Default Next Year in Lerin Question & Answer Session

See the video from the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival: YouTube - Next Year in Lerin Q & A

Next Year in Lerin Screened at Hot Springs Film Festival

Next Year in Lerin is a documentary film that portrays the story of Nikola and Vasil, ethnic Macedonians in their 60s who wish to visit their birthplace in Aegean Macedonia, now northern Greece, and the difficulties they encounter is this quest.

With a grant from UMD, the film director Jill Daniels was able to travel to Hot Springs, Arkansas, from London to discuss the film in front of an audience of 150.

UMD thanks Mr. & Mrs. George and Slavka Bogdanov from Arkansas for hosting Ms. Daniels and for contacting UMD to facilitate contact with the Film Festival Organizing Committee.

Your attacks and lies of UMD have become cumbersome.

UMD has nothing to hide, its policies are public, and there is no between the lines. Yes, of course, we know you can write another post and make more claims against UMD, however, your arguments have been refuted by TrueMacedonian on Maknews Forum.

Read a letter to the Greek President by UMD: http://umdiaspora.org/content/view/20/9/ This defuses your assertions that UMD rejects our links to the ancient Macedonians.

Regarding the Framework Agreement, read UMD President Metodija A. Koloski's article Hope for My Homeland: http://www.macedonianalliance.com/Ar...0Macedonia.htm

Another article: http://www.macedonianalliance.com/Ar...rimination.htm

Read the latest resolution passed by UMD's Board of Directors: http://umdiaspora.org/content/view/418/1/

Members of this Forum can now decide for themselves what Pelister's reasons are behind his postings on this Forum, Maknews Forum, and others. Pelister holds no merit.

UMD invites all who want to get involved to join the organization and get active to the best of their ability and time availability. As we have said in previous posts, we need less talk, and more action. While we are spending time talking on a Forum, the Greek community is getting more organized against Macedonia and Macedonians. Time to unite, our friends. United, We Can!
FACTS about UMD.

I have read those articles.

The President of UMD actually says that the ancient Macedonians were Dorians. He references Herodotus in this case. Honest mistake ?

The fact is you have still not been able to provide a straight answer ! T.M has not refuted these statements by UMD, as you have said. He is trying to play broker between what is a shady, and two-faced organization, and myself.

But some FACTs REMAIN.

1. The fact is the current President of UMD publicly spoke about various name changes. (This has not been explained).

2. UMD argued for a "suspension" to the "talks" on the basis that Greece was not serious about a name change. (UMD's support for a name change, has not been explained).

3. Other FACTS about UMD. UMD have publicly stated that they accept admission of Macedonia to NATO by the term FYROM. (This has not been explained).

4. The current Vice-President of UMD has stated that negotiations are the only way toward gaining admission to these Western organizations.

5. He has also stated that our links to the ancient Macedonians are damaging us politically.

6. The current President has praised MPO and forged close ties to its membership, arguing that MPO "can be turned around".

7. UMD Ideology envisions a Macedonia of individual citizens, of membership based on citizenship, not ethnicity or culture or language.

All UMD have been able to produce are personal accusations, and shifty and shady remarks conveniently skirting the FACTS.

Producing contrary public statements subsequently about name changes, and the negotiations does not actually address these revealing FACTS. They simply high light the gaping holes and contradictions in our politics, which suggests UMD has been lying to the Macedonian people.

Default $5,000 Needed to Screen A Name is A Name in Washington, D.C.

UMD would like to hold a public screening of the new documentary A Name is A Name in Washington, D.C. in the beginning of 2010 (January or February). In order to hold such an event, it will cost UMD $5,000.00, this will include rental for a theatre, catering for a pre- or post-screening reception, and minimal marketing of the film (printed invitations and flyers). This is for one screening only. It would be great to have a two-night public screening one week apart so word of mouth can spread. But our goal is to raise $5,000.00 in order to hold this screening.

As you know the Greek-American community and the Greek diplomatic community in Washington, D.C. has been in uproar trying to not allow the screening of A Name is A Name or anywhere else for that matter. They put so much pressure that the Icelandic Ambassador canceled a private screening at his home, which several members of Congress were planning to attend.

Are we going to allow them to deny our right of freedom of speech in the United States, and other places? NO!

Help us raise $5,000 for a public screening of A Name is A Name. Donate TODAY by visiting http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaID=137419 Write in the amount under DONATE field and then at the bottom put in the note section "A Name is A Name." UMD will ensure the money you donate goes towards this project. If you can help fundraise in your community please e-mail us at [email protected] or call us at (202) 756-2244.

Default UMD Dismayed at CoE Committee of Ministers Resolution to Override ECHR Judgement

The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) expressed dismay over a December 1, 2009 resolution passed by the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers regarding the registration of the political party of the ethnic Macedonian national minority in Bulgaria, OMO Ilinden PIRIN. The resolution encourages OMO Ilinden PIRIN to go through the Bulgarian legal system again and re-register the party under the new Bulgarian law for political parties. This resolution contradicts the October 20, 2005 judgment of the European Court of Human Rights (United Macedonian Organization Ilinden – PIRIN and others against Bulgaria), in which the Court held, unanimously, that there had been a violation of Article 11 (freedom of assembly and association) of the European Convention on Human Rights. To date, Bulgaria has not implemented the ECHR judgment to allow the registration of OMO Ilinden PIRIN as a political party.

Absolutely pathetic, these western European hyprocritical racists!

Macedonia has no friends, no sponsors, no support. It is just us. We are not even in the EU and are forced to make so many changes to our systems, so many concessions, etc, and these racist animals in Bulgaria and Greece, who are EU members, do not have to comply with EU rulings, and when they don't for long enough, the ruling changes to suit them.

Macedonians, never forget the words of Krste Misirkov, Bulgaria is one of Macedonia's greatest demons. Never forget.

UMD
Does the Council of Europe have the authority to overrule the European Court of Human Rights?

This is ridiculous. The Macedonians in Pirin have every right to be who they rightful are. Macedonians! SoM is right about Western Europe. They are hypocritical racists.
