Press Release
MHRMI Human Rights Night on September 29 in Toronto

Dimitri Jovanov Macedonian Human Rights Movement International is pleased to announce MHRMI Human Rights Night on September 29, 2012. We will be honouring the Editor of Nova Zora and member of Vinozhito, Dimitri Jovanov.

Vinozhito has been leading the human rights movement for Macedonians in Aegean Macedonia for over two decades. Nova Zora is a pro-Macedonian newspaper that has distributed hundreds of thousands of copies throughout Aegean Macedonia, despite constant threats and attempts to wipe out the newspaper. The struggles that Macedonian human rights activists endure and overcome on a daily basis throughout the Balkans is truly remarkable.

Macedonian Human Rights Movement International finances and organizes all Macedonian human rights activities in the Balkans. Among our many initiatives are:
•The purchase and financing of a radio station in Lerin and a TV station in Korca, Albania;
•Macedonian language classes in Aegean Macedonia and Albania, including the opening of another kindergarten in Korca;
•The funding of Nova Zora, Narodna Volja and other Macedonian newspapers and publications in Aegean Macedonia, Pirin Macedonia and Mala Prespa/Golo Brdo;
•The crucial Our Name is Macedonia campaign, which demands an immediate end to the "name negotiations";
•The operation of human rights offices for Macedonians in Bulgaria, Greece and Albania;
•Demanding recognition and support for Macedonia and Macedonian human rights in Washington, Ottawa, Brussels and throughout the world.

MHRMI Human Rights Night will take place on September 29, 2012 at St. Clement of Ohrid Macedonian Orthodox Cathedral and Banquet Centre, 76 Overlea Blvd in Toronto. Cocktails will be at 6:30pm and dinner at 7:30pm. Admission is $60/adult, $30/student and $20/child.
