Honey, I’m home!!!
I’m back from Serbia, where I was working on a story about Serbian fanatics, with emphasize on paramilitary force of Garda sv. Lazara. I’m not going to write about that, because it’ll be published on 8th of December in Io Donna, a Saturday supplement of Corriere della Serra and about the same time in Mladina. We were spending three days with Hadzi Andrej Milić, a chief of Garda sv. Lazara. He is very notorious and speaks about a new genocide on Kosovo in the name of GOD. I could tell you that he’s really incompetent populist that realized that if he will speak how they will kill all Albanians in Kosovo, he’ll receive a lot of media attention.
First time in my life I was really proud to be an atheist, immune to all the religious = political crap that is build around faith in God. I saw so many people convinced they have a call to kill in the name of God and the most shocking thing is that this are all ordinary man, loving fathers of many children, blood-donors, but when they speak about a war they speak as an inevitable fact and their chance to get in the history, of sons that sacrificed lifes for their country, for their God.
The best was working with Marzio Mian, a highly experienced journalist who covered conflict in former Yugoslavia, from Sarajevo under siege, Nato bombardment of Yugoslavia, Exodus in Kosovo, Afganistan, Darfur, Argentina,…
Later I’ll upload more images.
PS: Bigger picture is a portrait of an old war veteran from Kragujevac, who is selling Chetnik‘s symbols.
