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.
On behalf of the European Free Alliance and its member party OMO Ilinden-Pirin, I am writing to you concerning the Macedonian minority in Bulgaria. For many years, the Macedonian minority has been mistreated by the state, and denied basic rights guaranteed under European Union law. Registration of Macedonian organisations is frequently blocked by the Bulgarian state, and hate speech and discrimination against the minority is rife. An active dialogue between the state and representatives of the minority must be established in order to resolve problems. The rights of minorities are universal and when infringed, must be investigated and acted upon appropriately. In the name of the Macedonian minority we call on you:
The Macedonian minority continues being denied to the present day and Macedonians do not enjoy even one of the rights stipulated by the Framework Convention for the Defence of National Minorities. Macedonians are objects of systemic hate speech, treated as enemies of the nation and traitors and denied the opportunity to have their own organizations or to participate in social life as Macedonians. Our children cannot study their own language, history and culture in school, are forced to learn that they do not exist as a people and to hear in the media that their parents are illiterate, unintelligent, deluded, agents of foreign states and traitors.
