"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION AND POPULATION


Chameria lays on the most southern part of the Albanian ethnic land beginning from Qafa e Muzinës to the Preveza Bay in 150 km length and 36km width from the range of mountains of Pind in the Ionian Sea. In ancient times that was part of Epirus, which consisted of 15 000 km2 whereas Thesprotia (Chameria today) as its region is 4 200 km2. In the year, 1913 Cameria had over 60 000, half of which were Muslim & the other half-Albanian Christian Orthodox. From this year, The Greek Government followed the ethnic cleansing policy by expelling the Muslim population & neglecting the national identity to the Albanian Christian Orthodox population.
In the years 1944-1945, Greek politics culminated with the genocide towards the Muslim population by the cleansing of (expelling) over 30 000 Albanians. Today in Albania there are more than 200 000 Chams, whereas in Chameria there are nearly 300 000 and nearly 400 000 are in Turkey, The United States of America, Europe etc.

ANCIENT TIMES


The State of Epirus achieved its glory under the rule (the leadership) of Pyrrhus King of Epirhus in the years 307 -272 B.C. Pyrrhus was in good terms with Illyria after growing up in the court of King Glaukus, who helped turning back to the throne. He had a powerful political influence over Greece and Macedonia. In the year 232 B.C., the kingdom of Aiakides fell down and “The Epirus League” replaced it. It was a Republican way of government. In the year 167 B.C., it was under Roman conquest, and after the year 148 B.C., it was considered by the Roman Empire as Macedonian land. In the second (II) century A.D. Epirus was on its own, whereas in the third (III) century was created The New Epirus, which together with The Old Epirus were part of the same prefecture, that of Illyricum

MIDDLE AGES


In the beginning of the thirteenth century, Vajonetia (Chamëria today) was part of The Despotate of Epirus. Leaded by Gjon Zenebishi in the beginning of the fourteenth century, by Pjetër Losha and in the end by Gjin Bue Shpata, were fought severe battles with the anti-Albanian Serbian Thoma Prelubovic and his closest Latin and Turkish collaborators.
In the second half of the fifteenth century, Chameria often became a resistance field for the Ottoman army. Under the foreign occupation was included even the Delvina Sandjak. In the sixteenth century register, the typical Albanian names were such as Gjin, Gjon, Lekë and Pjetër; even the orthodox names had Albanian connotation.
The resistance against the occupation was stronger in the seventeenth century, whereas in the eighteenth century the religion was converted into Islam. A part of Suli and Parga’s population fled away to escape the violence. During the eighteenth century in Chamëria, the positions of the big owners of land were strengthened mostly under the leadership of Ali Pasha Tepelena. In the twenties of the nineteenth century in Albanian families in Chameria the Greek army carried out ethnic-religious offenses, which were also repeated in the years 1870-1880.

NATIONAL RENAISSANCE


The Cham issue was strongly rose in the Congress of Berlin (1878) where was asked Chameria being split up and being annexed by Greek Kingdom. Patriotic forces, without social and religious distinction, under the leadership of Prizreni’s League faced the Greek claims and those of the Great Powers. In fights to protect the entirety of Albanian land, was distinguished one of the sons of Chamëria, Abedin Dino, an outstanding politician, diplomat and erudite who made possible Chameria not to become prey of the Greek claims for 35 years.

