Despite the cold weather, Macedonian citizens took to the streets once again, rallying in front of the Parliament to raise their voice against the Tirana platform. According to organizers, Thursday’s rally anticipates Friday’s massive protest, when crucial decisions regarding their activities are to be announced.
This has been the 53 day in a row as the supporters of the Civic Initiative for Joint Macedonia have been rallying for protection of the Constitution, and preservation of the integrity and sovereignty of the country.
On April 13, Albania’s ruling Socialist Party employed a new lobbyist in the United States, increasing the number of “foreign agents” representing Albanian interests registered with the US Justice Department to six.
The contract obliges the party to pay to US lobby firm Ballard Partners 20,000 US dollars a month for 12 months, making a total of 240,000 dollars - equal to about 225,000 euros.
The hefty sum is disproportionate compared to the declared annual budget of the Socialist Party in Albania.
For the 2016 fiscal year, the party declared a revenue of 637,000 euros and expenditure of 540,000 euros.
SKOPJE (Macedonia), April 27 (SeeNews) - Protesters supporting former prime minister and conservative party leader Nikola Gruevski broke into Macedonia's parliament following the election of ethnic Albanian Talat Xhaferi for parliament speaker, videos published by local media showed on Thursday night.
According to local broadcaster Alsat-M, opposition SDSM leader Zoran Zaev and Ziadin Sela, leader of Movement for Reforms PDSH, were lightly injured in the attack.
Macedonia has been locked in a political crisis since January 2015, when Zaev accused the coalition government led by VMRO-DPMNE of corruption, illegal wiretapping of more than 20,000 people and covering-up a murder. Early elections held in December as part of an EU-brokered deal have failed resolve the crisis and no government has been formed so far.
Macedonian president Gjorgji Ivanov can't catch a break from an endless supply of Soros bots, some of which are still (somehow) part of foreign Governments. Such is the case with United States Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Hoyt Brian Yee, member of Nuland's neocon cabal.
He will pay a visit to Macedonia on May 1, says the U.S. Embassy in Skopje.
"Deputy Assistant Secretary Yee will travel to Macedonia on May 1 to engage political leaders on the status of government formation, bilateral relations, and reforms needed for Euro-Atlantic integration", the Embassy says in a press release.
Hoyt Yee is very much involved in the Macedonian coup since day 1. His arrival was expected, particularly after two Soros puppets Karl Bildt and Johannes Hahn were denied a meeting with Ivanov.
Soros is a nazi-colaborator, criminal convict.
Why do you wish to suggest that attacking him is an attack against Jews ?
Do you consider they are all like him ? I don't.

When an occupying force invades your homeland and gives you the choice between collaboration and death, you will be in a position to judge him.
I spent yesterday evening in the company of a man whose grandfather spent much of the Holocaust dressed in a Nazi uniform. The difference between him and George Soros, is that he used that uniform as a disguise in order to find Jewish refugees and lead them to shelter. And that difference is a profound one. It is the difference between a perpetrator and a rescuer. Between a collaborator and a hero.
Soros did not wear a Nazi uniform, but he might as well have, because he aided in the persecution of the Jews of Europe, without compassion, without guilt and without regret. Various excuses have been made for his actions, and none of them hold the least bit of water.

Because I don't see you attacking other ethnic groups for their role in world affairs. You don't mind Russians interfering in other nations' elections, but if a Jew funds pro-democracy NGOs in an authoritarian state, you publish all the rumors and black propaganda that the fascists proclaim.
But Soros is never held to the standards of the people he wages war on. Soros destroys the savings of British pensioners, while using the money to fund left wing groups which claim to care about the plight of the poor.

Yes, I do. Most Jews favor civil rights and the rule of law It comes from being on the receiving end of thousands of years of prosecution. Please stop repeating lies about George Soros. He is hated because he teaches former Soviet thralls about democracy, and defends human rights with his foundations.
Now left wing groups which promote Anti-Semitism are accusing Soros critics of being Anti-Semitic. To them it's just a word. Another weapon they can use to promote their agenda. To us however it's not just a word. It's a reality. It's a reality that Jews have been living with for a very long time now.
For thousands of years, the Jewish people have survived persecution, outlived genocide, and every form of oppression under the sun. And during all that time, there have been Jewish survivors and heroes, and collaborators as well. The upcoming holiday of Chanukah is the story of Jews who refused to collaborate. On the other hand, the story of Soros is the story of those who brought pigs on altars. Who hated their Jewishness and eagerly sought to join with the oppressors. Soros is only one of that number. But it is not the collaborators or the traitors who continue on. They die and turn to dust. Their malice may be great and the harm they cause terrible, but like all mortals, they still perish and pass away.
Do you understand now why Soros intereference is nefarious since it spurs protest of that kind ?
“What we are seeing in Macedonia is the result of a series of external interventions and clearly indicates the dangers involved if the life of a country is influenced from outside” Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said on Friday with regard to the protests in Skopje and the attack on the country’s Parliament Building.
“However, during the past three years there have been a series of major interventions in Macedonia’s internal affairs. The embassies of countries thousands of miles away dictated the date of elections, organisations linked to George Soros financed anti-government drives and minority parties were given orders by a neighbouring country”, Mr. Szijjártó explained, adding that the result of all this is saddening: instability, chaos and violence.
“Macedonia’s example clearly indicates the dangers involved if the life of a country is influenced from outside”, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade stressed.
