  • [01] Papandreou attends service in Distomo

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou attended a memorial service at the Saint Nikolaos Cathedral on Wednesday in memory of the people killed at Distomo, in Viotia, by the German occupation forces during World War Two.

    Speaking after the service, Papandreou said that "here, from martyred Distomo, we honour all the dead, of all the martyred places and cities of Greece. We honour the struggles of all who fought against Nazism, for Democracy and the freedom of our homeland."

    Papandreou added that "we do not forget, because they taught us. They taught us and are teaching us that if we do not wish to see again similar barbarism and violence, inhumanity, racism and wars, it is neccesary for us to struggle on a daily basis for Europe of Democracy, of the strength of Justice, and not of the right of the powerful, of humanity, of peace."
