We are here at this protest to express disagreement with the Macedonian top leadership, especially with the Prime Minister Zoran Zaev who touches the core of the Macedonian identity, Professor Trajko Slaveski said Friday’s protest in Bitola organized by VMRO-DPMNE.

According to him, the disagreement is that even after their requests for a meeting, getting informed with what is being negotiated, with whom it is being negotiated, it did not happen. According to him, that is completely incorrect.

We are here together with the citizens of Bitola to say that this must not pass, we are Macedonians, the Macedonian identity has been like this for centuries, the Macedonian language has long been recognized and we will not accept any denial from the representatives of the Republic of Bulgaria, at least from our elected officials, because someone chose them, which in this case are on the verge of betrayal, says the professor.
