House Resolution No. 96.

A resolution to declare May 31, 2015, as White Armband Day in the state of Michigan.

 

Whereas, The horror of the genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina should never be forgotten; and

 

Whereas, May 31, 2015, is commemorated as the 23rd anniversary when the Serb authorities in Prijedor, a town in north-western Bosnia and Herzegovina, ordered all non-Serbs to mark their houses with white flags or sheets and to wear a white armband if they left their houses; and

 

Whereas, As a direct result of ethnic cleansing of the Prijedor municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina, including the town of Kozarac, 53,000 of its Bosniak residents were expelled from their homes, some 3173 unarmed civilians were executed, and 31,000 civilians were interned in various Serb run concentration camps; and

 

Whereas, This anniversary, together with this year's 23rd anniversary since the beginning of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, raise awareness of the tragic suffering of the Bosnia and Herzegovina people and honors and remembers over 100,000 civilians who died as a result of the policies of ethnic cleansing and aggression in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the period of 1992-1995; and

 

Whereas, The tragic history of the genocide offers an opportunity to reflect on the responsibilities of individuals, societies, and governments, and serves as an important reminder of what can happen to civilized people when bigotry, hatred, and indifference govern; and

 

Whereas, The state of Michigan recognizes the importance of this event to bring closure for the Bosnian people through justice and truth; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 31, 2015, as White Armband Day in the state of Michigan. We remember the victims of the policies of ethnic cleansing and genocide in Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina; and be it further

 

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the representatives of the Congress of North American Bosniaks as evidence of our profound respect and esteem.

Rezolucija Predstavnickog Doma br 96.

Rezolucija da se proglasi 31. maj 2015, kao dan bijelih traka u državi Michigan.

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da se Užas genocida u Bosni i Hercegovini nikada ne smije zaboraviti; i

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da se 31. maj 2015. godine, obilježava kao 23. godišnjica od kada su srpske vlasti u Prijedoru, gradu u sjeverozapadnoj Bosni i Hercegovini, naredili da svi građani koji nisu Srbi označe svoje kuće bijelim zastavama ili čaršavima  i da nose bijelu traku ako su izlazili iz svojih kuća; i

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da je kao direktan rezultat etničkog čišćenja općine Prijedor u Bosni i Hercegovini, uključujući i grad Kozarac, 53.000 stanovnika Bošnjaka protjerano iz svojih domova, 3173 nenaoružanih civila je pogubljeno, a 31.000 civil zatvoren u koncentracionim logorima bosanskih Srba; i

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da ova godišnjica, zajedno sa 23. godišnjicom početka rata u Bosni i Hercegovini, služi ka podizanju svijesti o tragičnom stradanju u Bosni i Hercegovini i da se oda počast i prsijeti žrtava rata, 100.000 civila koji su poginuli kao rezultat politike etničkog čišćenja i agresije u Bosni i Hercegovini u periodu od 1992-1995; i

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da tragična historija genocida nudi priliku da se reflektuje na odgovornost pojedinaca, društva, i vlada, i služi kao važan podsjetnik šta se može desiti civilizovanim ljudi, kada netrpeljivosti, mržnja, i ravnodušnost prevladaju; i

 

DAJE SE NA ZNANJE, da država Michigan prepoznaje važnost ovog događaja kako bi bosanski narod kroz istinu i pravdu došao do pravednog okončanja; sada,

 

SADA I OVIM PUTEM, Predstavnički Dom države Michigan i njegovi članovi proglašavaju 31 maj 2015, kao Dan bijelih traka u državi Michigan. Pamtimo žrtve politike etničkog čišćenja i genocida u Prijedoru, Bosni i Hercegovini; i da se kopije ove rezolucije dostavljaju predstavnicima Kongresa Bošnjaka Sjeverne Amerike kao dokaz naše dubokog uvažavanja i poštovanja.
