ACTION ALERT: TELL EURO CUP BROADCASTERS THAT WE'RE MACEDONIAN FROM MACEDONIA
ACTION ALERT: TELL EURO CUP BROADCASTERS THAT WE'RE MACEDONIAN FROM MACEDONIA
Tell Euro Cup broadcasters and commentators that the terms "North Macedonian" and "North Macedonia" are extremely offensive. Tell them that we are Macedonian and that Our Name Is Macedonia.
The Argument of Decades: My Ethnic Group's Existence
The Argument of Decades: My Ethnic Group's Existence
In my opinion, being a Macedonian myself, the fact that my country's name and identity is even up for discussion is sickening to watch and hear. Greece shouldn’t have the right to tell another country what it should be called, and that my people “don’t exist”. No one should have the right to tell you who you are and to force a name change on you. Therefore, Greece and its government (along with their "strategic partners", the US, NATO and EU) have no right to force a name change on Macedonia.

Human Rights Violations Against Macedonians in Bulgaria Annual Report Released, MHRMI and Macedonians in Bulgaria Demand Action
"During 2020 the situation of the Macedonian minority in Bulgaria worsened because of the aggravated relations with the Republic of Macedonia, Bulgarian attempts to force Skopje to renounce the existence of the Macedonian minority in Bulgaria and the media campaign conducted in Bulgaria in that regard. The registration of one of two registered Macedonian organizations was rescinded in 2019 while the other one is in the process of being deregistered and its members are subjected to harassment by the authorities." - Excerpt from the annual report. Full report below.

MHRMI Condemns Greece's Deregistration of Macedonian Cultural Group
MHRMI Condemns Greece's Deregistration of Macedonian Cultural Group
One day after approving the registration of the Krste Misirkov Organization, Greece abruptly reversed its decision and cancelled it, citing “problems with the legal representative of the NPO and his repeated issues with the Greek justice system”. The person they are referring to is Father Nikodim Tsarknias, who only has problems with the Greek justice system because they have made it illegal to declare oneself as Macedonian and to seek human and minority rights for Macedonians.

The American Political Civil War is Destroying Macedonia
The American Political Civil War is Destroying Macedonia
My country is Macedonia. And Macedonians are being told (and I'm hearing it directly from the horse's mouth) that US foreign interventionism is “justified” because other countries might intervene. Yes, that's the argument. A pre-emptive strike against another people's basic human rights in order to satisfy US foreign policy. How about denouncing all foreign interventionism – and refusing to engage in it – instead of trying to justify your own.

Macedonian Human Rights Movement International President, Bill Nicholov, met with Annie Lagueux, Director of Policy for Foreign Minister Marc Garneau, and called for Canada to immediately reverse its ill-advised support of the forced name change of the Republic of Macedonia and to condemn the Zoran Zaev regime for its continued abuse of Macedonians' human rights.
Bulgaria's Totalitarianism, the EU's Hypocrisy
Bulgaria's Totalitarianism, the EU's Hypocrisy
In reality, human rights and in particular minority rights, have been relegated to the bottom of the list of priorities for European integration. Let me illustrate with a sad and true story. Eight decades ago, fearful of losing part of its territory, communist Bulgaria determined that the only solution was to assimilate its minorities into a “unified socialistic Bulgarian nation.” This was done through a series of so-called “revival processes”, targeting – in different periods – all traditional minorities settled in Bulgaria, such as Turks, Roma, Pomaks, Macedonians, etc.
