On Tuesday, rallies of the Civic Initiative for Joint Macedonia resumed. Participants have marched as usual from the Government building to the Assembly, carrying Macedonian red and yellow flags and pictures of renowned Macedonian revolutionaries.
The civic movement reiterates that they will not allow for a speaker of the Parliament to be nominated if he or she does not publicly denounce the Tirana platform, which breaches the constitution and affects the unitary character of the country. Organizers say that they are to be on alert and will not permit for the Tirana platform to be accepted contrary to citizens’ will.
The organizers of the rallies say that citizens and Gjorge Ivanov safeguard Macedonia at the moment. They add that Bildt has not mentioned the constitutional name of Macedonia not even once, and furthermore refers to its citizens as “Slavo-Macedonians’.
“President, support us and we will support you. May you stay well and healthy,” Bogdan Ilievski, one of the organizers of the rallies, said.
Elena Misirkova highlighted that Macedonia is in danger, and added that the country needed to be kept within the current borders. Furthermore, she called on all nationalities and minorities to join the movement.
“We cannot be held hostage by a small group of people who only care about their interests,” said Misirkova.
Rallies are to resume on Wednesday. On Friday, organizers informed, further activities of the movement will be revealed.
