Hamilton Bosnian Community

February 19, 2017.

Dear Maria Pearson,

The 28th of February and the 1st of March mark the special days for
the Bosnian people who live in Hamilton.
The 28th of February and the 1st of March, 1992. is a groundbreaking
historical moment for contemporary Bosnia and Herzegovina as it
confirms Bosnian statehood – including its legal, political and social
endurance and elevation. This is a historical fact that has been
proven scientifically and socially. The fact of Bosnian independence
has been politically established. The referendum confirmed Bosnian
statehood, independence and self-determination, as expressed by the
majority of the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The historical
fact is that on that day, Bosnia and Herzegovina became a member of
the international community, as the internationally recognized 177th
member of the UN. This is an undeniable truth with which those aligned
with anti-Bosnian politics must reckon with, because this legal
reality is indisputable.

On behalf of the Bosnian community in Hamilton, would it be possible
to place an electronic sign in front of city hall to write following:

Happy March 1st
Independence Day of Bosnia and Herzegovina

If possible, could this be done on February 28th? The day to rupture
marking our national holiday.
Finally, I kindly ask if someone would take a picture of the placed
text and send it to me by email, as this would be a great honour for
the Hamilton Bosnian community.

Once again thank you for everything you do for the Bosnian community
in Hamilton.

Please see attachment.

Thank you very much.
Sincerely yours

Professor Emir Ramic
President of the Congress of North American Bosniaks, Branch of Hamilton
