2006.01.09. – The Croatian Worldwide Association, CWA – priopćenje za javnost

Dragi
Hrvati i hrvatski prijatelji,
Misija
Hrvatske svjetske udruge (The Croatian Worldwide Association, CWA)
duboko
je demokratska i patriotska: mi zelimo zastiti hrvatski nacionalni
suverenitet i
legitimitet Domovinskog rata, te podrzati domace reforme kroz koje
bi nastala
sposobna, jaka i prosperitetna, istinski demokratska Republika Hrvatska.

CWA
ima glas medju brojnim Hrvatima diljem svijeta i stranim kreatorima
vanjske
politike, koji je ustanovila na najvisim nacelima koji se suprostavljaju
kontinuiranom unistavanju hrvatske drzave i slobode tiska u Hrvatskoj;
izdaji
veterana hrvatskog Domovinskog rata, napose generala Ante Gotovine;
izdaji i
optuznicama protiv hrvatskih novinara; i duboko ukorijenjenoj korupciji
u
hrvatskim javnim uredima, i medju elitima. Uvjereni smo da je korupcija
odigrala kljucnu ulogu u izdaji generala Gotovina i CWA ce se boriti
protiv nje
svim svojim snagama.
Dok
smo mi duboko razocarani i uznemireni uhicenjem generala Gotovine,
mnoge
korupirane skupine su nasle u tome razlog za slavlje. Izlozite cemo
dva takva
primjera koji ce posluziti kao upozorenje da ne cemo tolerirati
daljnju
zlouporabu i pljacku Hrvatske na racun nevinih ljudi, a napose onih
koji su se
borili protiv Miloseviceve i srpske agresije i komunizma da bi Hrvatska
bila
slobodna demokratska zemlja. CWA ne ce suradjivati niskim tko vodi
financijsku
kampanju za Generala dok nam transparentno ne prikaze novcani tok:
1) tko je
ovlastio skupljanje novca; 2) kako su novcana sredstva utrosena.
Primjerice,
ovih dana nam je prisao montrealski Hrvat Drazen Bokor koji se inace
reklamirao kao osoba zaduzena za skupljanje novca za Generala. Prikupili
smo
informacije o njegovim aktivnostima i postavili mu vrlo jednostavna
pitanja:
(1) Tko ga je ovlastio za skupljanje novca i (2) gdje ce poslati
taj novac kad
ga prikupi?
U
zupnom vjesniku u Montrealu, Gosp. Bokor i njegovi suradnici najavili
su
sljedece "pucko veselje" (!) gdje cak nazivaju generala
Gotovinu
jednostavno "Gotovina." Slijedi tekst koji su objavili
u svojoj reklami:
"MONTREALSKI HRVATI za GOTOVINU priredjuju SVECANU GOZBU. Slavlje
hrvatskog domoljublja, 28. sijecnja 2006 u 7:30 sati navecer. BOGATA
VECERA, donesite svoje vino. PLES, PUCKO VESELJE. Cist prihod od
zabave kao i dobrovoljni
prilozi od pojedinaca i organizacija bit ce polozeni u fond Ante
Gotovine u
Hrvatskoj. Ulaznice: $30 (vecera ukljucena). Studenti i djeca $15.
Prodaja:
Drazen Bokor, etc.."
Drazen
Bokor je uporno odbio odgovoriti na pitanja tko ga je ovlastio za
prikupljanje novca za nepostojeci "fond Ante Gotovine"
u Hrvatskoj. Do
danas, "Fond Ante Gotovine" sluzbeno ne postoji.
Duznosnica
CWA u Kanadi pitala je gosp. Bokora i zasto se obracaju generalu
samo
s Gotovina i opet nismo dobili odgovor. Takodjer mu je postavljeno
pitanje
zasto nisu podrzali kontakt CWA u Montrealu na 5. kolovoza u sklopu
svjetskih
prosvjeda u potporu generala i opet nismo dobili odgovor. Zanimljivo,
kad nije
bilo skupljanja novca, i kad su planirane aktivnosti da se podigne
svijest o
situaciji Generala i optuzenih novinara, ovih takozvanih skupljaca
novca za
Gotovinu nije nigdje bilo. Montreal nije jedini slucaj gdje su prosvjedi
i prikupljanje potpisa za peticiju CWA sabotirani, nego se to dogodilo
u
brojnim drugim gradovima u svijetu da se prosvjedi obeshrabre. Barem
je Chicago
uspio izbjeci sabotazu i odrzati prosvjede kao i Hrvati u Berlinu,
Njemacka.
