Macedonians in Albania wholeheartedly reject the position of the Bulgarian Government, which is again spreading its unacceptableposition that the Macedonian language and minority are non-existent.
When it comes to US foreign policy, there is no left and right. It's a circle. A vicious, never-ending one, that wreaks havoc wherever it goes. A US foreign interventionist tornado, if you will.
Democrats and Republicans seem to be at odds over everything, except two crucial things that unite them. One, the American superiority complex. Two, inflicting it on the rest of the world.
Most of the world is united against Trump, for good reason. Racism, sexism, sheer stupidity.... Pick one, or any of the dozens of other reasons. But Democrats, you suffer from one of Trump's worst qualities - lack of self-awareness. You might not have his comical idiocy (you'll get closer if Joe Biden becomes President) but you're remarkably similar in many other ways.
Macedonian Human Rights Movement International has launched a new campaign – directed at politicians in the Republic of Macedonia – to pledge immediate annulment of the anti-Macedonian “Prespa Agreement”. Any politician who claims that it is “complicated” to annul an illegally-imposed law is either incompetent or complicit in the forced name, identity and history change imposed on Macedonians.
No politician, diplomat, bureaucrat or journalist I've ever asked this question has answered it. Yet they're quick to tell me to give away my ethnic identity. They try to convince me that the forced renaming of Macedonia, the redefining of what it has ever meant to be Macedonian, and the literal rewriting of Macedonian history is a “good thing because it resolves a diplomatic dispute”. What they're really telling me is that my ethnic group is lesser than theirs.
To non-Macedonians: Put yourselves in our shoes. What if your name and ethnicity were forcibly changed? Our Macedonian name, identity and history are being eradicated by the West in order to satisfy their misguided foreign policies and appease our oppressors. WE ARE ALL EQUAL. Prove that you believe that by demanding the return of Macedonia's name.

Go to mhrmi.org/act-now to instantly send an email to Canadian MPs and the media. DEMAND the resignation of MP Rob Oliphant for his use of an anti-Macedonian slur. And DEMAND the return of our name. Macedonians must be treated as equals and have our human rights defended. OUR NAME IS MACEDONIA.
Addressing the crowd at a Macedonian event in Toronto last month, Liberal Party of Canada MP Rob Oliphant referred to the Republic of Macedonia with the highly derogatory term “North Macedonia” - a term used to negate Macedonia's name, identity and history and which glorifies the recent US-led forced name change on the Republic of Macedonia.
The Macedonian Association "Ilinden" - Tirana strongly condemns the insulting behavior of Bulgarian member of the European Parliament Andrey Kovatchev, who is also Vice Chair of the European People's Party group in the Parliament, and Spas Tashev in Korca.
