MHRMI Condemns the European Parliament's Resolution Claiming that Macedonians are "Bulgarian"

February 17, 2017

Euro Parliament Is the European Parliament ignorant or anti-Macedonian? These are the only two options. In a blatant display of sheer lunacy, the European Parliament passed a resolution calling on Albania to protect the rights of its Bulgarian minority in Macedonian-inhabited areas of Albania and recommends that the rights of people with Bulgarian ethnicity in the Prespa, Golo Brdo and Gora regions be enshrined in law and ensured in practice. The sentiment would have been lovely, if they identified the proper ethnicity of the people.

The European Parliament, in its infinite wisdom, has just aided Bulgaria in its mission to eradicate the existence of a Macedonian ethnicity and in its misappropriation of everything Macedonian. Further, the European Union continues its policy of aiding Greece by playing along with the artificially-created name dispute and by referring to Macedonia as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia at Greeces behest.

To even have to respond to such an arrogant and racist statement that claims one ethnic group on behalf of a country that seeks to destroy it just proves the worthlessness of such European institutions. Lets be clear the population in these regions is Macedonian, a fact accepted by all, including the countless human rights reports by these very same European institutions, the European Court of Human Rights, European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance, United Nations, US State Department, and international human rights organizations. Better yet, the European Parliamentarians who voted in favour of this absurd resolution should go and visit Mala Prespa and Golo Brdo and see the Macedonian flags flying there and talk to the local population, which has already
condemned this resolution.

The European Union and European Parliament continue to aid its member-states, Greece and Bulgaria, in their blatantly anti-Macedonian foreign policies. So which is it ignorance or an anti-Macedonian policy? It appears to be the latter. And were waiting for an answer in addition to the immediate retraction of this bizarre resolution.
