The presence of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in New York marking the occasion of the 73rd UN General Assembly meeting has caused a stir amongst the Greek community who are strongly against the "Prespa Agreement" allowing FYROM to change their name to "North Macedonia."

“Alexis Tsipras is not welcome in New York,” is one of the phrases placed on hundreds of posters and flyers that were distributed by members of the Greek community in the areas of Astoria, Queens and Long Island, which have a huge Greek community and presence. Posters were placed in busy metro stations, in the central square, churches, outside cafes, clubs, and parks, also stating “You Can’t Change History” and “We don’t forget.”

The US Pan-Macedonian Union held protests against Tsipras and Kotzias signing the “Prespes Agreement” at Times Square and rallied outside the General Consulate of Greece in New York.
