PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Thursday, September 13, 2018
In light of the ‘ambiguous’ VMRO-DPMNE statement via their press conference earlier today, The World Aegean Macedonian Council – Australia wants to again categorically call for a boycott of the illegal and treacherous referendum on the Republic of Macedonia’s name and constitutional change slated for the 30th of September 2018.
“We call upon all citizens of The Republic of Macedonia to boycott any participation in this illegal referendum”, said WAMC-A President, Nik Petrov.
We call on VMRO-DPMNE to show strength and leadership and not bow to pressure from Central European nations and the USA. We urge the leadership of VMRO-DPMNE to hold the course, show true patriotism and do what is right by The Republic of Macedonia, its citizens, the Macedonian’s in occupied Aegean, Pirin and Mala Prespa, and the Macedonians all over the world. We urge VMRO-DPMNE to call its members in The Republic of Macedonia to boycott the upcoming referendum immediately.
Any person, political party, organisation, anyone in general; anywhere in the world, which votes ‘YES’ in this referendum will be seen as traitors. Any support for the ‘YES’ vote, or to allow this illegal process to take place supports the denouncement of the nation, its citizens, its history, its prosperity, and its future. Any support in any capacity is blatant treason.
The World Aegean Macedonian Council calls for a BOYCOTT in this illegal referendum. We urge the citizens of The Republic of Macedonia TO NOT PARTAKE IN IT IN ANY FORMAT. Send a message to the USA, its partners, this despicable government, and any other political party in The Republic of Macedonia that supports the ‘YES’ vote or that supports this illegal process, that we, the Macedonian people, will NOT tolerate such treason and national character assassination.
