Our patriotism will be celebrated by future generations, but only if we give them more reasons for it, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in his speech at the central event for the celebration of the holiday October 11 – Uprising Day, which took place in front of the Memorial of the liberators of Skopje, in the courtyard of the Government.

Celebrating on great dates and honoring all our predecessors is embedded in the statehood and freedom of Macedonia, said Zaev, and is only a small part of our duty towards the worthy past, stressing that patriotism does not end there.

“Our patriotism will be celebrated by future generations, but only if we give them more reasons for it, our generation’s reasons and of the Partisans are both an anti-fascist and national liberation struggle. 76 years ago our fellow citizens in Prilep and Kumanovo reacted and took action to mark the beginning of the uprising of the Macedonian people and all other citizens in Macedonia, against the fascist occupier and it was the beginning of the final process in the inclusion of the Macedonian state on the map of the peoples of the world” said Zaev.
