  • [01] Papandreou visits Piraeus

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Friday visited the port city of Piraeus, in the framework of a campaign to bring the party closer to the people.

    Papandreou met with Piraeus prefect Yannis Michas and Mayor Panagiotis Fasoulas, before taking a walk through the city's central market, where he spoke with consumers and merchants.

    In a statement afterwards, Papandreou said that he was, and would continue to be, at the side of the people, whom he said were suffering today due to the high cost of living, the impunity of the cartels "which are protected by the New Democracy government", and "when they see, in the country's political life, that no only do we not respect their money, but that there is also mismanagement and corruption".

    Papandreou said he did not, and would not, tolerate this situation, adding that he would fight to strike a blow against everyone to blame with respect to the high cost of living and the cartels, or had anything to do with corruption and black money.

    He said that, contrary with prime minister Costas Karamanlis, "I will fight to clean up the country and for the political life to finally deal with the real problems faced by the people, with the high cost of living, with social policy, with health, education, and the needs of the Greek citizen".

    [02] Exhibition "History Lost"

    The multimedia exhibition entitled "History Lost", focusing on the illicit trade in antiquities and the impact of antiquities' theft on culture, will travel to Dublin at the end of the month, following display in Trieste and Lisbon. The exhibition, hosted by the Hellenic Foundation for Culture (HF), and the Sixth World Archaeological Congress, will run in Dublin between June 29 and July 3. Professor Lord Renfrew of Kaimsthorn, FBA, Chair of the British School at Athens, will open the exhibition on July 1. The travelling exhibition "History Lost" was presented last winter at the National Museum of Archaeology in Lisbon after its successful showing in Trieste, organised by the HFC within the context of Greece's efforts to secure the repatriation of illegally exported ancient artifacts. The exhibition has been enriched by copies of finds that have been returned to Greece and Cyprus in recent years after being claimed (the Aidonia Treasure, a marble head of Dionysos from Corinth, the Kanakaria mosaics from Cyprus, among others). The exhibition marked great success in Nicosia, Athens and Ancient Nemea (2006) as well as in Trieste (2007) and Lisbon (2008). It was created by Anemon productions in collaboration with the Illicit Antiquities Research Centre of Cambridge University, the Cyprus Department of Antiquities, the 37th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities in Corinth and the Department of Cultural Technology and Communication - University of the Aegean, supported by the "Culture 2000" EU programme.
