The Macedonian Association Ilinden Tirana and the Ilinden newspaper, as representatives of the Macedonians in Albania, stand in solidarity with the numerous protests from the Macedonian population of Golo Brdo. We also consider it necessary to present the message of the Macedonians in Golo Brdo to the international public - the message that reflects the Macedonian sentiment of the Macedonians in Golo Brdo, who are now asked to adopt a Bulgarian identity. Macedonians in the Republic of Albania have always been Macedonians and will never become Bulgarians!
The opposition coalition submitted the no-confidence motion, with 61 signatures, on November 8, 2021. The Zaev regime quickly moved to target MPs in the opposition and ultimately abducted Rexhepi, who was prevented from appearing in the November 11 parliamentary session. He was unable to be located or reached, resulting in a frantic search, and amid calls to police and condemnation of the Zaev regime by Besa, VMRO-DPMNE, Levica and other parties in the opposition coalition. A cryptic message was later posted on Rexhepi's Facebook page, followed by a scripted video posted several hours later - all fueling concern for his well-being.
International human rights treaties, examined below, dictate that signatories must immediately defend Macedonia and Macedonians - specifically against the brutal crackdown on human rights committed by the Zaev regime, the exponential rise in hate crimes against Macedonians throughout the Balkans, and the instigator of these human rights violations - the shocking Western-supported/initiated forced Macedonia name change.
The European Free Alliance (EFA) continued its strong support of human rights for Macedonians by issuing the declaration below, adopted at its General Assembly of October 14-16, 2021 in Brussels. EFA exposes Bulgaria and Greece for its systematic discrimination against Macedonians and highlights the European Union's own protocols which mandate it to take immediate action to end these human rights abuses.
Much like so many US presidents before him, Joe Biden has an uncanny ability to say something with a straight face – that the rest of the world finds tragically laughable. And just like his predecessors, the punchline – once again – is how the United States is “leading the global fight for human rights”...while stripping it from as much of the world (and his own people) as possible.
Go to our ACTION ALERT and instantly send an email to Canadian political leaders and election candidates. Tell them that they will lose the Macedonian-Canadian vote unless they denounce the forced name change FIRST.
Forget “Je me souviens”, the saying on Quebec licence plates that means “I remember” (and will never forget our history, traditions and identity). Canadian politicians are imposing the slogan “J’oublie” (literally “I forget”) on a distinct group of Canadians. And they’re doing everything in their power to ensure that this group is not able to use their own name, express their identity, or commemorate their history. Which group is it? First, imagine it was you.
“That’s how the government of Canada recognizes you.”
Not as who we are, but who we’re told to be — based on political decisions aimed at appeasing those who want us eradicated.
The quote is from Liberal Party MP Rob Oliphant, who said it to a group of Macedonians after they objected to him using the highly derogatory terms “North Macedonian” and “North Macedonia” while giving a speech at a Macedonian event in Toronto.
It has come to this. Politicians telling us who we are so they can execute Canada’s American foreign policy while simultaneously appeasing our oppressors so [insert Canadian political party here] can get their votes.
