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.

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.

First Macedonians, Now Jews
First Macedonians, Now Jews
The man whose job was to change my people's name, erase our identity and rewrite our history is now – in a brutally ironic twist of fate – watching his people's history being changed and the human rights abuses that they suffered be whitewashed, all in the name of politics and as a direct result of his actions.
You Called Him a What?!
You Called Him a What?!
[Insert derogatory name here]. You’d be immediately, and rightfully, condemned for being racist and spreading hatred. But not if you insert the latest derogatory name for my ethnic group. Actually, you’ll be congratulated for helping to “solve a diplomatic dispute” by spreading hatred against us.   Yeah. That’s right.   I’ve heard them all. I’ve been called a ___, a ___, and a ___ (and so much more). But there’s no condemnation. There is intolerance though, towards us, for being offended and for standing up against hatred.   And it’s all because one of our oppressors managed to convince the most powerful countries in the world to side with them in their claim that our existence is a “diplomatic dispute” that needs to be “solved”.
