Support for the “Prvi Mart” initiative

Political and social situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is worrying. Divisive policies, nationalism, selfishness and promotion of personal interests are running the country deeper into a state of constant political crises, social injustice and economic collapse. Since politicians in Bosnia and Herzegovina have neither the ability nor the desire to streamline the country in the direction of integrity, prosperity and justice, the only thing left to conscientious and responsible part of the population is, through their actions and initiatives to start taking positive trends in the state.

“Prvi Mart” is one such initiative. It offers a positive, constructive and concrete approach to the construction of the state based on the principles of integrity, unity, equality, awareness, justice and national sovereignty. “Prvi Mart” is the example of the responsibility that citizens of the state must show when its politicians fail. It leads to a unified Bosnia and Herzegovina, which guarantees the cultural, economic and social prosperity for all its citizens regardless of their ethnic or religious affiliation.

Undersigned citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina living in the U.S. and Canada unreservedly and enthusiastically support the initiative of the “Prvi Mart”, and are ready to assist in its implementation within their capabilities.
