If somebody told you that an entire ethnic group's name and identity was being changed to appease its oppressors, you would react in outrage. If they followed up by saying, "Oh wait, it's a diplomatic dispute", would your response be "That's okay then. They should resolve this dispute by denying their own existence"? This is what's happening to Macedonia and Macedonians.
Sputnik International article with quotes by MHRMI Twenty-one year old Nikola Sazdovski, an ethnic Macedonian who was attacked by a group of Albanians in Macedonia's capital Skopje ten days ago, died earlier on Monday after being in a coma for almost a week and amid raised tensions in the country, a source close to the deceased who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution told Sputnik.
Great concerns with the so called "Prespa agreement” between Greece and the Republic of Macedonia. The fact that the Republic of Macedonia might from now on have a more positive prospect towards the normalization of its relationship with Greece, and a brighter future regarding the accession process of the Republic in the EU and NATO, is very positively regarded by the European Free Alliance.
(by Vele Tosevski, MHRMI Director of Community Outreach, AMSUT President) My people, they are dividing you. With their policies, their empty promises and their personal interests, they make you quarrel and fight each other so that they can succeed in the end - to make Macedonia an anti-democratic country, unconstitutional and without rights.
(by Bill Pavlovski) Today, a group of fake, Western puppet politicians, who have already become the most despicable villains in Macedonian history, met on the shores of Small Lake Prespa, in a remote corner of the part of Macedonia that Greece annexed in 1913, hiding like cowards, far away from the outraged citizens.
Not only is Western coverage factually incorrect, it is blatantly racist as the potential change to a country's name and its people's ethnic identity, origin, language and history - all in the name of appeasing its oppressors - cannot be "celebrated". It violates every human rights convention that the West claims to uphold.
