  • [01] The lighthouse at the 'End of the World'

    The lighthouse on Cape Tenaro, southern Peloponnese has been totally restored and renovated by the Ekaterini Laskaridis Foundation in cooperation with Merchant Marine and Defence Ministries and the Lighthouses Service. The once abandoned lighthouse now has its own full-time guard.

    Cape Tenaro, 'The end of the world' and also known as Cape Matapan, is the southernmost tip not only of mainland Greece, but also of Europe. Located in the Eastern Mani in Laconia prefecture, it is referred to consistently in ancient and modern Greek history since it was first mentioned by Homer in his 'Illiad'.

    [02] SYRIZA can reverse forecasts

    Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (Synaspismos) party President Alexis Tsipras addressed employees of the Informatics Systems General Secretariat on Monday, saying that the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) "can reverse predictions and lay the foundations in the coming elections for a new momentum of the radical left."

    Tsipras said that "what is important is not so much SYRIZA preserving its percentages, but creating the preconditions for a big change in the country's political affairs, because this has to do with the needs of the many and with the needs of society."

    He also claimed that as of June 8 the government "will be preparing a new tax raid on those who do not have and on those who are not privileged."
