Remembering Vukovar And The Smut Of Erdut Agreement

This is the week we remember the victims in the November 1991 fall of Croatia’s Vukovar (and all the victims of Serb aggression against Croatia), brutally attacked, destroyed, slaughtered and tortured by Serb rebel paramilitary as well as Serb-led Yugoslav Army forces. This is the week that in our mind the thoughts of forgiveness and […]

Croatian Parliament: The Detrimental Representation of Ethnic Minorities (?)

  At the time of its formation in 1990 Croatian parliament and a rather large number of NGO institutions were devised and established in such a way that Croatia’s diverse population in the ethnic sense was and remains rather well represented. There are currently eight (out of 151) seats in parliament dedicated to representing ethnic […]

Croatia: Ethnicity Must Not Determine Allegiance

Croatia: About Cyrillic In Vukovar

Croatia: Serbian Cyrillic Signs To Vukovar Are What Swastika Is To Victims Of Nazi Exterminations

As I briefly commented in my last post the Independent Democratic Serb Party/SDSS in Vukovar has issues with Vukovar’s Local Government declaration of Vukovar as a place of special piety for its suffering under brutal Serb aggression in 1991 and declaring the Croatian and Latin script as its official language. I now turn to some […]

Displacement of Croats – again?

[…]

Croatia: major warfare within Serb minority

A major warfare within the Serb minority in Croatia has gained messy and alarming proportions during the past few days pointing to corruption and shady dealings within that community. That which started as a public row and mud slinging  between Croatia’s president Ivo Josipovic and the president of the Independent Democratic Serb Party/SDSS Milorad Pupovac […]

Croatia: Josipovic’s helter-skelter politics

The palpably ever-present helter-skelter in the Croatian left-wing politics have shown their unsavoury face during the past week, again. It’s blatantly obvious that the head of the Croatian state, President Ivo Josipovic, just like his predecessor Stjepan Mesic has absolutely no visible strategy or ordered plan for the integration of Croatian Serbs into a desired […]
