"Der Makedonier" heute im Europäischen Parlament
Mittwoch, April 06, 2016 Neu , News
Die Europäische Freie Allianz organisiert heute um 12:30Uhr eine Aufführung der Dokumentation "Der Makedonier" von Petro Aleksovski aus Polen. In der Doku machte sich Petro auf um seine Herkunft im heutigem Nordgriechenland zu suchen, von dort wurde einst seine Familie nach Polen vertrieben. Vertrieben aufgrund ihrer nicht griechischen Herkunft.
Bis heute ist die ethnisch makedonische Minderheit in Griechenland nicht anerkannt, neben andere Minderheiten die alle das gleiche Schicksal teilen. Eine Debatte zu dem Thema soll nach der Aufführung folgen.
Europe's shame. Unrecognised minorities in Greece
EFA organizes film screening and debate on the Macedonians in Greece.
The European Free Alliance together with its MEP Josep Maria Terricabras and Silesian MEP Marek Plura (EPP) organise the screening of the movie "Macedonian" in the European Parliament on April 6th.
It is the tragic story of the so-called "Detsa Begalci", the Macedonian refugee children who fled Greece during the Civil War (1946-49) and were dispersed throughout several countries of the former "Eastern Block". Some 35.000 children in total left Greece back then and 3.000 of them found shelter in Silesia, where they were taken care of by the Silesian population.These children were allowed to return to their birth places only if they would declare they were Greeks, something that most of them refused to do, thus remaining in permanent exile.
A debate will be held after the screening, featuring the director of the film and representatives of EFA members EFA Rainbow and Ruch Autonomii Slaska.
The event comes only a few days after the Greek authorities refused entry to Greece to Macedonians from the Republic of Macedonia and Albania who were planning to attend the annual Gala of the Macedonian newspaper "Nova Zora" in Voden/Edessa, Greece. Greek authorities pursue a racist policy for decades now by blacklisting the refugee children and other Macedonians abroad who defend the rights of the Macedonian minority in Greece. It is a disgrace for the European Union that has to end immediately.

Zitat von Makedonec do Koska
Was wurde eigentlich aus... Ilco Naumoski?
Er war einer der temperamentvollsten Spieler die man in den letzten Jahren in der Bundesliga bewundern durfte. Doch was macht Ilco Naumoski aktuell?
Am 29. Juli 1983 wurde Ilco Naumoski in Prilep in Mazedonien geboren. Bereits sehr jung zog Naumoski nach Österreich und begann im Alter von zehn Jahren für den ASC Korneuburg zu spielen. Wenig später folgte der Wechsel zum SK Rapid Wien. Dort verbrachte Naumoski einige Jahre seiner Jugend. Im Jahr 2000 wechselte er zum SV Stockerau. Nach einem Jahr beim niederösterreichischen Club zog es ihn ins Burgenland zu ASKÖ Klingenbach. Dort spielte er in der Regionalliga und wurde mit 18 Jahren Torschützenkönig in der Regionalliga Ost.
The HULK: Alex Volkanovski Australian Macedonian MMA champion
Originally from Shellharbour a surf side village on the east coast of New South Wales Australia, Alex began his combat sports journey as an amateur wrestler securing an Australian title at an early age. He used these skills to develop into a highly skilled and respected rugby league player before making the transition back to the combat sports arena where he had a 4-0 amateur mma career stopping all four opponents early in the first round. In fact, Alex's entire amateur career lasted less than the equivalent of one professional mixed martial arts round.

19 days ago Sports
Macedonian Olympic Committee, with the help of the US Olympic Committee, provided for swimming hopeful Anastasija Bogdanovski to attend a month of training in Colorado Springs, together with some of the top American swimmers. Bogdanovski is trying to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Coach Eric Posegy will be working with Bogdanovski to help her be in peak shape for the Olympics. Bogdanovski also said that she is postponing the start of her medical studies in Baltimore for a year and her participation at the European swimming championship in London in order to be best positioned to qualify for the Olympics.
Auf Deutsch heisst es Mazedonier und nicht Makedonier. Man kann uns jetzige Mazedonier mit den antiken griechischen Makedonen, nicht gleichsetzen. Warum müsst ihr orthodoxen Slawen überall und alle provozieren? Wir heissen hier MAZEDONIER, und das Land heisst auf deutsch MAZEDONIEN.
Vlatko Stefanovski – Macedonia’s musical ambassador
Montag, Mai 23, 2016 Rock/Alternativ
Mention the name Vlatko Stefanovski to Sanja Neloska, an administrator in a tourist agency in Ohrid, south-west Macedonia, and her reaction is immediate: “He’s our country’s greatest ambassador,” she replies, delighted that a foreigner even knows the name.
