Despite today’s mass protest in Belgrade…The very progressive students and youth who led the protest from the small area of Kosovo of Mitrovica where they live are now in great danger.
The following BBC report tells what happened yesterday:

Nato troops have sealed the northern borders of Kosovo after Serbs angry at its weekend declaration of independence ransacked two crossings.
Hundreds of protesters torched customs and police posts at Jarinje and Brnjak, manned by UN and Kosovo police.
Closing the borders will infuriate both Kosovo Serbs and Serbia’s government, says the BBC’s Nick Thorpe in Kosovo.
The move cuts Kosovo’s mainly Serb north off from Serbia, the country to which they insist they still belong.

The same BBC News source tells that today a massive demonstration is being held in Belgrade this very minute:

Organisers are hoping the rally will be peaceful, following riots in the capital on Sunday and attacks by Kosovo Serbs on two border posts.
But on Serbia’s border with Kosovo, Serb army reservists attacked Kosovan police with stones and burned tyres.
The Serbs waved large tricolour Serbian flags and chanted “Kosovo is Serbia”.
The police were backed by Czech troops from the Nato-led peacekeeping force, who put a steel barrier across the road leading into Kosovo.
There were reports of thick black smoke billowing from the crossing point at Merdare, 50km (30 miles) north-east of the capital Pristina.
Most Serbs bitterly oppose losing the province, which they consider their religious and cultural heartland.
Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica called the new country a “false state”, and Russia also opposed the move.
The rally is due to start at 1700 (1600 GMT) in central Belgrade.

This site, www.4international.wordpress.com, send our support to this massive demonstration of Serbs against the Albanian Jihad, against US and EU Imperialism in alliance with Islam in their attempts to destroy the Serbs as a nation.
However the leaders of the Government, Kostunica and Tadic, are the very traitors who traded Milosevic to the Hague Kangaroo Court where he was poisoned and killed by NATO.
Therefore the leaders and organizers of all of this present action by the Serbs are only seeking to let off steam and to railroad the Serb people into the arms of NATO and the EU.
Furthermore, this Serb leadership of Tadic, by preparing to enter the EU, while the EU occupies Kosovo, are setting up the Serb people and the religious leaders of the Serb people in Kosovo to be massacred. This applies very much to the youth who have been demonstrating in Kosovo.
It means that these valiant youth are now entirely cut off by NATO from the support of Serbia. They are in a small pocket and are very vulnerable to the KLA Fascists who are backed by the US and EU. Moreover not only are they in danger from the Albanian Fascists, from NATO and from the EU police, they are also in danger from their own traitors in the Serb Government and its police state machine, the very same that dragged Milosevic in handcuffs and sent him to the Hague, which poisoned him.
This is really the logic and is the result of the political program of the traitorous Tadic and Kostunica Government which is following a path to bring them all into the EU. This is so patently hopeless because the EU is the organization which is policing the new arrangement.
The Serbs, Romany and very small number of Jews left are now in a hopeless position thanks to the planning of NATO plus the EU along with the KLA Fascists. But added to the problem is the traitorous nature of Tadic and Kostunica.
Just like the Olmert and Livni traitors in Israel it is Tadic and Kostunica which is really the biggest problem of all. Youth and workers who want to fight fascism can see clearly enough who the enemy is. But it is the enemy in the Serbian ranks which is the most debilitating.
The programme of Tadic and Kostunica is to place their trust in Imperialism. They became the puppets of Imperialism when they betrayed Milosevic to the Hague Court and the fate of Milosevic could be no more drastic, eventually to be poisoned by NATO.
They are Serbs and so they do not wish or claim they do not wish to lose Kosovo. Yet they are also traitors and they cannot escape their past.
Actually one of the big issues at the centre of these huge developments remains the Hague Court, and the fate of all those prisoners being held there, and especially the fate of Radical Party leader Seselj. The whole point is that Tadic and Kostunica agree with the Hague Court and they agree with the jailing of Seselj.
There is no doubt the courage and energy of the Serb youth in their small area in Kosovo.
Students in the Serb-dominated town of Mitrovica are organising daily protests at 12.44 pm, referring to UN Security Council resolution 1244 under which Serbia insists it still has sovereignty of Kosovo under international law.
Revolutionary leadership is needed. The Serb people can take not a single step forward without turning to the building of a new and a revolutionary leadership, which is opposed to the Stalinism of Tito, and is opposed to the traitorous present Serb Government.
