Fresh Albanian Militant Grouping Located In Macedonia

A fresh, 300-strong grouping of Albanian militants has been encountered in Macedonia in the vicinity of the Yugoslav and Albanian border. The militants appear to be well armed and wear the uniform of the Kosovo Liberation Army, a faction officially disbanded two years ago. The militants have refrained from any action, but Skopje sources believe they may prove terrorists who will take up arms again in case Macedonia's parliament fails to approve constitutional amendments granting more rights to the country's Albanian community. The amendments are part of last summer's NATO-brokered peace deal with Albanian separatists. Policymakers in Skopje fear, too, that the remaining Albanian rebels in northern and western Macedonia could join the fresh militants. The country's president and cabinet have both decreed an amnesty granted to them, but the militants insist the amnesty be enshrined in a separate law.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
