    Eurovision πάλι… 

    … και πάλι η Ελλάδα με τραγούδι όχι στη γλώσσα της. Λες και ντρεπόμαστε για την γλώσσα μας. Θεωρήθηκε ότι πρέπει τα τραγούδια που στέλνουμε να είναι στην αγγλική για να είναι πιό κατανοητά και να καταφέρουμε να διακριθούμε. Κυνηγήσαμε την πρωτιά και την πήραμε. Και τώρα; Πότε θα έρθει η αφύπνιση; Γιατί δεν προβάλλουμε την γλώσσα μας; Γιατί ζητάμε να μας σεβαστούν όλοι οι άλλοι όταν εμείς δεν σεβόμαστε την Ελληνικότητά μας;
    Ζηλεύω τις χώρες που με υπερηφάνεια βγαίνουν με τραγούδι στη γλώσσα τους και μας δίνουν την ευκαιρία να ακούσουμε τους ήχους του κόσμου τους.

    Greece Seeks its Role in the World 

    Greece in the world

    Greece’s relationship with the rest of the world is something of a see-saw oscillation between self-absorption and extroversion, between navel-gazing and punching above its weight in the international arena. On the one hand, this is the result of the intense local politics in which all Greeks are involved and, on the other, of the demands placed on the country by its responsibilities as a member of international organizations. Greece’s current presidency of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), like its presidency of the European Union in the first half of 2003, is purely the result of chance. The fact that the country finds itself handling major crises during these rotating presidencies is merely a consequence of these chance developments. And Greece rises to the challenge, just as it did when – after tough lobbying – it gained a temporary seat on the UN Security Council. (More …)

    Acropolis now! A museum for the Elgin Marbles 

    From “The Indipendent”                          By Claire Soares in Athens

    The battle to recover the Elgin Marbles has been long and fruitless. Now Greece has built a museum in the hope it will one day house them.

    From a distance, you could almost mistake it for a designer multi-storey car park. The grey concrete and angular lines are certainly a contrast to the classical marble edifice in whose shadow it stands. Yet the Parthenon seems to look down on the architectural upstart not with disapproval but pride, affection, and most of all hope. Hope that the new offspring can finally bring the ancestral treasures home. (More …)

      the sculptures of the parthenon that has to do with the rite of the ceremony of panathinea should return to their homeland and the olympic games of london is a wonderful opportunity of this exchanging with the light of delfoi.
      how british w3ould feel if someone like lord elgin torn apart magna charta and started to share it to a various countries.
      even and nadine gordimer supports the greek appeal for the return of the xsculptures
      it is not right the term elginian marbles
      first because they do not belong to lord elgin
      second marble is the material that the sculptures were made.

    9 Μαίου – Γενέθλια Ημέρα της Ευρώπης! 

    Στίς 9 Μαίου 1950 ο Robert Schuman πρότεινε τη δημιουργία μιας οργανωμένης Ευρώπης, απαραίτητη προϋπόθεση για τη διατήρηση ειρηνικών σχέσεων μεταξύ των λαών της. Η πρόταση αυτή, γνωστή ως “Δήλωση Schuman“, θεωρείται ως η απαρχή γέννεσης της οντότητας που  εξελίχθηκε στη σημερινή “Ευρωπαική  Ένωση”.
