  • [01] Papandreou: Gov't has 'abandoned farmers'

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Sunday charged that the "government has disappointed the people", during a speech in a western Peloponnese township he visited as part of a tour of the region.

    Papandreou, who began a two-day tour of Ilia prefecture on Saturday, told residents of Havari that prior to the general elections of March 2004, New Democracy (ND) party "promised a lot," adding that "the people believed that it would offer more."

    "Instead of this, ND abandoned farmers, all the measures it has taken are against the farmers and its permanent concern is to defame PASOK's work, to do nothing itself, but only to help the few and wealthy," he told a crowd of supporters.

    Papandreou charged that Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis is "promoting a model of cheap labour, in contrast to the level of prosperity Greeks attained in the previous years."

    [02] Anniversary of Messolonghi Exodus celebrated

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Sunday attended events marking the 180th anniversary of the Messolonghi Exodus, one of the milestone chapters of 1821 Greek War of Independence.

    On the occasion, President Papoulias was declared honorary citizen of Messolonghi during a special ceremony.

    In his address, Papoulias noted that "anniversaries are not only days of jubilation, parades and celebratory events, they are at the same moments in which we should learn history's lessons ... let us allow these immortal memories to inspire our continuous struggles for a better tomorrow."
