Dear friends and supporters,
It’s been 15 years of hard work and struggle for human rights and freedoms, unwavering support for peace and tolerance, arms control, democracy, freedom of speech and media, solidarity, rule of law, and free elections.
Reporters Without Borders, n-ost and Civil-Center for Freedom demand the immediate release of Macedonian journalist Tomislav Kezarovski. Although Kezarovski was released from his questionable imprisonment last year after a few months, he is right now under house-arrest. There will be an appeal verdict on Friday, October 24, which could lead to Kezarovski`s renewed imprisonment.
CIVIL and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung organize a discussion on Freedom of Speech and Media in Macedonia: Challenges and Solutions on Wednesday, October 15 at GEM Club (Skopje Old Town), beginning at 11:30 AM.
Special guest at this event is Mr. Christian Mihr, Executive Director of the Reporters Without Borders Germany who will present findings and standpoints on this topic.
We appeal to all citizens of the Republic of Macedonia to put an immediate end of hate speech on social networks and to abstain from ethnically motivated violence and vandalism.
Parents must talk to their children and influence them not to engage in bullying and vandalism during civil protests.
Escalation of ethnic tensions in the country is a consequence of wrong policies and practices of the ruling parties. Therefore, we demand from them, VMRO-DPMNE and DUI, to take immediate measures to prevent violence and defuse tensions that could lead to security crisis.
