Macedonians from Australia are demanding an immediate stop of the “absurd name negotiations”. The Macedonian government must make a formal and direct request to the UN to recognize Macedonia under its constitutional name. 137 countries of the UN have recognized our country as the Republic of Macedonia. Legal and moral is the obligation of the UN to allow Macedonia to move forward without interference and boycotting from Greece.
“We urge the UN to stop double standards by ignoring the human rights of the Macedonian minority in Greece, Albania and Bulgaria, to stop encouraging the separatist and racist demands of the Albanian minority in Macedonia in their demands for a greater Albania.”
More than 15 protests were held today in countries around the world where Macedonians express their opposition to the name change negotiations.