XX CENTURY


The Albanians attempts to escape the Greek invasion continued unless the Conference of Ambassadors in London gave unfairly the region of Chamëria to Greece. Head of the Albanian Government’s delegation was Rasih Dino, who had already predicted the Cham tragedy in the 2 January 1913 memorandum addressed to the British Foreign Secretary, Edward Grey. Several Greek governments since then until now, with the cruelest methods have committed bloody massacres , have succeeded in the ethnic-religious cleansing, in prohibiting the studying of Albanian language in schools and denying every human right by grabbing the lands in any way possible and by spreading psychological terror. In the March of 1913, 72 intellectuals and Cham personalities were massacred. In the twenties, 15 000 Muslim Chams were sent to Turkey in exchange of Greeks of Anadoll. In 1940, 6 000 men from 15 to 70 years old were separated from their families and send in exile in the Aegean islands without any reason, where died over 500 people. During the period June 27, 1944 - March 13, 1945 the final ethnic-religious cleansing of the 30 000 Albanians was carried out, resulting in an unprecedented genocide during which 2 900 people killed and other 2 400 died from hunger and diseases. Head of the murderers was the collaborator general Napoleon Zervas.
In the World War II, 1 000 Cham warriors fought for the liberation, taking part in Albanian and Greek military orders, two battalions, etc. Over 70 heroes such as Ali Demi, Bido Sejko, Muharrem Murtezai, Ibrahim Halluni, Huso Vejseli etc died on the battlefield.

CULTURE


There have been outstanding personalities from Chameria such as Pyrrhus King of Epirus, Pjetër Losha, Gjin Bue Shpata, Maksim Artioti, Muhamet Kuçuku Chami, Prof.Hasan Tahsini, Abedin Dino, Elena Gjika (Dora D’Istria) Kolë Idromeno, Salih Çeka, Mehmet Zeqirjai,Spiro Çallëka, Musa Demi, Mitrush Kuteli, Bilal Xhaferi etj.

CAM CAUSE AND THE EUROPEAN INTEGRATION.
CAM CAUSE IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONVENTIONS
Ahmet MEHMETI

Greece is the only country in Europe today that openly violates the main conventions on which the new international order after World War II was founded. These monstrous violations are mostly felt by the 200 000 expatriated Albanians from their own ethnic lands in Çamëria.

Sixty years ago the darkest forces of Greek nationalism induced by the Greek government and led by the war criminals, general Zerva and
Plastira, started a massive ethnic cleansing of the Albanian Muslim population in Çamëria. The Greek Byzantine church was involved in this
criminal activity and has played an active role in it too. The ethnic cleansing in Çamëria had started since 1913 and it was accompanied by massive killings. Seventy-two intellectuals and personalities of the Albanian minority in Greece were executed in the place called Selan’s Brook. During a thirty-year period, the helpless Cam people had to submit to the so-called agrarian reform, which derived them of
their land to give it to the Greek settlers brought from Asia Minor during the 1920’s, and what is more, they were denied their mother tongue, the right to vote and life itself became unbearable. Before World War II started, the Cam people were prejudiced and deported
in the Aegean islands. Those who were called under arms were given hard labors and treated like prisoners of war. Nevertheless, during the war, the Cam people gave their own contribution with their participation in “Çamëria” and “Ali Demi” battalions. There were over 1000(one thousand) warriors, 70 of whom died, laying their own lives for the common cause side by side with the Greek liberation formations. These facts have clearly been confirmed by documents and books written by the Greeks of both political parties and the allied missions of the time. (Jani Sharra, Niko Zhangu, Mihal Miridhaqi, C.M. Woodhouse etc). But the sacrifices of this population in the liberation war were denied by the Greek authorities at the end of the war and are still being denied even today. For this reason, the Greek state still has in power the law of war, number 2636/1640 as well as similar laws such as 4506/1966/ and 1664/1998.

By the time this law was enacted, the Cam people were Greek citizens and it had nothing to do with them. This law today is held as pretext and to demonstrate to the civilized world how Greece itself violates the international conventions. Greece keeps on violating the Convention on Prevention of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity enacted on November 11, 1970. This convention was based on the resolutions of the UN General Assembly on February 13, 1946 and October 31, 1947 concerning the extradition and punishment of war criminals and the resolution 95 on December 11, 1946, which confirms the principles of the International Right recognized by the Statute of the International Military Court of Nuremberg. From the decision of that court and the resolutions of December 1966, the General Assembly has assessed as crimes against humanity the violation of economic and political rights of autochthon populations such as the martyrized Muslim population of Çamëria whose land was forcefully confiscated and the Christian population and the language and education in their mother tongue were denied. Article 1 of this convention stipulates that war crimes are “unpredictable regardless of
the date of perpetration”. Section B of article 1 provides for condemnation:” Expulsion through force of arms or invasion and inhumane actions…as well as genocide as provided in convention of 1988 on prevention and prosecution of genocide” even in cases when the above
mentioned facts do not violate the internal laws of the country where they were perpetrated”.

