OMO Ilinden - PIRIN Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) / Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC) - Press Release

Melbourne, Australia and Toronto, Canada - The Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC) and Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) wish to express their full support for the protests of OMO Ilinden - PIRIN beginning today in Strasbourg.

The protests which are being held in front of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe represent an important contribution to the long battle of OMO Ilinden - PIRIN for re-registration as a political party and for the Macedonian minority of Bulgaria in general.

As OMO Ilinden - PIRIN has indicated, the aims of the protests are to raise awareness in the European Parliament of the plight of the unrecognised Macedonian minority of Bulgaria and to oppose the proposed closing of the monitoring of the execution of the 2005 judgement of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in the case of OMO Ilinden PIRIN vs Bulgaria.

OMO Ilinden - PIRIN and indeed the AMHRC and MHRMI demand that the party be re-registered as a political party by the Bulgarian authorities and call for the immediate recognition of the Macedonian minority of Bulgaria. The party also calls upon the Council of Europe and the European Union to use all the mechanisms at their disposal to ensure that Bulgaria upholds its obligations regarding freedom of assembly and minority rights.

The AMHRC and MHRMI were pleased to lend logistical and other support to the protest and will continue to support OMO Ilinden - PIRIN in their struggle for registration and recognition.
