Toronto, Canada and Melbourne, Australia (April 10, 2013) - Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) and the Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC) congratulate Nova Zora, the largest pro-Macedonian newspaper in Aegean Macedonia, on its third anniversary. To see a video of the celebration, please visit:
Nova Zora is funded by MHRMI and AMHRC, has distributed hundreds of thousands of newspapers throughout Aegean Macedonia, and has been published every month since its inception, despite constant threats and attempts to wipe it out.
"The editorial board of Nova Zora expresses its gratitude to MHRMI and AMHRC. Without their tremendous help, Nova Zora would not be able to carry on its struggle for equal rights for all Macedonians. MHRMI and AMHRC are truly the only organizations in the Macedonian diaspora that fund human rights projects for Macedonians in the Balkans", said Dimitri Ioannou (Jovanov), editor of Nova Zora.
Help Macedonians overcome the human rights abuses that they face on a daily basis by joining the MHRMI Human Rights Fund or the AMHRC's Macedonian Minorities Support Fund. MHRMI and the AMHRC are the only organizations in the Macedonian diaspora that finance and organize Macedonian human rights activities in the Balkans. Your donation will go directly to funding vital Macedonian human rights activities.
