Macedonian people who live and work everywhere around the world, with great honor an a special sense of dignity and pride are celebrating Macedonian national values and identity markings.
This is the case with the Macedonian community in Canada and the Macedonians who are in a way much forward from many of the other Macedonian communities around the world.
Representatives from the Macedonian community in Canada during the yesterday community service established the Macedonian national flag in front of the Macedonian Orthodox church “Saint Petka” in a public display event and declared powerful messages for the Macedonians around the world and all the public everywhere.
In addition we publish some of the messages declared by the representatives of the Macedonians in Canada from the same event:
Macedonian-Canadian Community Denounces Illegally-Imposed Name Change on the Republic of Macedonia
“The rule of law, democratic principles, human rights and the will of the people” are supposed values that all Western countries espouse, yet they blatantly violate them in the illegal name change forced on the Republic of Macedonia, which changes the name, identity, and history of Macedonia and all Macedonians throughout the world. This includes all regions of Macedonia, partitioned in 1913 among Serbia/Yugoslavia (now the independent Republic of Macedonia), Bulgaria, Greece, and later, Albania.
Eradicating the existence of an ethnic group to appease its oppressors and to satisfy Western interventionism will not be tolerated by Macedonians, nor should it be tolerated by anyone claiming to defend human rights.
Therefore, the Macedonian-Canadian community:
condemns all use of the illegally-imposed name “ Macedonia” on the Republic of Macedonia and the racist term “Northern Macedonian” to refer to Macedonians;
condemns the use of the 8-rayed flag that was designed to appease our biggest oppressor, Greece.
It will be removed from all Macedonian churches, buildings and Macedonian events in Canada;
condemns any attempts to change the name of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, including current pressure to remove ‘Macedonian’ and replace with ‘Ohrid Archbishopric’ declares that all personnel of the illegitimate Zaev regime to be persona non grata in the Macedonian-Canadian community;
demands immediate defense of the Republic of Macedonia’s name and our Macedonian identity by the international community;
demands that Macedonian politicians end all attempts to appease our oppressors; and demands that Macedonian politicians prevent any change to Macedonia’s name.
We will not accept anything other than the respect of our age-old Macedonian name, identity, ethnicity, and history and will not tolerate any attempts to undermine them. Our Name Is Macedonia.
