  • [01] Events ahead of Polytechnic uprising anniversary

    Events commemorating the 32rd anniversary of a students' uprising at the Athens Polytechnic, the most significant protest against a seven-year dictatorship that ruled Greece between 1967-1974, continued on Wednesday, a day before a customary protest march is set to take place through central Athens.

    Among others, members of New Democracy's affiliated youth group, ONNED, laid a wreath at the university on Wednesday. In Thessaloniki, meanwhile, several groups and political officials laid wreaths at a monument at the city's polytechnic dedicated to the uprising.

    [02] Parliament eats chicken to boost poultry industry

    A main course of Greek chicken was served up during a dinner given in Parliament on Wednesday, in a bid to boost the public's confidence in poultry products after the avian flu scare that damaged the Greek poultry industry's prospects.

    The dinner was held in Parliament's restaurant and organised by the head of the Parliamentary Committee for Social Affairs Panagiotis Adraktas, with members of Parliament's presidency, ministers and MPs on the guest list.

    Diners included Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas, Parliament vice-president Yiannis Tragakis, Deputy Finance Minister Petros Doukas, Deputy Health Minister Athanassios Yiannopoulos, Deputy Agricultural Development Minister Alekos Kontos, former agriculture minister Evangelos Argyris, MP Apostolos Stavrou representing ruling New Democracy's parliamentary group and a number of MPs, representatives of agricultural groups and poultry farmers.
