Default The Macedonian National Liberation Front

The Macedonian National Liberation Front//Народно Ослободителен Фронт на Македонија, was a Macedonian paramilitary founded in Aegean Macedonia in 1945 to fight against the Monarcho-Fascist government of the Greek state in hope for secession from or at least rights within Greece. The MNLF merged with the Communist, Democratic Army of Greece the following year in which it is estimated Macedonians made-up 60% of the fighting force. The DAG and MNLF were both defeated by the Greek government and their American-British allies in 1949, which saw the expulson of an estimated 30,000 children from their homes in Aegean Macedonia.

The Congress of what I am assuming to be the Slavo-Macedonian Liberation Front sometime during WW2. Anyone know why they called themselves 'Slavo-Macedonians'? Pretty odd for the time given other partisan groups didn't. I can only assume this was done for emphasis and was soon dropped.

Probably to endear themselves to Tito and the Yugoslavs. It was never (or hardly ever) used in common parlance.

Yes I know as it was dropped by successive organisations. Oddly it was never used by the Macedonians in Yugoslavia though, strange act.
