UMD: ACT NOW!
The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) calls upon all Macedonians world wide to support the Macedonian minority in Bulgaria.
Over the past 50 years, successive Bulgarian governments have systematically discriminated against the country’s Macedonian minority. Most recently, Bulgarian authorities have demonstrated a blatant disregard for the right to freedom of expression and association, and are once again attempting to refuse to register the Macedonian organization, OMO Ilinden PIRIN as a legal political party.
Recently, several members of the European Parliament proposed amendments to Parliament member, Geoffrey Van Orden’s draft report on Bulgaria, calling for the country to recognize OMO “Ilinden” PIRIN as a legitimate political party of the state. The Parliament has scheduled a debate on the issue for November 29. The 732 members of the legislative body are expected to cast their vote for the inclusion of the amendments on the following day, November 30.
Help UMD to encourage the Members of the European Parliament to support the amendments and vote YES for their inclusion into the country’s report. By doing so you will be urging Bulgaria, an ascending European Union state, to grant its minorities the basic civil liberties guaranteed to them under international law and human rights commitments.
MD: Do you remember the post with the words of the Bulgarian municipal councillor, Veselin Danov when he said that "all Macedonians should be shot dead when walking the streets" ?? Sure you do!! That's why you got to ACT NOW!
