Macedonia celebrates the 76th anniversary of the Uprising of the Macedonian people against fascism. The uprising originated in central Macedonian town of Prilep and Kumanovo, a mere 9 miles from the Serbian border. The public holiday is marked by ceremonies across Macedonia where politicians, and citizens alike, lay wreathes to pay respects to those who fought for the Macedonian cause. It falls only four days before  the upcoming local elections.  (MIA)
