140 years since the birth of the legendary Macedonian hero
uted to the influence of Delchev.
They comprise of Delchev’s
public education career as a
scholar in Novo Selo (near Shtip)
and Bansko (1894-1896), and of
his involvement with revolutionary ideals, making preparations
and seeking support for the
armed uprising from the
Macedonian people.
After taking the oath of
membership of the Macedonian
Revolutionary Organization, a
meeting of significant and historical importance took place in
Stip, in November 1894, between
Delchev and Dame Gruev, the
founder of MRO. Gruev had already realized the major impact
tion of the country.
Delchev was able to recognize the influence of other Balkan
monarchies, and in particular Bulgaria (which continues in part today) and their aspirations for the
Macedonian state. The most aggressive of this Bulgarian propaganda, was a destructive fraction
called “Vrhovism”, became the
target of Delcev’s most fervent
opposition. Delchev continued to
attend district meetings all over
Macedonia and put into place a
revision of the revolutionary districts in Macedonia in 1895, by
strengthening the weaker districts, by providing contacts for a
reliable network, and by the appointing of strong district leadership of the MRO. Delcev continued his belief that any revolution
could only be fought by
Macedonian forces to protect
Macedonia from falling under any
that Delcev had had upon the
expansion of the MRO, and its
organized network throughout
Macedonia. Delchev believed
that the liberation of Macedonia
was an exclusively domestic affair, based on an internally organized uprising. Delchev’s first
venture into the interior of the
Macedonian land was in April
1895. He oversaw the establishment of local branches of the
MRO. These branches were responsible for the spirit of freedom widely among the popula-
foreign control of neighbouring
Balkan states, in particular Bulgaria.
At the First Congress of
MRO, in April of 1896, a revised
restructure of the districts was introduced, and MRO was renamed
TMORO (Secret Macedonian
Odrin Revolutionary Organization), a new Constitution and
Charter was adopted (which was
drawn up by Gotsce Delchev and
Gjorche Petrov), and an expatriate
branch of TMORO was established in Sofia. Delchev and
United Macedonians Organization of Canada is the publisher
of “Macedonian Herald” as a
voice of the Macedonians in
North America.

GOTSE DELCHEV
The Macedonian people
yearned for their own national
identity toward the end of the
19th and the early 20th and as a
result of this desire for national
autonomy the Macedonian national liberation movement
emerged. This was a direct result of the political, national,
economic and cultural oppression of the Macedonian people.
The Turkish occupation had
lasted for over 500 years leading to social, economic, administrative and legislative crisis in
Macedonia, and by the interference of other foreign states in
Macedonian affairs.
The Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (MRO)
was formed and quickly became
the established leader of the
Macedonian national liberation
and social revolution movement, struggling for national
independence and social justice. Gotse Delchev, was an extraordinary visionary and ideological leader who organized
and mobilized the MRO.
Delchev had a brief but brilliant
career and was completely dedicated to the cause of
Macedonian nationhood.
Gotse Delchev, was
born to Macedonian parents,
Nikola and Sultana Delchevi on
February 4th, 1872, in Kukush,
a town 35 km north of Salonika.
He completed his primary education in Kukush, expanded his
education by completing his
secondary education in
Salonika, with emphasis on science, literature and social studies. Delchev furthered in education in the sciences at the
Salonika Military Academy. He
read widely on Macedonian
national affairs whilst attending
the Academy. He took an active
role in politics, and joined political clubs in Salonika and
Sofia, and had close contacts
with others, especially with the
socialist and the “Lozari”
clubs in Sofia. Membership of
these political organisations
contributed to the formation of
his revolutionary ideals.
Gotse Delchev’s membership in the MRO was the
most significant change in the
course of in the history of the
Macedonian national liberation
movement. While Delcev’s involvement with the MRO was
short, the years between 1894
and 1903 represent the efficient
revolutionary sequence of the
MRO, and was directly attrib-

