Rejoice, northadonians, today marks the 3 year anniversary of the signing of the treacherous Prespa Agreement. Time to get drunk on ouzo and celebrate the lie that the Macedonian identity and language were affirmed by this agreement (when in fact the identity was already recognised in most countries and the language was already taught in schools and universities across the world). Celebrate the fact that the agreement neglects Macedonians outside of the Macedonian republic and contributes to the weakening of ties between Macedonians across historical Macedonia (and the rest of the world). Celebrate the fact that the agreement has made it commonplace for international media to refer to the "North Macedonians". Celebrate the fact that you are no longer Macedonians and never have been in spirit. Celebrate your friendship with people who spit in your face and laugh behind your back. Celebrate, on your way to hell, you miserable traitors. Macedonia will rise again.

One of the betrayals in the treacherous Prespa Agreement.
Quote:
ARTICLE 1.3. (b) The nationality of the Second Party shall be Macedonian/citizen of the Republic of North Macedonia, as it will be registered in all travel documents.
Zaev/northadonian spin on the above:

MANU's first man, Taki Fiti, believes that the name dispute is a difficult and painful issue. However, he adds that Macedonia now has a historic chance to secure territorial integrity, protection of Macedonian identity and move towards Euro-Atlantic integrations......Prime Minister Zoran Zaev once again, this time before the academics, claimed that the Macedonian identity and language were sealed once and for all.

"Имаше и обвинувања дека преку Преспанскиот договор ќе го изгубиме идентитетот. Ќе прашам јавно, зарем може изгубен идентитет повторно да го изгубиме. Тој ниту бил изгубен, нитy ќе се изгуби.
The reality, as reflected by international media:

The North Macedonians have lost two matches in Group C and will finish in fourth place in the group no matter the result of their final match against the Netherlands.

It is to Pandev, who has represented his nation for twenty years, that North Macedonians issue their gratitude for competing in the Euros.

This was inevitable. It’s natural to state North Macedonians. How many say South Koreans when referring to Koreans? And it’s confusing for the layman. The commentary at Euro 2020 is proof, with mentions of the “Macedonians” and also “North Macedonians” when referring to the players as a collective during games.

In all seriousness, has any benefit been realised as a result of Prespa?

You're right, it was inevitable. Everybody knew it, including Zaev, despite the lie he kept repeating to the Macedonian public that the agreement will "secure" the Macedonian identity. He knew that in time, this terminology will be normalised in the same way as the fyrom > northadonian ventilator flag. After all, which commentator or journalist is going to bother saying or writing "the Macedonians/citizen of the Republic of North Macedonia have lost two matches in Group C" or "Macedonians/citizen of the Republic of North Macedonia issue their gratitude for competing in the Euros". For now, they are using "Macedonians" and "North Macedonians" interchangeably, probably due to legacy or laziness. Soon it will just be the latter.

None for Macedonia, unless one considers Greece dropping their objection at the EU. But there is more to come from Greece, as indicated by their bitching about the acronyms used at Euro 2020. Greece forced a (political) change of Macedonian identity and a renunciation of the ancient heritage of Macedonia, while Bulgaria trampled nearby like a hyena. Now Greece is the hyena waiting for Bulgaria to dilute the mutated Macedonian identity even further by forcing some imaginary Bulgar roots and a common history from the medieval to modern era. If that succeeds, then they will inevitably come for the church. If Serbia was already in the EU, have no doubt they would be leading the charge on that front. But as they're not, Greece and/or Bulgaria may take advantage instead. Whilst the treacherous concessions with regard to the identity and language haven't been imposed on Macedonians in the diaspora for a variety of reasons (unless there is reference to the country of origin by some outsider, which itself is inaccurate for many of our people), not least because we are too well established and aren't nearly as defeatist and submissive as the Macedonians in the republic, any change to the name of the church (i.e., NMOC-OA or just OA) or its hierarchy (i.e., BOC as the "mother church") will bring the politics of the northadonians in direct confrontation with Macedonian life in the diaspora.