The provisions of this convention require that the representative authorities of the state that tolerate such acts be held responsible as
prescribed in article 2. This means that even the present day government, which procrastinates or denies these rights to Cam population is also responsible.

Article 4 of the convention obliges Greece to take legislative and other necessary actions to guarantee the provisions of Article 1 and 2 on
prosecution and condemnation of these acts. In keeping with this attitude the Greek state has not signed Protocol no.4 of European Convention on Human Rights. This deliberate action aimed at keeping Çamëria occupied as it is a strategic element of the Greek Megali

Idea. Article 1 and 3 of this protocol “no one shall be expelled, by means either of an individual or of a collective measure from the territory of the state of which he is a national ” and the second section of the same article underscores “ no one should be
deprived of the right to enter the territory of the state of which he is a national”.

On the other hand Greece as a member of the Council of Europe has ratified the European Convention of Human rights. However it continues to violate the rights of the Cam Albanians by unjustly accusing them as collaborators of nazi-fascists. Section 2 of article 6 in the Convention stipulates: “Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law.” In fact, the Cam innocence has been proved according to law by Iannina Court by verdict with protocol no. 1837 date. September 29, 1976 and sent to the Ministry of Public Order, to the Department of Criminal Offences in Athens. Time has come for Greece to make a public apology for the ethnic cleansing of 2900 individuals, for 68 villages plundered and destroyed, for battered shrines, and for the 65-year unlawful exploitation and to take all actions to guarantee the safe return of Cams in their lands in Çamëria with all the dignity deriving from the international conventions that Greece has ratified. The Albanian state, besides negotiating with the neighboring Greece, must also work with UN and other European and American organisms.

The Genoncide

During the Conference of Ambassadors in London in 1913, the southern part of the region was cut off from the motherland and annexed to the Greek state despite the fact that people of the southern Epirus were Albanians of Orthodox and the Muslim faith. While the orthodox Albanians were targets of hellenization, the muslim Albanians were either exterminated or expelled from their ancestral lands by the Greek government.

Chams who lived in Southern Epirus (Chameria or Thesprotia as it is called by the Greeks) were the victims of the first ethnic cleansing in Europe at the end of the Second World War. The Cham tragedy is one of the most painful tragedies of the European continent. Statistical yearbook of the Greek government in 1936 showed that 26.000 Chams lived in Chameria region in Greece at that time.

As a result of the 1944-1945 ethnic cleansing and genocide, 30.000 Albanian Muslims were violently expelled from the Chameria region, and sought refuge in the Republic of Albania, where they still live. Today, there are 150.000 members of this population in Albania, a figure that has grown because of the high birth rate of the population. On the other hand, current number of Cham Albanians living in Greece is estimated at around 100.000. Yet these people are deprived of every sort of minority rights like other minorities living in Greece. To cite but one example, they can speak Albanian only in their homes.

The population of Chameria has always been ethnically Albanian: - A lot of voyagers and foreign historians wrote that Chameria had been populated by Albanians. Even the Greek historian Herodotus underscored this fact in his book Historias and called Albanians of the Chameria barbarians, a term used by the ancient Greeks to distinguish non-greek people. - The census held by the Turkish Administration in 1910 established that there were 83.000 orthodox and muslim Albanians in the region. The demographic map of the British military mission sent to the British government in London indicates that on the eve of the second World War, 75% of Chameria's population was Albanian. - The pro-Greek historian Spiro Muselimi, in his book "Historical Sight Through Thesprotia", edited in Joannina on 1974, wrote that "The bishop of Thesprotia in the year 1870 translated some parts of Bible into Albanian, as the people of orthodox faith of the region did not understand any word in Greek" .

