Newsletter: May – October 2016
In front of you, there is a new issue of YIHR newsletter where you can find everything we did from May until October, 2016.
The most important moment in this period was most definitely the Regional Youth Cooperation Office Agreement which was signed by Prime Ministers of six Western Balkans countries on July 4th in Paris.
We kept fighting against the negation of some of the most severe crimes committed during the war in the nineties in the name of the idea of Great Serbia. Young people from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Montenegro have met through different programs and discussed some heavy topics concerning the heritage of war past.
Loud and clear have we stood up against the attempt of rehabilitation of the Slobodan Milošević’s policy and the announcement of a monument in memory of him. Regarding the fifteenth anniversary of his extradition to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, we reminded the public of the devastating consequences of his policy, the war crimes he was accused of and the evidence the Prosecution presented.
We have supported and helped in organizing the Pride Parade, as the most important event for raising awareness of the difficult position LGBT people in Serbia are in.
You can read all about this and many other activities in the pages beneath.
