Demonstration, 2nd December
By Albin Kurti
Monday, 01 December 2008
On December 2nd, the day on which EULEX officially begins to
operate in Kosovo, the second demonstration against the 6 Point Plan of
Ban Ki-moon and for sovereignty is being organized by Lëvizja
VETËVENDOSJE!, Çohu, Thirrjet e Nënave, Rrjeti i Grupeve të Grave të
Kosovës, Rrjeti Rinor i Kosovës, Aksioni Qytetar FOL'08, Iniciativa për
Progres and many other organizations.
This is the statement explaining the goal of our demonstration:
Against the 6 Points, for Sovereignty
The 6 point plan of Ban Ki-moon is being implemented in Kosovo.
These 6 points put Serbia deep inside our territory. Kosovo is being
internally partitioned, and EULEX will manage this partition. With this
plan, the will of the people of Kosovo for an independent state is being
violated and the territorial integrity of Kosovo is being endangered.
This plan makes it impossible for Kosovo to function as a democratic
state and to develop economically.
The mission of EULEX will disembark in Kosovo according to the 6
Point Plan of Ban Ban Ki-moon despite Kosovo's NO. EULEX is coming to
Kosovo under Resolution 1244 and under the umbrella of UNMIK. It is
coming after receiving the approval of Serbia, neutral towards status,
and so against the independence of Kosovo. EULEX will have executive
powers over the institutions of security, rule of law and customs of
Kosovo. This mission will not submit to the law and will have immunity
from criminal punishment in Kosovo. It will not be accountable to us.
Therefore this plan and this Mission should be refused in its entirety
and without any compromise. This plan should be refused not only by
saying NO, but also by fulfilling the will of the citizens of this
country for an independent and sovereign Kosovo. As is defined in
Clauses 1.1 and 2.1 of the Constitution where it states that the
Republic of Kosovo is an independent state, united and indivisible, and
respectively that its sovereignty derives from the people.
We demand to be a normal country, a democratic country where for
serious issues the people decide through a referendum. We demand that
Kosovo be like other independent countries governed by sovereign
institutions chosen by the people, of the people and for the people. The
minorities of Kosovo are citizens of Kosovo, their rights are guaranteed
by international conventions which apply in Kosovo in their entirety. We
want political, economic and social development and progress and not
partition and continual negotiations about what Kosovo should be.
The institutions of Kosovo should not have the Ahtisaari Plan as a
political position in a time when Serbia does not recognize the
independence of Kosovo and maintains parallel structures in Kosovo. This
plan divides Kosovo on ethnic lines, and in its institutions and its
territory. The 6 points are a supplement to the plan and not in
opposition with it.
This country is ours, of all the people of Kosovo, and our
responsibility. It is absolutely unacceptable for Kosovo to take
permission from Belgrade. The state of Serbia should leave here and
never return. The proposal of Serbia incites new partitions in the
We invite all the citizens of Kosovo to join us in a demonstration
and to oppose in a peaceful manner the 6 points that threaten the
sovereignty and territorial integrity of Kosovo.
We will make our voice be heard! Tuesday, 2nd December, all in
We will defend the Republic of Kosovo as an independent,
sovereign, democratic, united and indivisible state!
Albin Kurti leads the Vetëvendosje! Movement, which opposes the
international administration of Kosovo
