Inspired by the European Parliament resolution overwhelmingly adopted by 556 to nine, with 22 abstentions, on January 15, 2009, that proclaimed the 11th of July a Day of Commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide throughout the European Union (EU); we undersigned herein, aspire that the 11th of July, in compliance with the the US Senate Resolution 134, S.888; the Genocide Accountability Act of 2007 and the US House Resolution 199, be formally recognized in the State of Illinois as a Day of Commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide. Similar resolution has been adopted in the State of Michigan (res No 420). The State of Illinois population numbers about 50,000 persons who survived the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
