2014 Olympics in Sochi Russia When Will Macedonia Be Allowed to Compete in the Olympics?

Press Release

February 12, 2014

"The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" walked in the Winter Olympic opening ceremonies in Sochi, Russia among the other countries that start with the letter "B" (The word "former" begins with "B" in Russian), and waving little flags that somewhat resemble the real Macedonian flag. It was changed in 1995 to appease Greece, the country that is trying to wipe it off the map. When the Olympics are hosted by English-speaking countries, "The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" walks in with the "F"s. Or would it be more appropriate to walk in with the "T"s?

Press Release

January 22, 2014

How many times has the United States, in its noble goal to spread freedom and democracy throughout the world chosen the wrong side in a dispute that it had no business getting involved with in the first place, and subsequently wreaked havoc for decades afterward?

Council of Europe International Human Rights Day and the "Celebrations" of the Council of Europe

Press Release

December 10, 2013

The Council of Europe held an event on November 25, 2013 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Framework Convention (for the Protection of National Minorities).

It would have been more appropriate to revisit the failures of the implementation of the Framework Convention. A perfect opportunity would have been the Advisory Committees third visit to Bulgaria, which took place from November 11-15, 2013. Bulgaria has ratified the agreement but is free to continue denying the existence of its Macedonian minority, execute state-sponsored discrimination and ignore various European Court of Human Rights rulings in favour of the Macedonian minority.

UN Hypocrisy The United Nations - Spreading Hypocrisy Throughout the World

Press Release

November 18, 2013

The United Nations General Assembly must realize the irony in recently electing, as it refers to it, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council for 2014-2016. In Macedonia, the UNHRC is getting a member-state that is incapable of defending its own most basic human right, that of self-identification, by continuing to participate in the ludicrous UN-sponsored name negotiations.

Press Release

April 26, 2013

This week the US State Department released its annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2012. In its report on Greece, under the sub-heading National/Racial/ Ethnic Minorities, the following was stated about the situation and treatment of the Macedonian minority:

The government did not recognize the existence of a Slavic dialect, called Macedonian by its speakers; nevertheless, a small number of its speakers identified themselves as Macedonian, a designation that generated strong opposition from other citizens."

Catherine Ashton ACT NOW: Contact your Member of Congress to Denounce the Name Negotiations!

Press Release

April 17, 2013

The recent proposal by UN mediator, Matthew Nimetz, that Macedonia change its name to "Upper Republic of Macedonia" in order to appease Greece and be "considered" for entry into the European Union and NATO highlights the urgent need for this appeal. The EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, also called on Macedonia to change its name and claimed, "...there is no other alternative, there is no other way forward. And to act sooner is better than later. This is the only way towards progress on your European path."

There is another way forward. Macedonia must stop negotiating its own name and stop begging to get into the European Union and NATO.

Matthew Nimetz MHRMI and AMHRC Call on Nimetz to Resign Post and to Denounce Name Negotiations

Press Release

April 16, 2013

MHRMI and AMHRC call on the current UN mediator, Matthew Nimetz, to publicly come to the same conclusion as his predecessor, resign his post and denounce the nonsensical name negotiations.

Macedonians worldwide are vehemently against the name negotiations and rightly so, as it is common sense to see that there is no "solution" when one country is being asked to change its name to appease another country's racist notion that it has no right to exist.
