SCRIPT
Members of various religious and Macedonian nationalist groups attended a church service and marched through the Macedonian capital of Skopje on Wednesday, to mark the 126th anniversary of the foundation of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organisation (IMRO).
The Demonstrators can be seen lighting candles and attending the service at St. Clement church, before carrying out their march through Skopje.
IMRO was founding in 1893, and was a revolutionary nationalist organisation that aimed for liberation and independence of Macedonia and other regions from the Ottoman Empire.
