Rallies for united Macedonia resume in Skopje, across whole country

Rallies for united Macedonia resume in Skopje, across whole country

Skopje, 20 March 2017 (MIA) - Rallies of the 'Civic Initiative for United Macedonia' resumed Monday in Skopje, across the country, with protesters reaffirming their demands for preserving Macedonia's unitary status and rejecting the so-called 'Tirana platform'.

Today the protesters sent a message to President Gjorge Ivanov to not succumb to pressure. They also reiterated their call for a meeting with Commissioner for European Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn.

'If the Commissioner refuses to meet us, who have been on the streets for 22 days, we will take care for him to hear us,' said Bogdan Ilevski, one of the rally organizers, announcing the largest protest for tomorrow.

If the international community cares for these people and country, the least it could do is to denounce the so-called 'Tirana platform', actor Vasil Zafircev said.

Macedonia is not yet full-fledged EU, NATO member because its name and identity are being denied, Zafircev said.

Today, the 'Civic Initiative for United Macedonia' organized rallies in about 30 cities across the country. lk/20:34
