  • [01] Farmers' groups again threaten mobilisations

    (-PA) -- Farmers' groups, mostly in the northern Greece provinces of Macedonia and Thrace, but also in agriculture-dependent Thessal, on Monday appeared ready to block major highway intersections, practically an "annual rite" that materialises in late January and February -- the least intensive period in the east Mediterranean country's agricultural sector.

    The most ominous threat is related to the blocking of a major border crossing with Bulgaria (Promachonas), with dissatisfied farmers there joined by unpaid employees of a northern Greece textile mill.

    Farmers' groups this year are mostly demanding tax-free petrol for all agricultural uses and swifter payment of crop damages, particularly cotton.

    Past protests have involved the stationing of large farm equipment on roadways.

    [02] 'Belle Epoque' exhibition at Athens National Gallery

    "Art Nouveau and Modernism: Treasures from the Petite Palais-Paris Museum of Fine Arts" is the title of an exhibition at the National Gallery in Athens, reminiscent of the Paris of the Belle Epoque.

    More than 150 paintings, furniture pieces, posters, jewelry designs and other objects are on display, a reminder of the flourishing era of artistic and cultural refinement in Europe, and especially in France, that began during the late 19th century and lasted until World War I, that has come to be known as The Belle Epoque. The exhibition will run until 28th February
