    A series of Greek Unions, the Civil Servants’ Confederation (ADEDI), the Panhellenic Pharmaceutical Association (PFS), the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE), the Athens Labour Centre (EKA) and the Pharmaceutical Association of Attica, announced a general strike on Wednesday, April 8 as well as demonstrations on March 30 and April 1. In Particular, today’s meeting for coordination, participation and preparation of actions for the following two weeks, the unions decided to:

    • Organize a protest rally outside Greece’s Parliament on Sunday, March 30, the day of voting for the new measures agreed between the troika and the Greek coalition government, demanding their withdrawal.
    • Organize a Complaint Demonstration on the EU policy on Tuesday, April 1, at Klafthmonos square, a day on which ECOFIN’s meeting will take place and decisions are expected to take a turn for the worst for worker’s rights.
    • Organize a general strike on Wednesday, April 9.

      A man has to wonder – why the heck these fake “Greex” strike for?! When they never accomplished anything in their whole fake century long existence…

      Hey Skopian, how’s this for a reality check? Why are you so ashamed of your Slavic Bulgarian roots? Here is what one of your key national heroes Goce Delchev had to say about the Skopians who pretend to be Macedonians.

      Goce Delchev was a key leader in the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO), a paramilitary organization active in the Ottoman territories, in Europe at the end of the 19th, and the beginning of the 20th century.

      The below is a letter from Goce Delchev to Nikola Maleshevski in which he refers to himself as a Bulgarian.

      “I have received all letters which were sent by or through you. May the dissents and cleavages not frighten you. It is really a pity, but what can we possibly do when WE OURSELVES ARE BULGARIANS and all suffer from the same disease! If this disease had not existed in our forefathers who passed it on to us, we wouldnt have fallen under the ugly sceptre of the Turkish sultans.”

      Notice all the Greek leftists are nowhere to be found when Skopians come trolling this website. Greek Reporters doesn’t follow its own alleged “guidelines” when foreign ultra nationalist make racist rants about Greeks. They only complain about Greeks. (they just deleted by id because of a complaint by NON-GREEK T-nto (who claims to live in Greece) — who whines about me because I keep pointing out his treasonous support of Skopians threatening Greece)

      Treasonous cowardly leftists are at the heart of Greece’s problems. They are the ones that push for massive government spending and bureaucracy. They are the ones that support illegals. Good luck finding a leftist thats willing to criticize FYROM’s foreign apologists.

      “We are not related to the northern Greeks who produced leaders like Philip and Alexander the Great. We are a Slav people and our language is closely related to Bulgarian. There is some confusion about the identity of the people of this country.”

      “So we have essentially the entire national identity built on LIES: we are all sons of Sokrat …
      Now, the illusion can be useful for several years, or during the war, but if you hold the people in that belief for 200 years – sooner or later you’ll realise that it is not so and you’ll be depressed, nationally. You’ll become a laughing stock item, internationally.”

      “We used to speak Albanian and call ourselves Romans, but then Winckelmann, Goethe, Victor Hugo, Delacroix, they all told us: ‘No, you are Hellanikes, direct descendants of Platon and Socrat,’ and that did it…

      It’s all just a Show-business Mumbo-Jumbo! Non of these fake “Greex” will ever decide of its fake fate.

    • Leftist thugs censoring again

      To any Greeks,

      all ancient historical narratives aside, ask yourselves where are all the leftists that claim to support “human rights” …. when it comes to denouncing FYROM ultra nationalist frauds like “MAKEDONSKA AKROPOLA”. (The Guardian, NY Times, Amnesty International, HRW, etc..)

      Right before the eyes of their smug Greek hating apologists — FYROM nationalist have suddenly turned into descendents of ancient Macedonians, encourage irredentism against Greece, and attempt to casually ethnic delete Greeks — and all the weasels that supported them try to downplay it? Our *treasonous* leftist cowards can’t lift a finger in protest?

      a. Lenos Hristidis is incompetent anti-natioanlist leftist nitwit. Plenty of genetic testing has been done on modern Greeks. Our narrative is fundamentally correct. We are directly descended from ancient Greeks (albeit in purely so)

      b. Nick Dimou ridiculous suggestion that we all used to speak Albanian” is easily proven false. Only a minority of Greeks used to speak Albanian (Avritika). Greek, has been spoken in an *unbroken* chain leading back to antiquity. Modern Greek is far far closer to Koine Greek (the Greek dialect ancient Macedonians spread across their empire) than modern English is to what they frame as “old English” (which uses a Runic alphabet and completely intelligible to a modern Brit)

      That we call ourselves Romans is true — but this was not hidden from the world (like you hide your ethnic Bulgarian heritage). Wee were Greek speaking Romans whose civilization was descended from ancient Greeks (and Romans as well).

