  • Skopje, Macedonia | 18 August 2003 . . . A summer tableau in Respekt, an independent Prague-based weekly, portrays the fragile peace negotiated among various Macedonian factions (Premysl Rosulek, "Soccer Brings Hope to a Divided Nation" [reprint, World Press Review, November 2003]). A source of hope is football, with tens of thousands celebrating the 2-2 draw with England in fall 2002. Artim Sakiri, an Albanian, scored from a corner kick, and one analyst "believes that Sakiri has achieved more for mutual coexistence of Albanians and Macedonians with this goal than all the projects and nongovernmental organizations combined." | back to top
