Albanian Issues Caucus

By David Edenden

This is an impressive list of 25 American politicians, including Bill Clinton and Madeline Albright that have agreed to join "The Albanian Issues Caucus". these people have been doing their homework. Some of these guys and gals are also members of the "Greek Issues Caucus". I wonder how they will juggle their fund raising appeals when they have to deal with Greek rights in Albania or Albanian rights in Greece. I'm sure they will find a way.


Welcome to Frosina.org :: An Albanian Immigrant and Cultural Resource

The Albanian Issues Caucus promotes six primary goals: 1. The peaceful evolution of democratic institutions in Albania, Kosova, FYR Macedonia, and other areas in the Balkans with Albanian populations; 2. Alleviation of human suffering in Albania, Kosova, FYR Macedonia, and other areas of the Balkans with ethnic Albanian populations; 3. Expansion of cultural exchange between Albania, Kosova, FYR Macedonia, and other ethnic Albanian populated regions; 4. Respect for human rights, including the rights of minority groups in Kosova, Albania, FYR Macedonia, and other ethnic Albanian populated regions; 5. Establishment of free market economies throughout the Balkans; and 6. Promote contact between Albanian Americans and their ancestral homelands in the Balkans, the U.S. government, and other ethnic communities.