There is already a growing disconnect between Macedonia and the diaspora. For example, since the signing of the treacherous Prespa Agreement, how many northadonian politicians have come to visit the Macedonians in Australia, which currently has the largest (recorded) self-identifying Macedonian population outside of Macedonia? The church is essentially the last great institution binding us together. It's already bad enough that some Macedonian priests mention Petar when reciting prayers and blessings. Can you imagine if they start referring to the church as anything other than Macedonian and/or paying homage to some Bulgar archbishop during a ceremony? I can't see that ever being acceptable here. If they tamper with the church in such a manner, any semblance of Macedonian cultural unity (weak as it currently is) across the seas will be over. We will remain as Macedonians over here. Not sure where their journey will take them if they don't start rising up against the perpetual denigration being perpetrated by their northadonian leaders.

Leftist activist “cancels” late Macedonian playwright because of his “nationalism”

URL:
https://english.republika.mk/news/ma...s-nationalism/

Goran Stefanovski is considered the leading Macedonian playwright of the modern era. Known for the cult classics Tattoed Souls, Wild Flesh, Black Hole and Hi-Fi, Stefanovski dealt with the anguish of his generation and portrayed the misery filled lives of the era of Communist decay. He died in 2018 in England, where he moved with his family to avoid the Yugoslav break-up. Even while abroad, he remained a sought-after voice in Macedonia and generations grew up with his Sesame-street style TV show Fuzzy Alphabeth.

And yet that legacy, coupled with the prestige of his brother, legendary guitarist Vlatko Stefanovski, is not enough to save Goran Stefanovski from being posthumously canceled on Twitter. The move came from Nikola Naumoski (@NikolaNaumeaux on Twitter), who is currently chief of staff of Skopje Mayor Petre Silegov. Naumoski, a close relative of outgoing SDSM Vice President Radmila Sekerinska, is a leftist activist known from the days of the Colored Revolution when he attened an improvised choir – “The Singing Skopians” – of like-minded activists who tried to go viral with songs criticizing the conservative VMRO-DPMNE led Government. He then led a group of self-styled “Park Defenders” who camped out on construction sites in a (failed) attempt to prevent the Skopje 2014 urban renewal project. Both projects are now largely defunct after Naumoski and other Singing Skopians and Park Defenders hold comfy jobs in the public administration after SDSM grabbed power in 2017.

Stefanovski’s comment that caught Naumoski’s eye is the following, often repeated quote from an interview Stefanovski made in 2008 – the year when Greece blocked Macedonia from joining NATO: “You can’t ask me not to feel as part of the deepest and oldest world, when Heraclea is my home, when Ohrid is my home, when Via Egnatia, the only highway that existed in Europe between the 5th and 15th century, traversed next to my grandmother’s home in Bitola. You can’t say that everything is on your side, and nothing is on our side”. The quote is meant as criticism of Greek nationalism, which blocked Macedonia from joining the European Union and NATO for decades, through the so-called “name issue”. Greece insists that, as Slavic speakers, the Macedonians have nothing to do with the ancient past of the region, and that all of it is the cultural heritage exclusively of Greece.

Goran Stefanovski was born in Bitola, built on the ruins of the ancient city of Heraclea Lyncestis, and in his comment he mentions Macedonians chief cultural site – Ohrid and the Roman era highway of Via Egnatia that linked Durres (Dyrrachium) with Solun (Thessaloniki).

Nationalism. But healthy nationalism. Typical of a Gastarbeiter who needs to prove that he is older and richer than his hosts. Full of dubious historic facts, said Naumoski, while quoting Stefanovski’s words.

The comment prompted a moderate level of criticism, even from Twitter users who normally support SDSM. The comment is typical of a strain of thinking in SDSM, the party which agreed not only to impose a new name on Macedonia, but also to mark monuments to historic figures in Macedonia with the words “belonging to the ancient Hellenic civilization“, to scrape off the Kutlesh Sun from all public spaces in the country, and to in general agree that the cultural and historic heritage of the region belongs to Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia – but not to Macedonia. And the on-going blockade of Macedonia’s EU accession talks by Bulgaria means that the demands for concessions are far from over.

Goran Stefanovski’s quote is often understood as criticism of the Greek nationalism, a response to the pressure exerted by Greece for decades against its much weaker neighbor, instead of jingoistic expression of Macedonian pride. But even that is now too much for the ruling party in (North) Macedonia. Stefanovski is seen as a citizen of the world, and of his beloved Debar Maalo part of Skopje, and is certainly not a writer who built a career by promoting Macedonian patriotism like, say, Vojdan Cernodrinski, but even this meekest protestation against the pressure Macedonia is put under seems to be too much for the Young Turks of the ruling party.
