  • [01] Noted songwriter, performer Danai Stratigopoulou dies

    Danai Stratigopoulou, a singer, musician, prolific songwriter as well as a onetime folklore professor of Greek at Santiago University in Chile, died on Sunday at the age of 96.

    Stratigopoulou, who was born in Athens in 1913 and raised in France, was also a noted translator, namely, of Greek demotic songs into Spanish and poems by Pablo Nerouda into Greek.

    Stratigopoulou will be buried at the First Athens Cemetery at noon on Wednesday.

    [02] Bisky addresses Euro Left con'f

    Party of the European Left president Lothar Bisky addressed the European political grouping's extraordinary conference in Athens on Saturday, organised by the Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) party, where he extended his solidarity to those who demonstrated following the death of pupil Alexandros Grigoropoulos last month, while at the same time sternly condemning the violence of hooded vandals.

    Bisky said that the young people's uprising in Greece clearly showed the social repercussions of the economic crisis of neo-liberal policy, adding that the neo-liberal parties have no effective model to present and the only model in which neo-liberal state authority invests in the face of uprisings is suppression.

    At the same conference, Synaspismos party leader Alexis Tsipras outlined his party's strategy concerning young people's problems.

    Addressing the conference, Tsipras said "we were the only political force to speak of an uprising from the very first moment. We became the target of the entire political system."

    "Here in Greece we heard many interpretations about the uprising of youth" and assured that the party will not back down from young people's right to mass and militant peaceful protest, to seek a future that will not be uninsured and insecure employment, to free state-controlled and dignified education and to defend democracy and social rights from arbitrariness and suppression.

    Referring to the economic crisis, Tsipras said that the crisis is due to the system, because it was created by the elements that compose the nucleus of the neo-liberal sample.
