The same power centres that control the media in Macedonia also have a monopoly over information in countries like Moldova.
Those familiar with the situation in Macedonia realized long ago that much of the media here are controlled by foreign structures, primarily the US government, and groups such as the George Soros network. This is done with the purpose of advancing US foreign policy interests in Macedonia. Media created or richly funded through USAID projects, the US Embassy in Skopje, various EU-funded programs, and even countries such as Qatar with its Al Jazeera network, are acting in unison and promoting policies whose goal is to rename Macedonia, redefine the meaning of the word “Macedonian” and end any thought of Macedonia acting as an independent, sovereign entity in the region.
Dear Macedonians, my name is Victoria Tosevski and I'm Macedonian Human Rights Movement International's Media Liaison Director.
I'm asking for your support. Macedonia and Macedonians are facing the biggest threat to our identity – and existence as Macedonians – in modern history. Our name has been forcibly changed, our identity given away to our oppressors, and our history rewritten.
Each passing day brings a new attack on Macedonians throughout all regions of partitioned Macedonia, and throughout the world.
I am MACEDONIAN. My ancestors were NOT Greek or Bulgarian. Unfortunately, they are our oppressors. I am most definitely NOT "North Macedonian". I don’t recognize the politicians who wish to sell my name, ethnicity, language and culture which is my basic human right with the false hopes of entering the EU. The Zaev regime does NOT represent my family, my ancestors or my descendants. I don’t know what he represents except money, for his corrupt and treacherous self.
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.
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.
Defying the US/EU and the two main political parties in Macedonia (both blindly follow American orders), Macedonians continue to put up OUR NAME IS MACEDONIA signs and posters across the country condemning the illegal name change and demanding the return of Macedonia's real name. Signs with the racist, Western-imposed “North” terminology are being replaced with MACEDONIA.
Macedonian Human Rights Movement International is THE organization that funds, organizes and supports human rights projects in defence of our Macedonian name and identity. We will never back down. We stand up to US/EU brutalization of Macedonia. We condemn Western support of our oppressors in their campaigns of cultural genocide against Macedonians. We vehemently defend all parts of Macedonia and Macedonians everywhere.
The biggest target of Bulgaria's EU-enabled hate campaign against Macedonians are Macedonian human rights activists. Police officers have, again, begun to visit the homes of activists to interrogate, intimidate and threaten prosecution unless they cease their Macedonian activities. On November 12, 2019, members of the Macedonian Civil Association for the Protection of Fundamental Rights were confronted in their own homes by police and investigators interrogating them about their activities and announcing the initiation of a procedure to rescind the organization's registration – for the sole reason that "Macedonians don't exist".
Watch the following video of the annual Macedonian Ilinden festival in Ovcharani, Aegean Macedonia, where thousands of Macedonians gather every year to celebrate their Macedonian heritage and history. But, as per Article 7(2) of the illegal “Prespa Agreement”, these Macedonians are not permitted to exist as the terms “Macedonia” and “Macedonian” were handed to Greece. Macedonians have endured over a century of persecution by Greece, simply for being Macedonian, and are not permitted to self-identify as such under Greek law. Now, the Western-supported "Prespa Agreement" has validated Greek anti-Macedonian racism.
