    I see them who they identify as. There are people, like the older women in the video, that call themselves Macedonians, but there are people like my aunt who knows the language but identify as Greek. So its a personal choice. Though the people that call themselves Macedonians tend to be of an older generation.

    Are there any "Macedonian" protests in Greece?

    No. It is not easy to be a Macedonian in Greece, so protests would be difficult seeing that people are scared to even call them selves Macedonian or speak the language in public.

    This is what happens to Macedonians in Greece.

    Those crazy people in the video are from the Greek far-right organisation Hrisi Avgi.

    This could also be considered as a protest by the leader of the Rainbow party (ethnic Macedonian party in Greece), Pavlos Voskopolos.

    Watch the reaction when he starts speaking Macedonian on national television:

    Bravo Pavle!

    Yes, but weirder things have happened in Greek politics before. I think the early 90's New Democracy (middle right) actually had a coalition with the KKE (communists) so PASOK wouldn't be in power. It didn't last long.

    You have Voskopoulos that is part of a political party that promotes the ''Macedonian'' stuff, yet you say that they are scared to even call themselves such? That's condradictional.
    Plus, you post also a video from a woman, calling herself as such, again.
    If people were scared, there would be NO public videos with people showing their faces and say that they are ''Macedonian'', neither this political party would exist.

    Nird, there is no such protest, because there are not enough people to protest.And what for to protest? That's bullshit Fyrom propaganda.

    You see, once a year, there is a celebration going on in Meliti village, with all the Fyromians gathering there, plus others coming from Fyrom,too, with buses.
    There is more security by Greek police, but there is totaly happening, with no problem from Greece.
    Neither the political party has problems except the fact that.... they get no more votes than 3.000
    Yeah, the imaginary minority is THAT big!

    Well imagine if they called the party something like "Macedonians of Greece party", how would Greeks like you react? lol. Their are a small amount of people that are not afraid to show that they are Macedonian.

    Nird, there is no such protest, because there are not enough people to protest.And what for to protest? That's bullshit Fyrom propaganda.
    Could you imagine Macedonians protesting down the streets of Salonika? That would be fantastic, but once again people are too afraid, because showing your Macedonian identity has major economic and social disadvantages.

    You see, once a year, there is a celebration going on in Meliti village, with all the Fyromians gathering there, plus others coming from Fyrom,too, with buses.

    The Village is a big village populated by a Macedonian majority. The same goes with the voting, you vote for the Macedonian party and you risk economic and social disadvantages.

    Do you Greeks call Macedonians in Greece "fyromians" as well? yous are despicable.
