Bombing is not a solution
The NATO bombing of Yugoslavia has worsened the humanitarian disaster in the Balkans, provoked further atrocities and greatly increased regional instability.
Join the candlelit vigil, Thursday, 15 April
Every day from 30 March to 9 Aprilwhile the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia and surrounding countries continues, go along at anytime between 12 noon and 1pm to the US embassy and light a candle to remember all the victims of war in Yugoslavia. There will be someone there from the community of people of Yugoslavian descent living in Wellington during this time each day, they wish only to have quiet, peaceful protest - so please respect that if you go.
From time to time, probably Wednesday and Friday this week, there will be a gathering for a peaceful vigil - as soon as the times for these are confirmed we will leave a message on our voicemail, tel PMA (04) 382 8129 to get these details.
