Macedonians in Calgary, Canada protest against Law on Languages and name negotiations (video)

Macedonians living and working in Calgary, Canada, staged a protest Saturday against the way the Law on the Use of Languages was adopted in the Macedonian Parliament.

They said they strongly condemned the adoption of the Law on Languages, knowing that it would deepen the gap and ethnic tensions between the Albanian community and the rest of Macedonian society.

“We also urge the Macedonian Government to immediately stop the name negotiations with the Republic of Greece under the mediation of the United Nations, because it violates the Macedonian human rights for self-identification and despises the dignity of the Macedonian nation wherever we are. Therefore, we ask the Macedonian government to find alternative solutions that will result in joining the United Nations of the Republic of Macedonia under our constitutional name,” Macedonians in Calgary said.
