Kosova Task Force, USA
April 11, 1999

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?!"
