Release No. 06-08/02

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Ilinden Uprising on the Day of the Prophet St. Elijah (August 2nd) signifies the start of the modern Macedonian Republic as a stronghold of the first multi-ethnic, Balkan state.

The Ilinden Uprising was a joint fight for freedom from the Ottoman yoke, and a cultural movement to freely nurture the ancient Macedonian tradition.
