Some of our sportspeople have the right idea.
Meanwhile the Macedonian government goes to court to enforce FYROM. Wonders never cease.

They should also start using the original flag more frequently and if possible exclusively, together with the above actions by our sportspeople it would send an even stronger message.

The Macedonian government is in the driver's seat on this matter.
But I agree, a grassroots campaign by anyone in public exposure would be marvellous.

Apparently Croatia refused to play as well because of Macedonia's stance. Is this correct? What is up their arse?

[QUOTE]Greeks wouldn't be Greeks if they don't insert politics into a sporting event. During the opening ceremony of the European Beach Handball championship in Umag, Croatia, Greece and Cyprus refused to take part because of the Macedonian national team jerseys where the country's name was visible.

The hosts in Umag were neither surprised nor rattled by this and the ceremony went as planned. Greece and Cyprus have made a hoby to protest at all sporting events where Macedonia takes part. Typically Cyprus wouldn't protest, however this time its bigger cousins from Athens forced them to.

The Macedonian beach handball players didn't seem to mind when the Greeks and Cypriots headed for the bleachers.

Macedonia and Greece do not have the best of relations since 1991, while Skopje has yet to establish diplomatic relations and recognize the divided island of Cyprus. [/QUOTE]

Umag is in Croatia, the article is saying tha the event was held in Umag, Croatia. It's grammer isn't too good, but it was only Greece and Cyrpus that refused to play.

Regardless of the imbecile names the Alexander Statue seems to be having an effect on people which is a good sign.

[B]Lets hope our people start rejecting the FYR all over the world. [/B]
