Tomorrow, July 11 2010, is a sad anniversary. 15 years have past since the Srebrenica massacre, the slaughter of Bosnian Muslims by the Serbian-Bosnian army of the Srpska Republic.
There are images that time cannot remove, that impress the soul, that change people.
July 1995, the troops of the Serbian-Bosnian commander Mladić enter the city of Srebrenica with one aim: exterminate the city's Bosnian Muslim community. Exterminate it to impose a violent political and military dominance, with no respect for the rights, the culture, and the dignity of a people. Thousands of innocent civilians perished, under the inhuman cruelty of the Serbian-bosnian troops.
Natasa, founder of Humanitarian Law Center, the organization that brought to light the tortures and abuse perpetrated during the war in the ex Yugoslavia, remembers: “When the war started in 1991, many of my friends decided to leave the country. I understood their choice, but I felt I had to stay and fight the policies of war itself.”
The Robert F. Kennedy Foundation of Europe and the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights fight to defend human rights every day, so the world will see no more such tragedies, inspired by shere brutality and the exasperated quest for power.
Never more another Srebrenica, never more.
