable to send free material to our
Albanian comrades. The only printed material they have so far received is from
the Federation of Anarchists of Western Greece (OADE) and from Melbourne,
Australia, but the comrades are really keen to keep the project going.

Our comrades there also face mass unemployment and therefore tremendous
financial problems so that they cannot even afford stamps to send letters. The
jobs they manage to find pay really shit wages, so the money they earn is spent
on essential items like food. They also have no access to the internet.

Some of them have health problems as well, due to exposure to bombs from NATO
and other western forces in the Kosovo area in the recent war and to depleted
uranium, which has already started to create mass illnesses (e.g. babies born
without eyes etc). One of our comrades has been diagnosed with cancer recently,
but he says he will keep up the struggle.

Because of these terrible problems, our comrades have an agreement with a Swiss
humanitarian organisation which conducts regular convoys with food and other
aid to the area. This organisation receives on their behalf letters and other
articles from the international anarchist movement.

We call for direct international anarchist solidarity with the Albanian
comrades. You can send magazines, newspapers, leaflets, books, pamphlets, audio
stuff (in any language, but preferably in English, Bulgarian, Serbian and
related languages as mentioned above), or money, stationery, international
reply coupons or anything else you think will be useful to them. We call
especially for anarchist book, magazine and other publishers to contribute, as
well as the anarchist movement of all Balkan and neighbouring countries
(Croatia, Serbia-Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Greece) to help them. Our
solidarity is essential and revolutionary since we will help a new anarchist
movement to emerge.

You can send your contributions to their Swiss address:

RLP c/o P.F. 256, Ch 4142, Munchenstein - 2, Switzerland.

Alternatively, you can send your contribution to our addresses (or inform us if
you have sent something to the Swiss address):

MACG, P.O. BOX 2120, Lygon Street North, East Brunswick, Victoria 3057,

OADE, P.O. BOX 1333, Central Post Office, Patras 26001, Greece
