A call for help from Greece (fwd)

Sun May 2 18:32:40 UTC 1999

My friend Linda Manney, a linguist currently living in Greece, has asked
me forward this message to various lists. Does anyone have a functioning
address for the 'cogling' list, or has that list gone defunct? I seem to
have no current address for it.

Subject: A call for help from Greece

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
AS we enter the 40th day of the NATO-led air attacks against Yugoslavia,
may of us here in Greece are gravely concerned about the current state of
affairs:the ongoing senseless loss of life caused by NATO bombings, the
catastrophic effects on the natural environment in the entire Balkan area
brought about by NATO's repeated bombings of oil refineries and chemical
factories, the increased tensions among majority and minority populations
who reside in the neighboring countries of the Balkans, the extremely
detrimental effect of the bombing campaign on all the local economies of
the Balkan countries.

For those colleagues who share our concern and would like to become
actively involved in the anti-war movement, we would like to pass on the
web page and e-mail addresses of the International Action Center, based in
New York City.  Among other things, the International Action Center
procides a clearing house of information on organized demonstrations
against the war in Yugoslavia, both in the United States and
internationally.  The addresses are as follows:
International Action Center web page:  http://www.iacenter.org
International Action Center e-mail: iacenter at iacenter.org

For a non-mainstream American view of the war in Yugoslavia, those
interested might want to look at the following  web site for ZNET, an
electronic forum for those concerned with social change and social justice:

We urge all those able to make contributions to Doctors Without Borders.
Since the current crisis began, DWB have been working around the clock in
the Balkans, on very limited resources.
Their web page is:  http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org
Their toll-free number in the USA is: 1 - 888-392-0392
Phone and fax numbers in Los Angeles:  (310) 277-2793;  (310) 277-1667
Phone and fax numbers in NYC: (212) 679-6800;  (212)   679-7016

Please help bring peace to the Balkans.