The response is typical from any native of the southern Slavic state, such is the near-universal, near-reverential feeling towards the guitarist-singer-songwriter by his compatriots of all age groups.
Stefanovski burst onto the Yugoslav music scene in 1978 – a full decade before Neloska herself was born – as lead guitarist in the fusion-jazz-rock band Leb-i-Sol (it means Bread and Salt in the vernacular) with an eponymous first album. “We were like an energetic bomb, like on nuclear power. Wherever we played, we had huge, huge success everywhere,” Stefanovski tells bne IntelliNews in an interview, his voice today still reflecting the excitement and wonderment of those early times.
“Those were unconscious years, you know, when you are in your teenage years, you don’t know what’s happening, you are run by hormones, you are developing fast. In high school, I already knew – I thought of myself as the best guitar player in Skopje!”
In truth, he very possibly was. Born in 1957 in Prilep, a town in the west-central region of the then Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Stefanovski was largely raised in the capital Skopje: while his parents spent most of their time working in theatre, he spent most of his listening to his brother’s record collection. “Goran, my older brother – he’s now a playwright, a professor of drama – he’s the Woodstock generation: he was the one who showed me the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Hendrix, Cream. I was just soaking it up,” he recalls.
But the younger sibling was not content to merely listen. “I said, I wanna do that. It’s more fun playing than listening! Definitely!”
Stefanovksi strummed his first chords on his brother’s acoustic instrument, only to hanker for more. “I was dreaming of an electric guitar and amplifier. So I was talking to my parents every day. Oh man, I need an electric guitar and amplifier. Every day!” The persistence – or nagging – paid off: the parents coughed up, and the young Stefanovski was quickly hard at work, imitating the licks of his Western guitar heroes.
Fanfare for the Common Yugoslav
In 1976, with three “classmates and neighbours”, Stefanovksi formed Leb i Sol, and with two LPs released on the Serbian PGP-RTB label, they were hot material across Yugoslavia within two years. “We were a bit like Emerson, Lake and Palmer: beneath the complicated stuff, like improvisations based on Macedonian folk, we also had a couple of pop tunes that were huge hits,” Stefanovski recalls fondly.
It was pretty much any young rocker’s dream, playing arenas with up to 5,000 in attendance and a tour of the US in support of a Yugoslav theatre group – it didn’t get much better than this for most 20-something guitarists, let alone one from eastern Europe.
Somewhere in it all, Stefanovski even leveraged his musical fame to the good during his 12-month national service in the JNA, the Yugoslav National Army – a fearsome obligation that broke many a budding rock band of the day. Unusually, he was based in Stip, close to home (“I was famous. I knew some generals”), although even the privileged guitarist could not escape the first weeks of basic training. “Oh, man, that was still a heavy experience, mentally and spiritually,” he says, “There was no mercy. I wanted to die.”
Yet, like many who survived the ordeal, three decades on he values the experience. “I learned some very important things: how to clean your shoes, how to get up at five in the morning. In a way I learned discipline, and in creativity there is a certain amount of discipline. Without that, you cannot do nothing.”
Once free and back with Leb i Sol, Stefanovski found the band, like the Yugoslav Federation, was from the mid-1980s beginning to show signs of strain. “Egos, problems. Musicians, they think they are all the best. We behaved like rock stars. I had four roadies. But after a couple [more] years, I said, let’s face it, we were losing money. Buses, trucks on tour – these things are expensive. I’m more practical now.”
The group finally split up in 1995 (they have since reformed, under a different line-up), with Stefanovski, like many of his musical heroes in the West, shunning the pop-star role to develop more meaningful musical pursuits – which for him translates into working with an eclectic range of collaborators, from the London Symphony Orchestra to virtuoso guitarists like the Australian Tommy Emannuel and the Netherlands-born Roma Stochelo Rosenberg, with whom he performs at times as the “Kings of Strings”.
“I’ve played around the world, but I’ve never wanted to fight or struggle for worldwide fame. I was not crazy about success: I’m still crazy about playing the guitar, not about being on the covers of magazines,” he says. But is this, perhaps, only with hindsight, having been there and done that?
Either way, he is still keeping fans like Sanja Neloska and winning over new ones. “Ever since I became aware about things, I’m now 28, I’ve known about Vlatko’s music. Nobody ever told me to listen… His music, talent – it has true, real values… making our country known in foreign places for good and quality things,” she says. “I’m very happy that we [in Macedonia], as a small country, have such important persons as Vlatko that we can be very proud of.”