      I would also point out the the other Romans of German-speaking Holy ROMAN empire. I’m sure the modern German would be thrilled to listen to claims they are not “real” Germans.

      I’ve heard it all before Skopian.

      “Greeks have lived in Anatolia for millennia, especially along the Aegean coast. For a while, under Alexander, they dominated the land. And for all intents and purposes, the Byzantine Empire was Greek.[.] The first Ottoman census, of 1477, counted half of Constantinople’s population as Greek, and four-hundred years
      later, even after the Greek War of Independence, it was still 21 percent Greek. – David Lowenthal, “The heritage crusade and the spoils of history. (1998)

      If truth is your concern than why is it you Skopian frauds never mention that you aren’t ethnic Macedonians as you ridiculously claim? That your primarily descendants of ethnic Bulgarians? And how it is your slimy anti-Greek apologists downplay your sudden transformation into “ancient macedonians” and irredentism? (apparently threatening sovereign countries and trying to ethnicly delete Greeks is “human rights” now)

      “The history of the construction of a Macedonian national identity does not begin with Alexander the Great in the fourth century B.C. or with Saints Cyril and Methodius in the ninth century A.D. as Macedonian nationalist historians often claim”

      “Krste Misirkov, who had clearly developed a strong sense of his own personal national identity as a Macedonian and who outspokenly and unambiguously called for Macedonian linguistic and national separatism, acknowledged that a Macedonian
      national identity was a relatively recent historical development.”

      “The political and military leaders of the Slavs of Macedonia at the turn of the century seem not to have heard Misirkov’s call for a separate Macedonian national identity; they continued to identify themselves in a national sense as Bulgarians rather than Macedonians.” -(FYROM Supporter) US Anthropologist Loring Danforth, “The Macedonian Conflict: Ethnic Nationalism in a Transnational World”, Princeton Univ Press, December 1995

      “FOUR THOUSAND YEARS OF GREEK HISTORY have produced four Greek heritages, each of which has had an effect on the life of the Greeks in later stages of their history. The
      Hellenic Greeks received a heritage from the Mycenean Greeks, the Macedonian Greeks from the Hellenic, the Byzantine Greeks received on from the Macedonian Greeks, the Modern Greeks have received one heritage from the Byzantines and a second
      from the Hellenes.”

      “On November 4, 2004, two days after the re-election of President George W. Bush, his administration unilaterally recognized the “Republic of Macedonia.” This action not only abrogated geographic and historic fact, but it also has unleashed a dangerous epidemic of historical revisionism, of which the most obvious symptom is the misappropriation by the government in
      Skopje of the most famous of Macedonians, Alexander the Great.”

      LENOS HRISTIDIS is an incompetent NOBODY. He doesn’t have any creditials. He’s just an anti-nationalist obsessed leftist.

      Nick Dimou is an incompetent NOBODY. His claim we used to all speak Albanian is gibberish. (George Finlay reported only a small portion spoke Avritika). That we call ourselves Roman is true — but missing is context. In Greece and Asia minor we were GREEK SPEAKING Romans that were primarily descended from ancient Greeks (to lessor degree Romans and others) The DNA record does not lie.

      Why is it you former Yugoslavians that claim to speak for history — fail to mention there isn’t a single ethnic Macedonian in FYROM? How it is you forget to mention that most of you are direct descendents of ethnic Bulgarians?

    • Leftist thugs censoring again

      You ANTI-Macedonian Skopian frauds would know all about fake. All you do is substitute the word “BULGARIAN” with “Macedonian”. No amount of propaganda, no amount of recognition, no amount of empty historical narratives, no amount of fake tears of persecution.. will change the GREEK writing on countless ancient Macedonian artifacts.

      ……………..

      “Macedonians speak a language codified in 1946,spoken by less than two million people, and with a very slender literature. They are members of an Orthodox Church whose authority was established by a socialist political regime in 1968.They are heirs to a 1903 revolution that until the 1940s was described by almost all sources as being Bulgarian.”

      Bulgarofskis the sons of Plato and Socrates?You are having us on mate.The descendents of them are intelligent people mainly Greeks who carried on the the genes and continued to produce clever men who benefited the humanities.I can’t recall a single Bulgarophone upstart who discovered anything of benefit to others and they are incapable of cleanig even their own toilets in a very dirty Scopia.Fyronians need urgent psychiatric treatment as they suffer badly from the illusion of grandeur.