Gosp. Bokor je na vrlo odbojan nacin odbio odgovoriti na bilo koje
nase
pitanje.
Sljedeci
primjer: CWA-u je proslijedjen email od novoutemeljenog odbora Hrvata
iz Viktorije (Committee of Croats in Victoria www.hrvati-victorije.com)
U
njihovom emailu s nadnevkom od 5. sijecnja 2006, Katarina Brozovic-Basic,
tajnica, pise:
"Bez
obzira, glede vase zabrinutosti oko transparentnosti i uporabe novcanih
sredstava prikupljenih od prodaje razglednica, budite uvjereni da
zelimo
osigurati da se skupljanje novca obavlja na transparentan nacin
tako da Hrvati
u Victoriji i drugdje znaju gdje njihov novac ide. Odbor Hrvata
Victorije je
razvio strategiju komunikacije s hrvatskom zajednicom kroz lokalne
medije preko
novina, radija, emaila, i internet stranica. Slicno tome, razvili
mo strategiju
komunikacije s Hrvatima u Hrvatskoj i s medijima i direktno na politickoj
razini. Jednom kad obitelj Gotovine i tima obrane koji predstavlja
generala
Antu Gotovinu utvrde koji ce fond biti glavni da se nasa sredstva
u njega
prebace, mi cemo slijediti njihove upute i upoznati cijelu zajednicu
u
Victoriji i drugdje o svim koracima koje poduzmemo."
Premda
u njezinu emailu stoji kako zele "osigurati da se skupljanje
novca
obavlja na transparentan nacin", ona i njezin Odbor odbijaju
to prikazati
na njihovim stranicama. Iz popisa imena u Odboru vidi se da ga kontroliraju
clanovi HDZ-a u Australiji.
Nastavit
cemo s prokazivanjem takvih primjera koji nam dodju na znanje i
odbit
cemo svaku suradnju sa svima ciji se ciljevi pokazu necasni ili
netransparentni
te stetni za Hrvatsku i za kampanju za oslobadjanje hrvatskog Generala
Gotovine.
Mi cemo i dalje djelovati kao vodeci glas u borbi za Generala i
protiv svake
korupcije. Molimo vas nastavite pratiti razvoj dogadjaja oko takvih
pojedinaca
i skupina, i trazite njihovu punu odgovornost tako da se prikupljena
sredstva
ne zlorabe, i da se doista pomogne Generalu i Hrvatskoj.
Stoga CWA zeli nesto reci o fondu za obranu generala Gotovine. Dok
CWA ne primi
potvrdu da je otvoren sluzbeni legalni fond za obranu, CWA ne podrzava
nijednog
pojedinca ili skupinu koji koriste ime CWA za skupljanje novca.
Ako CWA dozna
za bilo kojeg pojedinca ili slupinu koji se koristi nasim imenom
bez naseg
prethodnog odobrenja i ovlastenja, bez odgadjanja ce se pokrenuti
pravni
postupak.
CWA
cini skupina osoba koji rade dragovoljno i ne zele nista drugo nego
pomoci
Hrvatskoj, medjutim ne cemo tolerirati zlouporabu imena CWA u svezi
s
neovlastenim skupovima za skupljanje novca.
CWA
takodjer zeli naglasiti da se prodaja HEROJ-majica obavljala iskljucivo
preko www.croworld.ca. Croworld je skupina kanadskih Hrvata u podrucju
Toronta
koji prodaju majice, i koje je CWA ovlastila jedino za koristenje
logo-a i
dizajna ali CWA nije primila nikakav novac od prodaje majica niti
je poslala
Croworld-u te majice. Sva pitanja glede prodaje HEROJ-majica s nasim
logom
trebaju biti upucena Croworld timu.
