Toronto, Canada – Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) has issued its 2008 Annual Report – The Macedonian Minority in Greece, outlining Greece’s systematic policy of forced assimilation and persecution of its Macedonian minority.
“Greece vigorously denies the existence of any ethnic minorities on its territory and attempts to suppress any voices that advocate human rights. Simply raising the issue of the Macedonian minority in Greece causes Greek citizens and politicians alike to react in outrage. The majority of Greek society supports its government’s non-recognition and discrimination of its large Macedonian minority“, said MHRMI president Bill Nicholov.
