Macedonians in Albania Strongly Condemn Bulgarian Deputy PM's Latest Statement
Macedonians in Albania Strongly Condemn Bulgarian Deputy PM's Latest Statement
The Macedonian Association “Ilinden” - Tirana strongly condemns the September 9 statement by Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Krasimir Karakachanov. Referring to Macedonia, Karakachanov said: ‘You changed your name and your flag, you wil also change your history”. This is his brazen announcement that Bulgaria will block the opening of EU accession talks at the first inter-governmental conference between Macedonia and the European Union, unless Macedonia meets the conditions from the anti-Macedonian treaty concluded on August 1, 2017 to revise Macedonian history in a way that will portray Macedonians as Bulgarians, the Macedonian language as a mere Bulgarian dialect and Macedonia as part of Bulgaria.
My Culture Is Being Cancelled
My Culture Is Being Cancelled
Forget cancel culture. My actual culture is being cancelled. What could this possibly mean? It means that my country’s name, identity and history have been forcibly changed — by the United States — in order to appease our oppressors. What could THIS possibly mean? It means that our two biggest oppressors...

The Democratic Party’s Words Are Better Than Trump’s. Their Actions Are Not.
A lot of Democratic Party voters don’t know what is happening in Macedonia, but the Democratic Party does — because they orchestrated it. And the Republican Party fully endorses it. Why? Because it fulfills the number one objective of US foreign policy going back over seven decades — interventionism.

MHRMI CONDEMNS NEW BULGARIAN COURT VERDICT BANNING MACEDONIAN NGO
MHRMI CONDEMNS NEW BULGARIAN COURT VERDICT BANNING MACEDONIAN NGO
Yesterday, the Bulgarian District Court in the city of Blagoevgrad (original Macedonian name, Gorna Dzumaja) decided that an NGO whose name is “Citizens' Association for the Protection of Basic Individual Human Rights” is acting against the Bulgarian Constitution and banned it. The main reason is that the NGO's aims are to protect Macedonians’ rights, however, Bulgaria denies the very existence of such an ethnicity on its soil and elsewhere.
The Surreal World: Macedonia
The Surreal World: Macedonia
Claiming that Macedonians voluntarily chose to rename our country into “North Macedonia” and ethnicity into “North Macedonians” is like saying that Indigenous groups choose to be called “Redskins”. And when Western media attack Macedonians for denouncing the forced name change, it would be akin to them attacking Indigenous groups for denouncing anti-Indigenous terms. Welcome to The Surreal World: Macedonia.

You Wouldn't Give Away Your Ethnic Identity. So Why Should Macedonians?
You Wouldn't Give Away Your Ethnic Identity. So Why Should Macedonians?
Published in Emerging Europe – Of course, all, or any, of these actions should have stopped the “dispute” dead in its tracks. NATO and the EU should have reprimanded (or better yet, expelled) Greece and Bulgaria for the blatant violation of the rights their organizations claim to uphold, but instead they chose to aid them, all in the name of increasing NATO and EU membership. The international community should be condemning all parties involved in the cultural genocide of Macedonians. The aforementioned group of politicians, journalists, etc. – which espouses the defence of human rights, democracy and the rule of law – should issue condemnation, not celebration, of hypocrisy.

Mirroring Macedonia - An American Journalist Exposes the US Government’s Media Control in Moldova
The same power centres that control the media in Macedonia also have a monopoly over information in countries like Moldova. Those familiar with the situation in Macedonia realized long ago that much of the media here are controlled by foreign structures, primarily the US government, and groups such as the George Soros network. This is done with the purpose of advancing US foreign policy interests in Macedonia. Media created or richly funded through USAID projects, the US Embassy in Skopje, various EU-funded programs, and even countries such as Qatar with its Al Jazeera network, are acting in unison and promoting policies whose goal is to rename Macedonia, redefine the meaning of the word “Macedonian” and end any thought of Macedonia acting as an independent, sovereign entity in the region.
