Have you experienced anti-Macedonian hate? Sadly, the answer is yes. All Macedonians have. But Macedonian Human Rights Movement International is taking action. Report an incident now.
The wilful promotion of hatred is illegal and an indictable offence. When it happens to other ethnic groups, it is rightfully condemned and often leads to prosecution. Macedonians demand equality.
No group should be a target of hate. Macedonians know all too well that the simple fact of being Macedonian and publicly identifying as such evokes outrage by our oppressors. Reactions include, but are not limited to: hate speech; physical violence; denial of our right to self-identify; public incitement of hatred; hate propaganda denying our ethnic origin; campaigns aimed at denying our right to our own name, identity and history; inciting and attempting to coerce others, including the media, education systems and elected officials to deny the existence of Macedonians; campaigns promoting the cultural misappropriation of the term Macedonian.
Unfortunately, Macedonians are frequently subject to hate and the denial of our ethnic identity by, not only our oppressors, but those who should be defending our rights – namely journalists, politicians and other public officials.
Join MHRMI in our demand for equality and defence of Macedonians' human rights. Report an incident now.