Dobre
vijesti:
CWA,
kao vecina drugih organizacija u svijetu, nedavno, i to samo jedanput
je
trazila sponzoriranje nasih stranica kako bismo odgovorili na goleme
zahtjeve
naseg citateljstva u svezi s kvalitetnom, operativnom i opcenito
profesionalnom
internet prezentacijom naseg rada. Sada CWA ne zeli primiti nikakve
donacije za
odrzavanje stranica jer smo nasli dragovoljce unutar organizacije
koji ce nam
pomoci da odgovorimo na zahtjeve naseg citateteljstva. U skladu
s nasim
obecanjem da cemo objaviti svaku donaciju, CWA vas izvjestava da
je gdjica
Vedrana Katic iz New Jerseya, USA, donirala $20.00 za web stranice
? hvala
jako puno! Zasada CWA ne zeli primati nikakve daljnje donacije..
Molimo
vas nastavite lobirati kod drzavnih duznosnika (vidjeti dolje ostala
priopcenja) gdje god zivite. K tomu, pisite lokalnim i medjunarodnim
medijima
jer moramo nastaviti pomagati Generalu Gotovini da se spasi od bijesa
ICTY-a i
Haaga.
Nastavit
cemo se boriti za pravdu i nikad ne smijemo odustati.
——————————————————————————-
Dear Croatians and Friends of Croatia,
The
Croatian Worldwide Association (CWA) mission is profoundly democratic
and
patriotic: we want to protect Croatia’s national sovereignty and
the legitimacy
of the Homeland War and to sponsor domestic reform in order to create
a viable,
strong and prosperous truly democratic republic.
The
CWA has established the voice among numerous Croatians and foreign
policy
makers worldwide on the highest principles that oppose the continuing
erosion
of the Croatian state and free press in Croatia; the betrayal of
Croatian
Homeland war veterans, especially General Ante Gotovina; the betrayal
and
indictments against Croatian journalists; and deeply rooted corruption
in
Croatia?s public offices and elites. We belive that the corruption
played a
major role in General Gotovina?s betrayal, and the CWA will continue
to fight
against it with all its strength.
While
we?re deeply saddened and outraged at the capture of General Gotovina,
many corrupt groups found this capture as a cause for celebration.
We will
present you with two examples which serve as a warning that we will
not
tolerate further manipulation and plundering of Croatia at the expense
of
innocent people and especially those who fought against Milosevic?s,
Serbian
aggression, and communism and for Croatia to become a free and democratic
country. The CWA will not cooperate with anyone who raises funds
for the
General unless they present us with a transparent flow of funds:
1) who
authorized the fundraising; 2) and how the funds were used.
For
example, we were recently approached by a Montreal Croatian Drazen
Bokor who
has advertised himself to be in charge of a fundraising campaign
for the
General. We obtained information on his activities and asked him
very simple
questions: (1) who authorized you to raise funds and (2) once the
funds are
raised, where will you be sending the funds?
In
Montreal?s Parish bulletin, Mr. Bokor and his associates announced
the
following ?cheering party? where they simply called General Gotovina
?Gotovina.? The following is the text of their advertisement:
?Montreal?s Croatians organize for GOTOVINA a ..svecanu glazbu,
a
celebration of Croatian patriotism on January 28, 2006 at 7:30.
Rich supper.
Bring your own wine. Dance. Cheerful party. The net gains and donations
from
individuals and organizations will be deposited in the Fund of Ante
Gotovina.
Tickets: $30. Sale: Drazen Bokor, etc…?
Drazen
Bokor continually refused to answer the questions as to who authorized
them to raise funds for a non-existent ?fund of Ante Gotovina? in
Croatia.
As of date, ?Fond Ante Gotovine? does not officially exist.
