Boris Johnson Apply London Mayor's Anti-EU, US Arguments to Macedonia Name Dispute and It Would Be Over

Press Release

March 27, 2016

Re: Boris Johnson: Americans would never accept EU restrictions – so why should we?

In anticipation of Barack Obama's upcoming visit to the United Kingdom, in which he will implore the UK to stay in the European Union, London mayor, Boris Johnson, said that "...coming from Uncle Sam, it is a piece of outrageous and exorbitant hypocrisy." True. No nation has the right to tell another how to run its internal affairs.

Toronto Star MHRMI Responds to Toronto Star's Pro-Greek Revisionist History

Press Release

January 29, 2016

In Cody Punter's January 26, 2016 article, he states that "Skopje, Macedonia, has been transformed into a majestic Hellenistic Disneyland in recent years, thanks to a neo-classical building program".

Is Mr. Punter not aware of the serious issues between Macedonia and Greece that have dominated the region since 1991? The infamous, nonsensical name dispute, initiated by Greece in its attempts to eradicate Macedonia's existence would not be celebrated by the Republic of Macedonia by erecting statues of non-existent "Greek" heroes.

Matthew Nimetz Our Name Is Macedonia

January 26, 2016

Help MHRMI end the senseless name negotiations. Demand that the world denounce them and that Macedonia withdraws immediately. Use # OurNameIsMacedonia and visit www.mhrmi.org/our_name_is_macedonia .

. @ UN Matthew Nimetz, would u negotiate your name? Denounce name dispute as attack on
#Macedonia like your predecessor did - #OurNameIsMacedonia

Quote from Robin O'Neil, the first UN negotiator for the name dispute:
"Macedonia must not and will not change its name in order to appease Greece. If Macedonia succumbs to pressures and changes its name, such events will only give more firepower to Greece until it reaches its final goal - Macedonia to vanish from the map."

This Is Macedonia Canada Can, and Must, End the Macedonia/Greece Name Dispute

Press Release

October 5, 2015

It just takes one Western country to stand up for common sense and denounce the nonsensical name negotiations between Macedonia and Greece as an attack on human rights and a country's basic right to self-determination. The Greek-manufactured dispute based on its blatant xenophobia would instantly be over. Now which country will it be? For that matter, an international human rights organization would carry a lot of weight too. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, you've had twenty-plus years, what are you waiting for?

Annual Report Annual Report on the Human Rights Situation of the Macedonians in Bulgaria

Covering events of 2014


In 2014 the fundamental problems relating to the Macedonian minority in Bulgaria remained the same as they had been in previous years; namely:

1. Refusal to acknowledge the existence of a Macedonian minority.
2. The failure to grant to Macedonians those rights specified in the European Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.
3. The refusal of the authorities to enter into dialogue with the Macedonian minority.
4. The refusal to register Macedonian organizations.
5. Hate speech directed against Macedonians.

The Greeks – Agamemnon to Alexander the Great North American Museums Perpetuate Myth of Greek Ethnic Continuity

Press Release

December 15, 2014

Four North American museums, in association with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, have embarked on an ambitious quest to spread the myth of a 5,000 year-old "Greek" culture, including the misappropriation of Macedonian king, Alexander the Great. The exhibition is called "The Greeks – Agamemnon to Alexander the Great" and is currently on display at Pointe-a-Calliere, Montreal and will be followed by displays at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, the Field Museum in Chicago and the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. Irresponsibly, the project was sponsored, in part, by the Department of Canadian Heritage and promoted by the Embassy of Canada to Greece.
