The preamble of the revised constitution of the (FY)RoM, styled as intro note, reads:

"Taking as the points of departure the historical, cultural, spiritual and statehood heritage of the Macedonian people and their struggle over centuries for national and social freedom as well as for the creation of their own state, and particularly the traditions of statehood and legality of the Krushevo Republic and the historic decisions of the Anti-Fascist Assembly of the People's Liberation of Macedonia, together with the constitutional and legal continuity of the Macedonian state as a sovereign republic within Federal Yugoslavia and the freely manifested will of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia in the referendum of September 8th, 1991, as well as the historical fact that Macedonia is established as a national state of the Macedonian people, in which full equality as citizens and permanent co-existence with the Macedonian people is provided for Albanians, Turks, Vlachs, Romanies and other nationalities living in the Republic of Macedonia, and intent on:..."

It is self-evident that the country claiming to be the ‘Republic of Macedonia’ clearly states in its constitution that all the peoples, but the Slav Makedonci, living either in Vardar Macedonia, the territory of the country, as well as in Greek and Bulgarian Macedonia are NON-Macedonian people, on the basis that they are not Slav Makedonci.

This statement is evidently provocative, discriminating, racist and therefore unacceptable. It should be mentioned that the Slav Makedonci account for 60% of the population in Vardar Macedonia and for a minority of 20-30% of the whole population of the geographic region of Macedonia. Yet the ruling elite at Skopje maintain that all these people are NOT Macedonian. An analogous case would be if a Scandinavian country incorporated a statement in its constitution claiming that only a fraction of its population is Scandinavian while the rest is non-Scandinavian; also, that most of the peoples of all the other Scandinavian countries are also non-Scandinavians. Or if a European country would incorporate a statement in its constitution claiming that only a fraction of its population is European while the rest is non-European; also, that most of the peoples of all the other European countries are also non-Europeans.

The risks of accepting such a defiance of basic human rights are high and imminent. If the Skopje government does not modify this controversial and unsupported statement, more and more Slav Makedonci extremists will push increasing numbers of reasonable and moderate Slav Makedonci towards radical and intolerable views of the other Macedonian peoples, which according to them are ‘non-Macedonians’. But there is a possibility that the government at Skopje is already run by such fanatics. This is unfortunately supported by a number of incidents after 2000. The insurgency of the Macedonian Albanians, which could have developed into a full-scale internal conflict in Vardar Macedonia, should NATO and EU hadn’t intervened militarily. The large-scale rigging of the recent polls in Vardar Macedonia which took place only in the districts of ethnic Albanians. The attempted coup of president Cervenkovski to forcibly change the name FYROM by which the UN refers to the statelet with capital at Skopje, with the complicity of the chairman (also a Slav Makedonci) of the General Assembly.

It is in effect imperative that the international community takes measures to break the arrogance of the Skopje ruling elite that incorporated within a constitution this unacceptable discrimination of the Macedonian peoples.