CWA?s
official in Canada asked Mr. Bokor why they refer to our General
as only
?Gotovina? and we did not receive a reply. He was also asked why
they did
not support CWA?s contact in Montreal on August 5, 2005 for worldwide
rallies
in support of the General, again, no response. Interesting, when
there was no
fundraising event, and an event was planned to promote awareness
of the
General?s and indicted journalists situation, these now so-called
?fundraisers? were nowhere. Not only did was Montreal sabotaged
to hold a
rally and gather signatures for the CWA petition, cities worldwide
were
discouraged from organizing rallies. At least, Chicago managed to
avoid the
sabotage and hold a rally as did fellow Croats in Berlin, Germany.
Mr. Bokor
repugnantly refused to answer any of our questions.
Next
example: The CWA was forwarded an email text from the newly formed
Odbor
Hrvata iz Victorije (Committee of Croats in Victoria) www.hrvati-victorije.com
In
their email dated January 5, 2006, Katarina Brozovic-Basic, Secretary,
writes:
?Nonetheless,
with regards to your concerns about transparency and use of
funds generated from the sale of the postcards, rest assured that
we too are
interested to ensure that all fundraising is done in a transparent
manner so
that Croats in Victoria and elsewhere are clear about where their
monies are
going. OHV has developed a strategy of communication with the Croatian
community through the local Croatian media via newspapers, radio,
email and
website. Similarly, we have developed a strategy of communication
with Croats
in Croatia both through the media and directly at the political
level. Once the
Gotovina family and the Legal Team representing General Ante Gotovina
have
determined which fund shall be the primary one for our funds to
be channeled
into, we shall follow their instructions and advise the whole community
in
Victoria and elsewhere of the steps we are taking.?
Although
her email states they too ?are interested to ensure that all
fundraising is done in a transparent manner?? she and the committee
fail to
mention this anywhere on their website. According to the odbor list
of names,
the list appears to be dominated by HDZ members in Australia.
We
will continue to expose all such examples that come to our attention,
and
refuse to cooperate with anyone who proves to have dishonorable
or
non-transparent objectives detrimental to Croatia and the campaign
for the
freedom of Croatian General Ante Gotovina. We work to remain the
leading voice
in fighting for the General and against all corruption. Please continue
to
follow developments around all individuals and groups and demand
full
accountability so that the funds raised will not be misused, and
the General
and Croatia are indeed supported with the dignity that the General
symbolizes.
Therefore, the CWA wishes to address the General Gotovina defense
fund. Until
the CWA receives confirmation that an official legal defense fund
has been
established, the CWA does not support any individuals and/or groups
who use the
CWA name to fundraise. Should the CWA learn of individuals and/or
groups using
our name without our express consent or knowledge, we will not hesitate
to take
appropriate legal action.
The
CWA is a group of volunteers who want nothing more than to help
Croatia,
however, we will not tolerate the CWA name to be used in coordination
with
unauthorized fundraising events.
The
CWA also stresses that the sale of HEROJ t-shirts are solely done
through
www.croworld.ca Croworld is a group of Canadian Croatians in the
Toronto area
who sell the t-shirts and while the CWA only allowed and authorized
the
CroWorld Team to use the logo and design, the CWA has not received
any money
for the sale of the t-shirts nor did the CWA provide Croworld with
actual
t-shirts. Any questions regarding the sale of the HEROJ t-shirts
with our logo
should be directed to the Croworld team.
Good
news:
The
CWA, as most other organizations in the world, recently, and only
once,
requested sponsorship of our website so as to meet the demands of
our
readership regarding the quality, functionality, and overall professionalism
of
our web presentation. Therefore, the CWA does not wish to receive
any donations
for maintaining the website since we have volunteers within the
organization who
will assist us to meet our readers? needs and maintain the website.
In
compliance with of our commitment to announce any donations, the
CWA reports
Ms. Vedrana Katic of New Jersey, USA has donated $20.00 for the
website ?
thank you very much! At this time, the CWA no longer wishes to receive
any
future donations.
Please
continue to lobby government officials (please see below) wherever
you
live. In addition, write to local and international media outlets
because we
need to continue to help free General Gotovina from the wrath of
the ICTY and
The Hague.
We
will continue to fight for justice and we must never give up!