The Greek authorities, sticking to the concept of absolute denial of the existence of ethnic groups on Greek territory, have followed a well-established chauvinistic policy and, as history recorded, they committed genocide against the Albanians of muslim faith. The racial assault on Chameria's muslim Albanians began to be first applied at the end of the Second World War, in 1944-1945, when criminal bands of the notorious General Napoleon Zervas perpetrated ethnic cleansing against them.

On June 27, 1944, Greek criminal bands resorted to the worst atrocities witnessed in this region. The terror committed against this population was beyond description. It included killings, rapes, inhuman treatment, massacre of women, babies and pregnant women. More than 1400 men, women and children were killed within 24 hours in the town of Paramithy, on Tuesday, June 27, 1944, which happened to be the date of St.Bartholomeus day for the whole Chameria.

During the June 1944-March 1945 period, 1286 persons were killed in Filat, 192 people were killed in Gumenica, 626 persons were killed in Margellic and Parga. There were hundreds of other missing persons. In the same period, as a result of Greek massacres, acts of robbery and rapes against the Albanian population of Chameria; 2900 young and old men, 214 women, 96 children were massacred, 745 women were raped, 76 women abducted, 32 children, younger than 3 years were massacred, 68 villages were razed to the ground, 5800 houses and places of worship were burned down or destroyed. Furthermore, 30.000 Albanian Muslims were violently expelled from the Chameria region who took refuge in the Republic of Albania.

The Albanian government, after the war, took the Cham issue to the Peace Conference in Paris. The conference of Foreign Ministers of the Allied Powers not only recognized the very difficult circumstances the Chams were subjected to, but also demanded repatriation and recovery of their property. The International Investigation Commission of the United Nations, appointed for the verification of the tragedy on both sides of the border, concluded its report in 1946-1947, replete with facts and evidence about the massacre and painful tragedy of the Cham people.

Realities of the recent history of Chameria require the attention of the international community. Greece cannot avoid but recognize the genocide of the Cham Albanians. The civil and legal rights of those currently living in Greece, estimated around 100.000 today, must be respected by Greece. According to the official Greek stand, the muslim population of Chameria, which numbers around 150.000 and still refugees in Albania will never be allowed to return to Greece because they allegedly collaborated with the German occupiers during the Second World War. They are considered as war criminals according to the Greek laws (K.Mitsotakis, Tirana, May 1992).

This hypothesis is untrue and fabricated. To consider a whole community as criminals, many members of which died in Greece's liberation struggle in the Second World War, is a political and historical crime against Cham Albanians. In 1994, the Parliament of the Albanian Republic proclaimed 27 June 1944 as the commemoration day for the massacred Albanians of Chameria, and a monument was built up in Konispol in memory of the victims of Chameria.

After 1945, with a view to changing the demographic structure of Chameria, its colonization with Greeks, Aromens and Gypsies was begun. Greece wanted the demographic structure of the province changed because it did not trust the rest of the Albanian population who remained there, even though they were of the Orthodox confession. Greece violently put an end to every attempt to preserve the identity of the Albanian population of the Orthodox belief and Albanian was prohibited to be spoken in public. Thereby, the assimilation of orthodox Albanians gained momentum. The fate of the orthodox Albanians was not much different than that of their Muslim brothers when it came to maintaining their ethnic identity.

Cham Issue


Cham Issue is very particular for the fact that they were the only people of Europe to be removed by force during the W W II . You will have to read the daily prosecution that Albanians went through in this region since this region was invaded by Greeks.

1. Daily killings,assasinations.

2. Land reforms,to expropriate all lawfull owners with ridiculous reasons.That was done under the slogan "the land belongs to the one that works it".Many Chams had to live with their land taken away but they had the right of onwrship of the olive trees.

3. Mass graves by the Greek army.

4. The Albanian Muslims were considered second class citizens.They were not allowed to serve in the army under arms.To Albanians soldiers were given to work and open new street.

