Saying You're Macedonian Is Not Enough
Saying You're Macedonian Is Not Enough
You need to take action. Otherwise, everything Macedonian will continue to be given away to those who want us eradicated. You'll be forever known as a "North Macedonian" from "North Macedonia" — terms specifically designed to eradicate our name, identity, culture, heritage, language, and history. Saying you're Macedonian is not enough. Simply attending Macedonian events is not enough. Complaining about the brutality of the past several years without taking action is not enough.  Macedonian Human Rights Movement International does not stand idly by. We've been leading the Macedonian cause for almost four decades, with concrete human rights projects throughout all of partitioned Macedonia and international lobbying for our name and rights. 
Foreign Minister of Regime in Macedonia Invents Excuse to Avoid Court Hearing for Defamation
Foreign Minister of Regime in Macedonia Invents Excuse to Avoid Court Hearing for Defamation
The foreign minister of the regime in Macedonia, Bujar Osmani, invented an excuse, for the third time, to avoid a court hearing against him on December 26, 2023 for violations of the Law on Civil Liability for Insult and Defamation. The first two occurrences were on May 29, 2023 and September 15, 2023. Each time Osmani claimed "unavoidable obligations", despite knowing, well in advance, of the court dates. The latter two were scheduled to be the final hearings in the lawsuit brought by Macedonian Human Rights Movement International and its president, Bill Nicholov. Osmani slandered MHRMI and Nicholov because of their activism in defending rights of Macedonians, in this case, the severely oppressed Macedonian minority in Bulgaria — a tactic frequently used by the regime and its US government backers.
Western Journalists Are Accessories to Murder
Western Journalists Are Accessories to Murder
How are Western TV news anchors able to sit at their desks, with a straight face and with no remorse, and broadcast news that enables rampant human rights violations and glorifies mass murder? Are they evil, selfish or just plain stupid? When they report news of a country carpet-bombing civilians, with almost half of the slaughtered being children, the next words that come out of the journalist's mouth cannot be that the country committing genocide "has the right to defend itself". Nobody is that stupid.

MHRMI Condemns European Commission's Hypocrisy in Issuing Country Report on the Republic of Macedonia
Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) condemns the hypocrisy by the European Commission (EC) in issuing its recent country report on the Republic of Macedonia and its "state of democracy, rule of law, and human rights". The gross human rights violations committed by the regime in Macedonia — only some of which are outlined in the report — are encouraged, enabled, directed and committed by the very organization that authored the report, and led by the United States.

Canada's Hypocrisy and Enabling of Nazism on Full Display
Published in The Hill Times, Canada’s leading newspaper for political news and analysis — But what happens when Canada enables current Nazi attacks on an ethnic group? As per Canadian foreign policy, it depends on the ethnic group, followed by Canadian politicians turning to their American bosses to determine their public reaction and, even more importantly, their continued action. For decades, Canada has declared a specific ethnic group expendable and has notoriously pursued a policy aimed at its eradication. That group is Macedonians.
