Kosova: End repressioin, for a workers a solution

06/06/1999, The recent roots of the bloody break-up of the former Yugoslavia lies in the deepening crisis it faced in the 1980s. Throughout the 1980s its economic situation worsened. By 1987 inflation was running at over 100% a year, by mid-1988 the annual rate reached 160%. Workers’ living standards were falling with the result that protests and struggles began to develop. At the same time, like in other Stalinist countries, growing sections of the ruling bureaucratic elite were looking towards capitalism, and turning themselves into capitalists, as a way out. Concretely this meant trying to secure ownership and control over the state’s assets.
CWI statement

Kosova: Oppose NATA bombings

27/03/1999, The massive NATO attack on Serbia has hugely exacerbated the crisis in the Balkans and threatens to widen the conflict further, with terrible repercussions. Already there has been Serb shelling of Albania and pro-Serb riots in Macedonia. Working class people, Kosovar Albanians, Serbs and the masses of the Balkans, will be the main victims of this imperialist war and its consequences.
Committee for a Workers’ International statement

Kosova: End repression, for a workers solution

01/01/1998, The clashes and deaths in Kosovo have put on the agenda the possibility of war breaking out in the Balkans for the fourth time this decade. Already over 100,000 have been killed in the three previous wars, with nearly a million and a half people "ethnically cleansed" and forced into exile. Before this year’s deaths 40 Albanians had been killed by Serbian security forces in 1997.
