The Macedonian Truth Organisation Inc. (MTO Inc.) would like to call on Macedonians to carefully consider Prime Minister Gruevski’s speech before the United Nations General Assembly before praising it.
Rather than declaring the Interim Accord ‘null and void’, successive Macedonian Governments have continued to undermine and deconstruct Macedonian sovereignty. The Prime Minister has made it blatantly clear that his Government is willing to accept a name change and has even offered to organise a ‘referendum’ to rubber stamp such an act.
Worse yet, the Prime Minister has insulted all Macedonians by promoting the capitulations under the Interim Accord, and in particular the imposed changes by a foreign government to the Macedonian Constitution and flag, as a ‘positive’ step. Only the Macedonian people have the sovereign right to determine the content of their own Constitution and national symbols.
The Interim Accord is an attack on Macedonian freedom and the Macedonian identity. To have the Prime Minister continue to implement such an Accord and speak of it in such high regard is an act of treason against his own sovereign – the Macedonian people.
The MTO Inc. again calls on the Macedonian Government to declare the Interim Accord ‘null and void’, and in doing so, end all negotiations concerning Macedonia’s name, which only the Macedonians themselves have a right to determine. The MTO Inc. further urges the Macedonian Government to simply inform the United Nations of its official state name as “Republic of Macedonia” for conventional long-form purposes and “Macedonia” for conventional short-form purposes, without undertaking unnecessarily complicated readmission procedures which will only further undermine Macedonian sovereignty.
