Kosova Task Force, USA
Action Alert
4.11.99


While we have all witnessed hundreds of thousands of refugees pouring out
of Kosova, there are still an alarming number of Kosovars stranded in the
mountains unable to escape to safety. 

50 cities and towns in Kosova have been leveled to the ground, forcing the
citizens to flee into the mountains to escape the murdering Serb army. 
They are attempting to survive without any food or shelter in frigid
climate, absolutely uncertain of their fate. 

As yet the NATO Alliance has not agreed to send in ground troops to combat
the Serb army nor to provide safe escort to civilian victims stranded in
the mountains. 

Kosova's internal situation will undoubtedly result in the death of
thousands unless those people stranded in mountains have some means of
being sustained until they can be saved or are given means to save
themselves. 

On Monday, call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand the following:
Immediate airdrops of food (at the very least) to genocide victims. 

With more than 70% of public opinion in favor of taking measures to help
these victims, it would be irresponsible not to continue putting pressure
on our representatives. 

The second call you make on Monday should be to call your representatives
(202-224-3121) asking them specifically: "What will you do to stop
genocide now?!" 

The Kosova Task Force has sent all Masjids in America a poster which lists
the numbers of the President, your Congresspersons, and important media
contacts . It is a blue and white poster customized for your Masjid area
to be displayed in a prominent place. If you do not see it in your Masjid,
please call us with your zip code and we will mail it to you. 

***Do you have a Kosova Room in your Masjid or the organization you are
working with? If not, contact us for details on how to get one started.***
