No problems, all you have to do is drive 10 min there and 10 min back(it doesn't take 20 min from the city) and we can have a 40min discussion - at the Macedonian Community of Adelaide & S.A. incorporated, 146 Crittenden Road, Findon, since you refrained from selecting which community, given that it is half way between you and me, we both meet in the middle. At 8;30 if you can't get away any sooner.

Sounds more like an organised fight than a strategy meeting...

Ok, sorry about the tongue in cheek. Just trying to lighten things up a little.

Meto claimed that protest a UMD initiative. He gave every impression it was solely organised by them. I attended the march. I recall in vivid detail the lengths used to distance every organisation from the event. The claim by Meto was of particular interest to me and I was going to bring it up later. I find it fits the persona of the organisation, it seems to enjoy giving the impression of doing all things for all Macedonians.

There really isn't that much anger or hype just yet on this issue to be able to say that a public demonstration at this stage, would draw enough crowd for it to be deemed successful and more importantly not harmful to the message of mass outcry.

So it's impossible?

In regards to anger and outcry: The headlines from within MK should be coming through over the following days. The editors are sending me high res news clips with subtitles etc.. and am working very hard to gel this on media here for broadcast. Is this enough or not?

I think members of your forum have been destructive and this far out shadows any good that may have taken place here.
In the last 3 days?
That would mean the interest sparked by this forum was the catalyst for their interest. Thanks.

We wanted it to be organised by 'everyone and no-one', if that makes any sense. The aim was to bring our divided community together. I think it did that on many levels.

So you would agree that the UMD claiming it as an initiative on their own would be stretching the truth?

Sorry, I was there this morning. I've done more than enough running around today. Mutual territory is best. Hyatt is nice and quiet on a Tuesday evening.
