United Macedonians Organisations of Canada Supports Call to End Name Negotiations

Toronto, Canada - The United Macedonians Organization of Canada (UM) proudly supports the Our Name is Macedonia ad campaign initiated by Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) and the Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC). The campaign demands that the Republic of Macedonia end all negotiations with Greece over its name.

For over 50 years, the United Macedonians Organization of Canada has been working to defend Macedonian rights throughout Macedonia and the world. Macedonians must unite and tell the Macedonian government, and the world, that the name negotiations must be stopped.

As stated by MHRMI/AMHRC, Macedonians must also demand that countries that have recognized the Republic of Macedonia publicly support it and not call for "compromise". UM is lobbying internationally in order to gain this support and calls on Macedonians throughout the world to join us.

The Our Name is Macedonia campaign is the most crucial work being done since independence and is the reason that UM is proud to announce that it has made a financial contribution to help ensure its continued success. UM calls on every Macedonian organization in the diaspora to do the same, and to publicly show their support by signing on to the campaign.


The United Macedonians Organization of Canada is the oldest and largest Macedonian national and cultural organization in the diaspora. Our mission is to promote national unity of Macedonians worldwide. For more information, please visit www.unitedmacedonians.org or call 416-490-0181 .
