  • [01] Papoulias at Messolonghi

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Sunday attended events commemorating the historic attempt by Greeks to break out of the besieged town of Messolonghi in 1826, dubbed the 'Exodus of the Free Besieged from Messolonghi', during Greece's war of independence against Turkish rule. The sortie ended in a bloody massacre but marked a turning point in Greece's fortunes, with Turkish barbarity inspiring Europeans to aid the war of independence that Greeks began in 1821.

    In a speech at an official dinner held in his honour, President Papoulias underlined that solidarity should today be "the foundation stone for the Europe we are trying to build". According to Papoulias, the European vision was recent history's most significant investment in peace, cooperation and growth, its most ambitious and unprecedented political attempt at solidarity and unification.

    According to Greece's president, the people of Europe were calling on their political leaders to overcome the institutional impasse and create a European Union with social cohesion and solidarity, with convergence combined with respect for differences, marked by environmental sensitivity, sustainable growth, protection of workers and social justice.