Petrov became the first representatives of the expatriate
branch, and assumed total responsibility in respect of material supplies, including
weapons, ammunition, revolutionary literature, and other
publications. Delchev’s correspondence with the TMORO
members covers extensive
data on supplies, transport
and storage of weapons and
ammunition in Macedonia.
Delchev beleived in the independent production of weapons, which resulted in the
construction of a bomb manufacturing plant in the
Osogovo Mountains.
The inclusion of the
rural areas into the TMORO
resulted in the expansion of
the organization and the obvious increase in its membership, while setting the foundation for the military power
of the organization. Goce
Delchev was appointed as its
military advisor. The clandestine character of the TMORO
ended as a result of the Vinica
Affair in November 1897,
when domestic and world
opinion was exposed to the
TMORO’s existence and extent. The unity of the TMORO
was subject to the adverse infiltration of the Vrhovism fraction into the TMORO, followed by frequent subversions. These subversions led
to the reorganized structure of
some districts, and this was
implemented by Delchev during 1900-1902.
When was the uprising in Macedonia to take
place? Delchev and his followers believed that a premature uprising could fail and he
regarding this as the ultimate
crime a leader can inflict upon
a nation and its history. On his
way to the Congress in Ser
(now in Greece), held at
Lovchan Grove of Ali Botush,
Delchev stopped at the village
of Banica on the 4th of May
1903. Gotse Delchev found
himself betrayed and surrounded, and he was shot
dead. His tragic death cancelled many of his visions that
he had planned for that period
of the Macedonian history.
The death of Delchev made
headline news in Turkey and
Bulgaria. Delchev was only 31
when he died and was the
most dynamic personality of
the Macedonian revolutionary and national liberation
movement.
Delchev will be remembered for his famous quote: “I
understand the world solely
as a field for cultural compe-
tition among nations”.
Even though Delchev
strongly resisted the premature
uprising, its date of the uprising
was determined at the Smilevo
Congress. The uprising was to
start on August 2, 1903, the orthodox Christian holiday of St.
Elijah (Ilinden). This uprising
would hence be known as the
Iliden Uprising (Ilindensko
Vostanie) and involved the entire
Macedonian people, and the
most intense actions took place
in the liberation of Neveska,
Klisura and Krushevo, where the
Krushevo Republic was proclaimed by its president Nikola
Karev.
The Ilinden traditions reemerged during the National Liberation War (NOV) in Macedonia.
Their climax occurred at the Second Ilinden, when the First Assembly of ASNOM took place on
August 2, 1944.
The remains of Gotse
Delchev were returned to
Macedonia on 10 October 1946
after an agreement was reached
between the government of
Macedonia and the Association
of the Macedonian Fraternities in
Bulgaria. The following day, they
were solemnly embedded into a
marble tomb in grounds of the
Holy Saviour Church (Sv. Spas)
in Skopje.
Gotse Delchev’s effort
epitomises the character of the
proud Macedonian nation. The
Macedonian people consider
Delcev a national hero, in admiration of his history-making personality, tenacity, and his
unserving belief in Macedonian
national autonomy. Delchev’s aspirations for an autonomous state
became reality in 1991 when
Macedonia broke away from the
Yugoslav Federation. It is interesting to note that the 1991
Macedonian breakaway from the
Yugoslav Federation was
achieved without armed uprising
or bloodshed. Other former
Yugoslav Federation members
have not fared so well, and have
all endured some degree of armed
conflict to achieve their independence.

FORTH, YET CHAMPIONS
The Macedonian National Basketball team was
a sensation at the European Championships in
Riga, Latvia. As the Macedonian team was
victorious against traditionally much stronger
teams, the spectators from Macedonia were
arriving daily to cheer our heroes.
While the Macedonian National Basketball team made us
all proud at the Championship, by placing forth in Europe,
the players were proud of all Macedonians that greeted
them at the Airport “Alexander the Great”, along the road
to Skopje as well as the welcoming crowd at the city square
“Macedonia”.
