Today we observe October 23-Day of the Macedonian Revolutionary Struggle, proudly remembering the Macedonian revolutionaries to whom we bow and honor their sacrifice, steely perseverance and unbreakable will for freedom, justice, equality, independence and statehood, says Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.

He said the struggle of the Macedonian revolutionaries was never motivated either for territories or for domination over each other, but for the rule of the principles of justice, responsibility and equality.

The struggle of the Macedonian revolutionaries never looked towards the past, but towards the future. In the spirit of this pledge, on behalf of our unique future as part of a democratic and progressive world, with NATO and European Union membership, we have extended a hand of cooperation to all our neighbors, reads Zaev’s note.