5. Sytematic,prosecution,and harassments just because they belonged to a diffrent nationalty and religion.

6. Albanian Orthodox were treated somehow diffrent and this was done to create division ,so would be easier for the Greek government to rule them. Many of Christian Orthodoxs who dared the government were brutally killed by the Goverment and called by the Greek Church as treators.The example is of Spiro Calluka in Paramithia.He did not hurt anybody,he was only an Albanian language teacher.This has only one name, GENOCIDE. Greek Governmet has to allow the lawfull owners to return to their own houses and their land ,since all other citizens have been allowed to return from the civil war in Greece.That is her obligation under the international law ,and European Uninon,Greece should not be a liability for EU.

OPPRESSION POLICIES IMPOSED ON THE ALBANIAN MINORITY BY GREECE

A. FOLLOWING THE GREEK'S CLAIMS THAT THE ALBANIANS COLLABORATED WITH THE OCCUPYING ITALIANS IN WORLD WAR II AND CIVIL WAR, THE ALBANIANS WERE BANISHED IN MASSES BOTH ALONG THE BORDER OF ALBANIA AND IN THE OTHER REGIONS OF THE COUNTRY, MASSACRED OR DRIVEN A WAY TO VARIOUS REGIONS OF GREECE.

THE GREEKS MASSACRED 3.242 CIVILIAN, PEOPLE IN WHOLE CAMERIA FROM JUNE 1944 TO MARCH 1945; 2900 OF THEM WERE OLD PEOPLE OR YOUNG MEN, 214 WOMEN AND 96 CHILDREN. IN ADDITION, 745 WOMEN WERE RAPED, 76 WOMEN ABDUCTED, 32 BABIES YOUNGER THAN 3 YEARS WERE MASSACRED, 68 VILLAGES WERE DESTROYED, 5.800 HOUSES AND SANCTUARIES, INCLUDING MOSQUES WERE BURNED DOWN AND DESTROYED AND THE HOUSES WERE PILLAGED.

B. EDES (DEMOCRATIC GREEK UNION) FORMING THE ANTI-COMMUNIST FRONT IN THE GREEK CIVIL WAR AND MOVING FIRST ON THE REPUBLICAN, THEN ON THE MONARCHIST LINE AND ITS HEAD GENERAL NAPOLEON ZERVAS, ON THE ONE HAND FOUGHT AGAINST THE COMMUNIST FORCES AND ON THE OTHER HAND CONDUCTED CLEANSING ACTS AGAINST NON-GREEK ELEMENTS, MACEDONIANS AND ALBANIANS. A PART OF THESE ATTACKS WAR DIRECTED TOWARDS THE EPIRUS REGION AND THE ALBANIANS LIVING IN CAMERIA.

GENERAL ZERVAS WARNED OUT A WIDE-SCOPE MASSACRE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING IN CAMERIA IN JUNE 1944. THE IS SUE THAT OTHER STUDIES ALSO POINT OUT IS THAT CONDUCTING ETHNIC CLEANSING HAS BECOME A STATE TRADITION IN GREECE.

C. NOWADAYS, THE CAMERIAN ALBANIANS CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR THEIR RIGHTS AS VICTIMS OF THE GENOCIDE APPLIED TO THEM BY THE GREEK. WHILE THERE WAS 99% ALBANIAN POPULATION IN THE CITIES OF THE REGION AND 100 % IN THE VILLAGES UNTIL THE CAMERIAN GENOCIDE DAYS 24 JUNE 1944, THIS POPULATION IS NOW SPREAD. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE ETHNIC IDENTITY OF THE ORTHODOX ALBANIANS IS DENIED AND ENDEAVORED TO BE SHOWN AS IF IT DOES NOT EXIST.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE 1945 EVENTS, THE GREEK ADMINISTRATORS SETTLED GREEK, ULAH AND GYPSY POPULATION HERE TO UPSET THE DEMOGRAPHIC STRUCTURE OF THE REGION AND THEY DID NOT RECOGNIZE ANY RIGHTS OF THE ALBANIANS OF ORTHODOX SECTS WHO COULD REMAIN THERE. AS A RESULT OF THIS POLICY OF ATHENS WHICH DENIES THE ALBANIAN ETHNIC IDENTITY EXCEPT FOR THE ORTHODOX IDENTITY, THE CHAMERIAN ALBANIANS ENDED UP NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEAK THEIR OWN LANGUAGE ON THEIR OWN TERRITORIES AND WERE RESTRICTED THE GOODS AND PROPERTIES OF THE CHAMERIAN ALBANIANS WHO HAD BEEN EXPELLED, FO THE NEW RESIDENTS, HAVING NOT BASED ON ANY LEGAL GROUNDS.

