The Macedonians of the
Macedonian American Diaspora
Macedonians of the Macedonian American Diaspora, consider this August 13th,
2001, the day of the signing of "The Peace Agreement", to be one of the
darkest and most ignominious days in the long, turbulent, rich and tragic
history of Macedonia and the Macedonian people and our noble, courageous and
epic struggle for independence, sovereignty and national identity and dignity.
We consider this "agreement" to be a repeated twenty-first
variation of the "Berlin Congress of 1878", "The Bucharest Treaty", "The
Paris Conference", "The Treaty of Neilly", which have repeatedly and
progressively reduced the territory of Macedonia, thwarted the legitimate
national aspirations of the Macedonians and denied them the fundamental and
inalienable human right for self determination, self expression and self
realization on the territory of their ancestral land within their own native
state of Macedonia.
We the Macedonians of the Macedonian American Diaspora
consider this "Peace Agreement" to be an illegitimate and invalid "agreement",
an illegitimate and invalid "treaty", an illegitimate and invalid "document",
brutally forced upon the Macedonian government by means of organized, armed
aggression from Kosovo and Albania.
Furthermore, we consider this "document" invalid because
it has been signed by way of unprecedented political, military and economic
blackmail, by NATO, the EU and the United States, upon the free democratic will
of the Macedonian people.
We consider this "treaty" to be in violation and in
contradiction of every national and international code of law and ethics as well
as the code of conduct, including that of the UN Charter of Human Rights.
This "agreement" is nothing but a brutal, barbaric and blatant abrogation of the
democratic, historic and moral fundamental and inalienable right of the
Macedonian people to choose, of their own free will, by the expression of their
democratic right, the fashion in which they will create their own country and
the universal principles of sovereignty, independence and justice.
We consider all the signatories of this act (domestic and
foreign) as participants in an illegal and criminal act directed not only at
Macedonia and the Macedonian people but against the whole of the freedom loving
Today, once again, as many times in the past, we, the
Macedonians, have been forced at gun and knife point to relinquish a measure of
our culture, heritage, territory and national sovereignty to brutal and
mercenary puppets and their puppet masters, this time embodied in "NLA/KLA" and
NATO, EU, USA and the "New Global World Order".
We declare this day a day of ignominy and shame not only
for Macedonia and its people but for Europe, for all NATO members, as well as
the rest of the world.
Today we declare that Macedonia has been raped in full
view of the entire civilized world, and we notice with profound sorrow and
disappointment that the world has remained silent, blind, deaf and desensitized.
Like in the ancient myth of the rape of Europa, the
beautiful virgin maiden abducted by the perverted appetite of the god Zeus,
Macedonia and her innocence, her national linguistic, religious, spiritual and
cultural heritage, her sovereignty, independence, honor and dignity have been
carried on the naked back of the savage bull and have been trampled under his
Today, we the Macedonians of the Macedonian American
Diaspora warn the entire world that the rape of Macedonia is not only a
Macedonian national shame, outrage and catastrophe. It is an outrage and
rape of the universal, fundamental, moral principles upon which civilizations in
Europe, America Africa, Asia, Australia and all over the world, have been
This "peace agreement" is a national tragedy for the
Macedonians not only in Macedonia but all over the world. It is a tragedy
for the whole of humanity which depends for its existence upon the rules of law,
order and democracy.
We, the Macedonians, of the Macedonian American Diaspora
do solemnly and proudly declare that we are beginning a National and a Universal
struggle of Resistance to restore Macedonia to its status of a Nation State with
Constitutional Democracy in which the rule of the law is paramount. We
call upon all the Macedonian people all over the world, all the friends of
Macedonia, as well as all of humanity to join us in our struggle to resist the
injustice of the New Global World Order.
If Macedonia resists so will the World!
