MHRMI and AMHRC Increase Funding for Macedonian Human Rights Projects in Albania

Macedonian classes Macedonian Human Rights Movement International and the Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee are pleased to announce that we have, once again, increased funding for the MHRMI/AMHRC sponsored Macedonian-language schools throughout Albania and the Macedonian-language TV station in Korca, Albania. The Albanian government denies the Macedonian minority access to the media and has issued death threats to the Macedonian teachers and students who attend our private language schools. Despite this, Macedonians are not intimidated and demand has grown tremendously.

George Atanasoski, longtime supporter of Macedonian human rights initiatives and president of the Macedonian Alliance said, "I have worked with MHRMI and AMHRC on funding crucial human rights projects for oppressed Macedonians in Albania, Bulgaria and Greece for over two decades. I'm calling on Macedonians throughout the world to join the Dollar a Day Fund today and lend their support. Many Macedonian individuals, businesses and organizations have already stepped up and are contributing a dollar a day, $10/day, and even greater than $100/day. Our time is now. Support Macedonian human rights."

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