Macedonia: Greek flags burn as thousands protest name change in Skopje

Thousands took to the streets of Skopje on Tuesday to protest against a possible change to the Macedonia’s name, amid talks to resolve a dispute with Greece. The protest started in front of the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe) offices and ended in front of the Macedonian parliament. Protesters burned the Greek and the Albanian flags while chanting ‘Macedonia’ and... Еще carried signs demanding ‘one Macedonian state’. Many see the name 'Macedonia' as posing a threat to the Greek state since it implies a territorial claim over the eponymous region of northern Greece.
