United Macedonian Diaspora
Dear Friend,

Macedonia's under pressure from all sides. Again Macedonia was not invited to join NATO at this weekend's Lisbon Summit. Read Point 14 of NATO Lisbon Declaration here.

You've heard about the dangers. And I know you want to do something to help.

That's why I'm inviting you today to send a secure online donation to empower the United Macedonian Diaspora to fight back against all the forces hell-bent on driving Macedonia right off a cliff.

Here's the situation in a nutshell:

* On one side, Greece and its allies are blocking Macedonia's membership in NATO and the European Union until Macedonia changes its name and compromises on its identity and language. You saw how the Greek diplomatic service managed to get the Macedonian language erased at the United Nations last weekend. But we prevailed and the UN Secretary-General apologized for this grave insult to our people. UMD's message to the international community - Macedonia will NEVER change its name, identity, and language!

* On the other, Bulgaria's anti-Macedonian government is increasing its efforts in Brussels and Washington, D.C. against Macedonia. Read more here.

* And within Macedonia, according to a recent Gallup poll, 51% of Albanians living in Macedonia support the idea of forming a "Greater Albania."

These dangers are real and urgent.

Decisions may be only days away.

That's why it's so vital that you send your secure online donation today so we can put your contribution to work right away fighting the many enemies of the Macedonian Cause in Washington, D.C., Brussels, Canberra, Ottawa, and Paris among other places.

Your contribution, large or small, allows the UMD, a true global advocacy organization that relies on community donors, to be your voice in pressing the international community to:

* Stand up for truth, and against Greece's and Bulgaria's outright lies.

* Stand up for full civil rights of Macedonians living in Southeast Europe.

* Stand up for justice, and against the sacrifice of Macedonian rights.

* Stand up against foreign pressure.

* Stand up for your right to self-identify as Macedonian.

* Guarantee the territorial integrity of Macedonia.

Your secure online donation of $250, $100, $50, or even $15 is needed right away to lift the pressure from Macedonia and pave the way toward a real and lasting peace based on enduring principles. Please consider also making a monthly donation!

Please give today as generously as you can. If you would like to send a donation by mail, I have included UMD's postal addresses in Australia, Canada, and the United States below for your convenience. All donations are tax-deductible in Canada and the United States.


Stojan Nikolov
Chairman of the Board
