SERBIA AND THE WEST: FRIENDS OR FOES?

Talk by Dr Marcus Papadopoulos

Time: 11.30am

Venue: Fulham Library, 598 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 5NX

Tickets: £10 (refreshments included) 

 

Whilst there are no golden ages, it is abundantly clear that the world today is in a very unhealthy state. From Eastern Europe to North Africa to the Middle East, countries, in recent years, have been severely destabilised, resulting in carnage and the destruction of hundreds of thousands of lives.

And at the heart of that destabilisation is American and British foreign policy.

But how have we arrived at this situation in the world today? And what are the roots of America and Britain’s ‘humanitarian intervention’?

Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos will give us the insight on the position of Serbia in the eyes of the West and its foreign policies which brought enormous devastation to the Balkans!

 

Dr Marcus Papadopoulos is the publisher and editor of Politics First magazine, which is a non-partisan publication for the UK Houses of Parliament and the UK government. He is also a regular television and radio commentator specialising in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Union and the former Yugoslavia.

Rezultati Konkursa 2015 Results Competition 2015

Konkurs Poezija -Proza 2015         

U ime Srpske biblioteke u Londonu, zahvaljujemo se svim učesnicima konkursa Poezija-Proza 2015. Hvala takođe žiriju na uspešno obavljenom poslu.

Ove godine žiri je imao težak izbor te je jednoglasno odlučeno da se jednako pohvale određeni tekstovi i da se oni preporuče za izdavanje. Žiri je takođe naglasio da je automatski odbijeno mnogo radova zbog nepoštovanja pravila konkursa (tekst pisan rukom, tekst na poleđini stranice, jednoredni tekst, itd). To je učinjeno s nadom da će se narednih godina ta pravila poštovati i verno pratiti.

Competition Poetry – Prose 2015

On behalf of the Serbian Library in London we wish to thank all participants in the Competition Poetry – Prose 2015. We also wish to thank the judges of the Competition on their successfully finished work.

The judges had a very difficult task to make their choice this year, so they decided anonymously to commend the following work for publishing. The judges also pointed out that many works, which did not complied with the rules (text written by hand, text written on the back of the same page, single row text, etc.) were automatically rejected. This has been done with the hope that in the next years rules will be followed to the dot.

Prose in English:

The Classroom (ĆĆ) = Slađana Subotić, UK

Proza na srpskom:

Ljudi koji ne postoje (Stranac po rođenju) = Milica Miletić, UK

Poezija na srpskom:

Makedonska, 5.45 (Public Image) = Nikola Čobić, UK

 Kiša iz čaše (Voda 1b) = Aleksandar Miločević, Švedska

 Točak istorije (Fandango) = Tatjana Manojlović, Portugalija

Bolje je da si za čergom krenuo (docikaijocika) = Bojana Radovanovic, USA

Cestitamo izabranim autorima

Congratulations to the selected authors

Flyer3 LAFA

International and Serbian Pop and rock evergreen covers Own songs

3Lafa means, in Serbian, “three guys”, or “three cool cats” in American slang. We are three men from Belgrade, Serbia that have – in one way or another, lived with pop music for the past 50 years.

Vlada Marković was in a star duet “Vlada & Bajka” with a friend, in the 70’s. They were the Yugoslav version of Simon and Garfunkel, playing, recording, selling thousands of records and concert tickets, performing cover versions of “Sounds of Silence”, “The Boxer” as well as many very successful own numbers (“Oblak”, “Beograd”…). Currently, he runs and conducts the Belgrade Chamber Choir. Vlada sings and plays guitar, keyboards and flute. 3Lafa perform many of his famous, original hits.

Nenad Janjić has – since always – entertained dozens and hundreds at parties and weddings, appeared in bars and concerts, with his numerous CDd’s singing covers of popular and folk music from the region, Russia and the world. Sings and plays guitar, keyboards and accordion. 3Lafa perform his adaptations of some less known Russian popular, folk and gypsy songs.

Pedja Ristić composed and recorded already in the 70s (“Goro moja”) and has been a private party entertainer, with an international repertoire, ever since. Recently he started composing and recording again and 3Lafa perform a few of his original songs, some from 4 decades and others 4 months ago.

3Lafa sing covers of hits by Simon&Garfunkel, S’vremenaNaVreme, Mamas&Papas, Vlada&Bajka, TheBeatles, Don McLean, NoviFosili, Sting, ArsenDedíc, LeonardCohen, Ljube as well as own songs and many others.

3Lafa perform on acoustic 6- and 12-string guitars, accordion, flute and diverse percussion, in Serbian, English, Russian, Latin and other languages and always manage to get their audiences – young or old – to sing and dance along.
