PAN-MACEDONIAN ASSOCIATION OF THE MACEDONIAN STRUGGLE
The upcoming and much advertised erection of the Arch of Macedonia in Skopje's central square of the FYROM is a confirmation of a shameless theft and forgery of Greek history. It is a blatant anti-European violation of the Interim Accord between the FYROM and Greece (signed in 1995) and the violation of any notion of abiding with International Law and good neighborly relations of a country, candidate for EU and NATO membership. The tolerance and civilized manner that Greece is displaying with the FYROM stance should not be misconstrued as weakness, because everything has limits. Macedonian History, the glory of Hellenism and the Macedonian name do not change nor do they get lost because the residents of the neighboring FYROM, mostly Slavs, are anxiously looking for national identity. We demand immediate restoration of our national dignity and history which we preserved for thousands of years. .