NOWADAYS, THE GREEK GOVERNMENT DOES NOT GIVE PERMISSION TO THE CHAMERIAN ALBANIANS TO ENTER THE COUNTRY AND CONDUCTS A POLICY OF ISOLATION AND DISCRIMINATION TOWARDS THEM. THE GREEK ADMINISTRATION HAS CHANGED ALL THE NAMES OF THE PLACES IN THE REGION INTO GREEK BY APPLYING A CULTURAL ASSIMILATION POLICY.

Ne daten 10 gusht te vitit 1943 kerkohet te arrihet nje marreveshje midis Frontit Nacionalçlirimtar shqiptar dhe EAM/ELAS-it grek. Marreveshja eshte cilesuar si "Pakti i Konispolit" (perpara Paktit te Janines i cili daton 1944). Kjo marreveshje eshte neneshkruar prej forcave greke te EAM/ELAS dhe perfaqesuesit çam te Fronit Nacionalçlirimtar Rexho Plaku.
Rexho Plaku lindi ne Konispol nga nje fis me tradita patriotike dhe atdhedashurie, me te cilat u mekua ne femijeri dhe ne rinine e tije. Mbaroi shkollen tregtare ne Itali. Me teje, u shkollua ne Stamboll dhe tre vjet ne Londer.... ...Krijoi çeten e pare nacionaliste “çameria”ne fshatin Markat, ne Jugun e vendit qe me 2 Shkurt 1940 e shumoi dhe u be i degjuar ne ato kohe te trazuara… Ne luften qe filloi, Rexho Plaku riorganizoi çeten ”çameria”,e cila neper udhet e perpjekjeve per liri, do te rritej dhe nga 30 luftetare te fillimit u bene 200 e me shume, dhe me 2 Gusht 1943, do te pagezohej Batalioni “Cameria”, ne te cilin do te hynin edhe çetat “Hoxha Tahsin” dhe “Alush Taka"
"Pakti i Konispolit" kishte nje kleçke dhe per kete nuk pati sukses, pikerisht se forcat majtiste te EAM/ELAS, insistuan qe ne çetat apo me vone Batalionin "Cameria" te hynin forcat e keshtuquajtura te minoritetit grek te cilat aderonin ne organizaten (famekeqe) "MAVI", e cila kishte qellime te tjera. Prfaqesues te organizates "MAVI" ishin elemente te erret si Vasil Shahini, Spiridhon Vllahoni, Jani Diamanti dhe te tjere. Organizata "MAVI" nuk operonte thjesht ne nje lufte kunder gjermaneve, por si qellim kryesor kishte aneksimin e Shqiperise se Jugut dhe bashkengjitjen e saj Greqise.
Dokumenti me poshte ne greqisht, lidhur ati qe u njoh si "Pakti i Konispolit", pakt ky qe nuk pati jetetgjatesi pikerisht sepse u hodh poshte (me vone) prej forcave nacionalçlirimtare shqiptare, pikerisht sepse nuk pane te udhes qe kjo organizate quajtur "MAVI" te ishte pjese perberese e LANC-it shqiptar, duke patur parasysh qellimet e verteta te saj. EAM-i dhe ELAS-i grek edhe pse insistuan ne kete pike, pakti u quajt i pavlefshem me vone. Pra, edhe EAM-i dhe ELAS-i grek (majtistet), kur ishte çeshtja per qellime shoviniste dhe pretendime territoriale, nuk kishte shume ndryshime prej forcave djathtiste te EDES-it dhe N. Zerves dhe zervisteve monarko-fashist!
