About 300 members of Southern California's Serbian community gathered in front of the Federal Building in Westwood on Saturday to warn that the rights and lives of Serbian minorities may be jeopardized in the current struggles for independence in Yugoslavia. The demonstrators had often conflicting views about whether the states of Slovenia and Croatia should be permitted to break free from the nation created from disparate peoples after World War I.

Vesna Milosevic is tortured by the questions. How do you live your life, she asks, when your loved ones are living under skies streaked with missiles at night? How do you sleep and eat? Or keep your thoughts together? How do you not feel guilty for fleeing Belgrade, Yugoslavia, a few days after the sirens started blaring and the night sky turned plum red from powerful missile explosions?

Blasko Paraklis of Alhambra received a telephone call from Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, late in the evening on March 1. It was a friend, Jovan Gardovic, with news that Gardovic's father had been killed during a wedding, an innocent victim of the most recent ethnic fighting to hit the war-torn country. Paraklis' old seminary classmate, a Serbian Orthodox priest, was wounded in the attack.

Nikola Cuk said he is tired of running because he is a Serb. When he was a youth, he and his family escaped Nazi occupiers. Five years ago, he said, he fled Croatian soldiers in his native Krajina, now part of Croatia. Now, Cuk said he wants to be with his wife and family in the Yugoslav republic of Serbia, never mind that U.S. bombs and missiles are falling there and that people are scurrying to take shelter in basements and fearing for their lives.

A U.S. immigration judge has stayed a deportation order and agreed to reconsider granting political asylum to a 24-year-old Muslim illegal immigrant from Serbia who has been held in the Immigration and Naturalization Service detention facility in San Pedro for nine months. The decision by Judge Lauren R. Mathon prompted the immigrant to cease a hunger strike of several days and express hope that he will be paroled from jail while legal deliberations in his case continue.

For the last eight months, a 24-year-old Muslim illegal immigrant from Serbia has been held in the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service detention facility in San Pedro while the legal system deliberates his fate. He dare not let his name be publicized, he says, because he fears that Serbian authorities might see it and retaliate against his family in Sandjak, near the Bosnian border.
