  • [01] Papandreou at ISTAME event

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou on Sunday expressed his hope for a dialogue among "progressive parties" in the country, during an address at a series of events organised by the PASOK-affiliated ISTAME think tank and PASOK's Euro-parliamentary group.The events marked the 40th anniversary of a students' and workers' uprising in Paris in May 1968.

    Papandreou cited the presence of former Synaspismos leftist party leader Nikos Constantopoulos, who attended a round-table discussion on the issue leftist parties' future. PASOK's leader said the need for cooperation is necessary, and even if some political forces are against it, the Greek people will demand it.

    "May 1968's basic message was that all together we can change the world," he noted, adding that "our main strength is democratic procedures and the citizens. People understand our efforts to change Greece."

    [02] Alexandria Patriarch in S.Africa

    Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodoros II, who is paying an official visit to South Africa, celebrated on Sunday together with the ethnic Greek community the 100th anniversary of the community's founding in Johannesburg, and the 80-year anniversary of the establishment of the foundation of the local Metropolis.

    A religious service was held at Aghios (St.) Constantine Cathedral, the first Greek Orthodox Church founded in the South African metropolis.

    During his address at a reception in his honor, the Patriarch pointed at the major importance of expatriates' struggle to preserve their heritage, considering the fact they live thousand of miles away from their homeland.
