Government orders organizations to remove ‘Macedonian’ from their names


Today the Government sent out orders to dozens of public institutions ordering them to change the signs they have posted and to begin using the name “Republic of North Macedonia” in the new signs.

The institutions are also ordered to review their web sites and to scrub the name Republic of Macedonia from them.

The list includes iconic institutions such as the Macedonian Opera and Ballet, which will now be known as the “National Opera and Ballet”. The Macedonian Radio Television would avoid the dreaded North Macedonian Radio Television – SMRT acronym – which translates as “death” in Macedonian, and would be known as the National Radio Television, and the National Gallery of Macedonia would, under this order, have to rename itself into the “National gallery of the Republic of North Macedonia Skopje”.

This flies in the face of the media guidelines which the Foreign Ministry recently published, under which the public was assured that the adjective Macedonian will remain in use for the Macedonian people. Replacing Macedonian with National may be a way to avoid using “North Macedonian” but it also removes the adjective Macedonian and makes it unclear which nation is the institution representing.

    Zoran Zaev, is there nothing wrong with whats happening. Aren’t you the least bit upset at the stripping down and mocking of the Macedonian people. Haven’t we had enough ethnic discrimination for being born Macedonian, Why do we have to be denied our national rights and heritage while the Greeks get to keep both. Even the Albanians have gained more respect for all the great drugs, human trafficking and body parts they’ve distributed around the world. Yet us, we have to live in a world where our Macedonian cities and towns are shadowed by mosques and minarets. Why was Greece allowed to claim its Christian rights and we denied ours. Why do we have to be subjugated by the Albanian muslim minority and get total humiliation in return. I don’t get it! Obviously it can’t be the Russians, they haven’t done a thing for the Macedonians, EVER! So we give our soldiers to NATO in the name of terrorism and Islamic extremists only to be bullied by the ones living within our boarder. All by the same hand that we have helped. Why Mr. Prime Minister don’t you lead, cant you see whats happening here. When you are done as the Primer, you will go down as the worst person Macedonia has ever bore. A tyrant, thief and self serving pig. People will desecrate your grave and curse your offspring. You will never have peace, your innocent kin, they will bear the burden of your sins. God is just, and for this you will receive yours. One person has the ability to change the world!!!
    With 2 million people and all the natural resources in Macedonia, that country should be living like Sweden or Norway. The roads, trains and infrastructure on point. What a Shame!!!
