UMD keeps Pelosi Informed

This is a good letter by United Macedonia Diaspora (UMD) to House speaker Nancy Pelosi. Everyone agrees that Macedonia's lobbying efforts can be improved. Some people say our lobbying efforts, like a glass of water is half empty, others say it is half full. While I want to find the dumb F&%k that drank half the glass! See UMD for full letter.

The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) wrote a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring to her attention some concerns regarding Greece’s treatment of minorities and its relations with its neighboring country of Macedonia.

'Today, Macedonians in Greece are banned from speaking their language in public, cannot sing to their traditional folk songs, have had their names transliterated into Greek, and have even had cemetery headstones in the Macedonian Cyrillic script replaced with Greek ones. All of this discrimination is happening in the cradle of Democracy,' OMD said in its letter to House Speaker Pelosi ahead of the meeting with the Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.

The representatives of Macedonian Diaspora in the United States say over 120 countries worldwide, including the United States, Russia, China, India, the United Kingdom, Poland, Turkey, as well as Macedonia’s immediate neighbors, Bulgaria and Serbia, all recognize Macedonia as the Republic of Macedonia. 'To date, the only state with any objection to Macedonia’s use of its constitutional and historic name is Greece.' /end/"
