Events, taking place in Kosovo and Serbia, that we have witnessed in the
recent period are clearly showing lack of power of State and it's religion -
the nationalism. Argument used as an excuse for wars in Balkan region by the
bourgeoisies too often, that old medicine for an empty stomach, nationalism,
has disappeared as an empty balloon and is not capable of mobilizing the
masses any more. That is the reason why, on the streets of the biggest city
in the ex-Yugoslavian region, we saw not more than 10 thousand people,
mainly god-fearing losers, confused youth, reactionary students and drunken
football hooligans.

Recent clashes, initiated by Kosovo, and happily accepted by Serbian
bourgeoisie, had for their goal only moving of the public focus from social
questions, questions only relevant for workers and peasants; this is
precisely why it is possible to say that two ruling cliques have been
working in full cooperation. So called "national question", whatever that
unclear stale term means, decorated it's great fall to the historical dump
with fitting decoration - burnings and barbarian raging. On both, only
superficially confronted, sides. Also, there is no doubt that different
secret services have their hands in recent developing, because the fact that
with national tensions on the local level it is easier to maintain global
capitalist dictatorship. These events were used as a time out for
bourgeoisies who are finding themselves under, every day stronger, pressure
of the right-less, hungry and angry people. The continuation of social
clashes will without the doubt, on both sides, produce movement of
revolutionary workers and peasants which will be able to isolate real
enemies - bosses and politicians, and will thru revolutionary process create
different social system. Society of libertarian communism, society of
politics and democracy without political parties and politicians, society of
solidarity, equality and self-fulfillines - Anarchy. Because, utopia is not
something that can not be achieved - it is something that has not yet been

Regardless of all machinations of the ruling classes in this area - in
which special part is played by the Serbian oligarchy, manipulating with
kids and condemning attacks on mosques, attacks which were triggered because
of Serbian oligarchy's chauvinist politics - the workers understood the real
nature of recent events and didn't support war callers. Because workers
kids, who can only dream about the new shoes or tree meals a day, are much
more important that weeping over burnt symbols of medieval darkness. After
coffee without cofein, sweaters without sugar, in our home made production
this sad comedy of capitalist society is being continued. Primitive Serbian
bourgeoisie is, this time, trying to sell us concept of nationalism without
the violence. And thus taking away the essential bit of nationalist idea.
That farce should pass by us, exploited, unnoted if for it's result it
wouldn't have scarifying of the Kosovo population to Kosovo myth.

Organized criminal group, canonically unrecognized Serbian orthodox
church, organisation whose leadership is decorating and blessing gatherings
of Serbian bosses/thieves, organisation who does exist only to make
existence of government and exploitation easier, organisation which is, in
our, modern time, continuing the practice of tribe shamans and other
charlatans, confronted with the reason, along the lines of their politics of
looking at a dead animals stomachs, managed to get out of this tragedy again
with good profit. Using the suffering of people from Kosovo, that found
themselves in the middle between interests of Serbian and Kosovo
bourgeoisie, the priest got State support - and now from the money that is
looted from the workers by the State one part is going to be used for
feeding of church gang in Kosovo.

Those who were government until recently, liberal-fascist from different
parties which are respecting the cult of the eliminated criminal Zoran
Djindjic, using the tragedy that they are guilty of too, are trying to get
support from the population for their concept of transitional fascism by
betting on, to everybody except the bourgeoisie oblivious, dead hors of
nationalism. To be true we have to say that they are doing it in one, if it
is anyhow possible, more bizarre way. They are pushing forward, as "national
interest", need of fastened integration in instruments of totalitarian
capitalist dictatorship - NATO and other military superstructures. The very
same NATO who was, couple of years ago, bombarding the workers and peasants
in our region. The very same NATO whose key State - SAD - is excluded from
the list of States that are sued for the bombing during the rule of war
criminal, American spy and anti-worker manipulator Slobodan Milosevic.

Government of Serbia, understanding that right-wing concept of
centralization can only distance solution of clashes in Kosovo started
moaning for the decentralization of Kosovo. But, this time too they don't
have the power, will and interest to solve this problem to the end -
decentralization that they are talking about will for its end have only
creation of smaller national communities - again based on hierarchical,
para-State, principals. That kind of decentralization will not enable real
freedom for population in Kosovo. There is a need to go to the end with the
decentralization if we are into opening the doors of freedom. Balkan
confederation - confederation of different geographical structures - from
municipal to confederation of Balkan regions - is the only long lasting
solution for clashes and bloody Balkan history, and only that kind of
structure, based on direct-democratically governing from below, will
guaranty the future for peasants and workers of Balkan.

Radical liberals, nongovernmental organisation and para-libertarian
organizations started their pale, dumb and stupid pacifistic campaign for bo
urgeoisie peace. Peace, peace, they are screaming like crows. Peace they
say, while not understanding that the peace is only achievable by war. Class
war, which will destroy those ones who are exploiting, terrorizing and
dehumanizing whole world population. Those ones who are in power and who are
looting and tyrannizing the workers and peasants everywhere, in Serbia, and
in Kosovo, and in Albania, and in USA, and in Britain, and in France, and in
Spain, and in China, and in Cuba, and in Germany, and in Australia, and in
Nigeria, and in Brazil, and in Mexico, and in all other countries in the

There is a need for a war that will, this time for real, end all wars.
There is a need for global libertarian revolution!
