Photo of the Day: At ERT's Solidarity Concert, The Human Face of the Greek Economic Crisis

One picture 1000 words: at ERT's amazing concert

A young woman in the choir is overcome by emotion as she sings the Greek national anthem at tonight's solidarity concert ...

Like many of her fellow musicians she cannot hold back the tears -
moving moments, the human face of the crisis

 Συγκινητικες, ανθρωπινες στιγμες στην συναυλια συμπαραστης της ΕΡΤ - 
 Δακρυσε ψελνοντας τον Εθνικο Υμνο και δακρυσαμε κι'εμεις μαζι της :( 

Σε γνωρίζω από την κόψη
του σπαθιού την τρομερή,
σε γνωρίζω από την όψη
που με βιά μετράει τη γη.

Απ' τα κόκαλα βγαλμένη
των Ελλήνων τα ιερά,
και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη,
χαίρε, ω χαίρε, Ελευθεριά!

Economics vs Culture and Civilisation?

A very moving extract which beautifully depicts yesterday's emotion packed solidarity concert from the ERT studios in Agia Paraskevi and seen by millions via the streaming facilitated by the EBU and various TV/Radio and websites which have embedded the links.

We wouldn't have missed it for the world... the concert was superb... civilised resistance without violence but with culture and music, the real Greece. It is probably the best State TV - liberated from party lines and government constraints, free and open - that we will ever see.


The Journalist's comment at the end of the video says it all...

ΕΞΑΙΤΙΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΚΡΙΣΗΣ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΘΥΣΙΑΣΟΥΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟ ΜΑΣ?

DOES THE CRISIS MEAN WE HAVE TO SACRIFICE OUR CULTURE AND CIVILISATION?

Definitely not! 


At Global Greek World, We ♥ Greece...and it shows!
