Many, have chosen to not renew this time around so the next global (?) conference maybe their last - very costly event, wine and dine American politicians aka temporary support.

They hardly make any money after paying rent & Meto's salary I would imagine. Their biggest supporter seems to be a Turkish Diaspora organisation. Other Turkish Diaspora organisations have had dubious links with USA government in the past, this may well be the same but we cannot be sure. The agenda of UMD has never been clear.

UMD Urges EU Leaders to Support Macedonia
Tuesday, 01 November 2011
November 1, 2011 – Washington, D.C. – The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) urged today all twenty-seven European Union (EU) members’ Heads of State to support the Republic of Macedonia’s EU aspirations. Macedonia has been an EU candidate since 2005.
In the letter to all EU leaders from UMD Board Chairman Stojan Nikolov and UMD President Metodija A. Koloski, UMD called on the EU leaders to follow the recommendations by the European Commission, for the last three years, and grant Macedonia its well-deserved start for accession talks at the upcoming December Council meeting..........
http://umdiaspora.org/content/view/617/9/
May i ask why all the urge for Macedonia EU membership?

Why would you want Macedonia to become totally controlled by a totalitarian regime?

Why would you want Macedonia's sovereignty completely taken away?

Are you aware of the Nazi roots of the Brussels EU by any chance?

You should ask a guy called Currency Trader about this. He had been abducted by the EU in his childhood and probed inappropriately during experiments. I think he liked it.

But the UMD on the other hand (or perhaps the exact same hand) like the EU because they believe it is good for Macedonia. I am not convinced the Diaspora thinks it is good for Macedonia .... but the UMD does not represent the Diaspora.
