MHRMI and AMHRC Increase Funding for Macedonian Newspapers in Bulgaria and Greece

Macedonians Macedonian Human Rights Movement International and the Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee are pleased to announce that we have increased funding for the Macedonian minority newspapers, Narodna Volja, in Pirin Macedonia and Nova Zora in Aegean Macedonia, along with the publication and distribution of historic and current Macedonian publications. Bulgaria and Greece, to this day, continue their policies of suppressing any expression of Macedonian identity. With this step, MHRMI and AMHRC are ensuring that our true history will be reflected and that Macedonian culture and written traditions will endure throughout the regions in which Macedonians live.

"Without the help of MHRMI and AMHRC, the Macedonian minorities in the Balkans would have no access to publications in our mother tongue. We call on Macedonians worldwide to support these invaluable organizations and truly make a difference for Macedonian human rights", said Stojko Stojkov, co-president of OMO Ilinden - PIRIN.

Our time is now. Get involved. Volunteer. Donate. Join the
MHRMI Dollar a Day Fund or the AMHRC Macedonian Minorities Support Fund today.
