President Stevo Pendarovski, on the occasion of October 11 – the Day of the People’s Uprising, sent a congratulation note to the citizens of the Republic of North Macedonia.
Dear fellow citizens,
Congratulations on October 11 – the Day of the People’s Uprising.
Today, after 81 years since the beginning of the anti-fascist struggle that brought us freedom and the Macedonian state, we are facing, together with all of humanity, new trials. In addition to all the health, economic, security and energy problems, we live with a deep division in the Macedonian society. Just as leftists and rightists, Macedonians and members of other nationalities, peasants, workers, guilds and wealthy people stood behind the liberation flag, peasants, workers, guilds and wealthy people, we need to come together now and face the problems together.
Let October 11 and the anti-fascist struggle be our inspiration for overcoming divisions and national reconciliation through mutual respect. May we leave personal interests and vanities aside and work for the common good, blessed with the opportunity to live in freedom and peace, in our own country.
Many happy returns to this holiday!
