Our Name is Macedonia


Who gave YOU the right to negotiate MY name?

The most basic human right is self - identification.

Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) and the Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC) have launched an ad campaign demanding an end to all negotiations with Greece over its name.

MHRMI and AMHRC ask every Macedonian organization, in the country and abroad, to join our call for Macedonia to immediately cease name negotiations.

Saint Elijah day celebrated by the ethnic Macedonians in Greece

Few days ago Macedonians in Greece celebrated their national holiday, Saint Elijah's Day.

Yes! The same Macedonians that don't exist in Greece. The "few hundred Slavs" as Greek government would like to name them. Unfortunately for them,they are not few hundred, they are thousands and thousands, and every day they speak more openly about their past, their roots, their position in the Greek society.

In Ovcarani, near Lerin (greek: Florina) last weekend thousands of Macedonians joined the festivity. They sang, danced, talked and celebrated life. 

The media from Republic of Macedonia were not allowed to cover from Ovcarani. The TV crew from  the national Kanal 5 television station were stopped on the Macedonian/Greek border by the Greek custom and asked for "special permission". Only the reporter was allowed to pass, without equipment. 

This shows the level of democracy, that this EU member country practices. 

Here are few short videos which were uploaded from the festivity. Enjoy! 

Za mnogu godini Makedonci, kade i da ste! Za mnogu godini moj narode, na Makedonija!

"Macedonia for Macedonians" rally 1922 in the USA

This video is from a rally in United States, organized by the Macedonian commune.


Even though some people say that Macedonians are new, artificial nation, without past, a nation created after World War II, this shows the movement of the Macedonians in 1922.


Macedonian community in the United States of America got organized in 1922 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Since then, this organization (MPO) and all the other organization of the Macedonians, in some period were usurped by people who were spreading mainly Bulgarian, and sometimes Greek propaganda. 


Through the years, most of the neighboring Balkan countries, tried to usurp Macedonian history and identity, and by doing that to cover up the segregation of the Macedonians after the Balkan Wars in 1912 - 1913. Let us not forget the genocide over the Macedonian population in Kingdom of Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece in the twenties and the thirties, especially in Greece during and after the Greek civil war 1946 - 1449 .


Macedonians strongly set themselves on the idea of having their own country. Since 8th of September 1991, that idea became reality. Republic of Macedonia is a motherland for all the Macedonians around the world and strength that holds them together.


MACEDONIA FOR MACEDONIAN. UNITED MACEDONIA!

CNN on Macedonia's name issue

The World media finally decided to spend some time, and analyze the "Macedonian issue", the name dispute and the meaningless requests by the Greek government.

The reporter Nic Robertson plastically presents the current situation, interviews the Prime minister Nikola Gruevski, and shows a new perspective on the whole problem.

I think that finally is the time for the World to know that Macedonia is mobbed by Greece, and that all international law are broken in this despute with no ending.

Mother Teresa Memorial House

Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), born Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu (Agnes Gondza Bojadziu), was a Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta), India in 1950.

Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu was born on 26 August 1910, in Skopje, capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Although she was born on August 26, she considered August 27, the day she was baptized, to be her "true birthday." Her father Nikola, died in 1919 when she was eight years old. 


In her early years Agnes was fascinated by stories of the lives of missionaries and their service, and by age 12 was convinced that she should commit herself to a religious life.She left home at age 18 to join the Sisters of Loreto as a missionary. She never again saw her mother or sister.


The Memorial house of Mother Teresa is non profit organization financed by the Government of Republic of Macedonia.

The Location of the museum is not randomly chosen. That is to say, on this exact place the old Catholic Church “Sacred heart of Jesus” used to stand. It is where Mother Teresa, then Gonxha Bojaxhiu was baptized just one day after her birth, on the 27th of august 1910, place where she received her first communion and where she find her inner peace after her father’s death.


This place had a great importance and influence on developing of the character of young Gonxha and to her desire to help the poor people. Since she was a child she sang in the Catholic Church choir and participated in charity organizations. Somehow the location itself represents a symbolic bridge that connects little Gonxha to one of the greatest humanitarian of the world, Mother Teresa.


The desire to pay respect to one the most famous person and Nobel Prize winner from Macedonia was accomplished on the 30-th of January 2009 with the opening of the Memorial house dedicated to Mother Teresa. 


The next day, on January 31, 2009 the Memorial house of Mother Teresa was formally promoted in front of several hundred of people. For this special occasion the Catholic Church brought a relic of Mother Teresa.
