ACTION ALERT: SBS World News insists on "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia"

SBS has for the past 25 years shown that it is prepared to neglect the feelings of Macedonians in this country by persisting in using this hated descriptor. The AMHRC therefore calls on all Macedonian organisations and individuals in Australia as a whole to express their dissatisfaction by sending a complaint to SBS demanding that it put an end to its discriminatory policy regarding the naming of the Republic of Macedonia and that it show due respect to its many Macedonian viewers. We call on you to make your complaints in a forthright, but polite and respectful manner.

Details about making a complaint to SBS regarding this matter can be found at the following links: and
