25th March: Greek Independence Day

Celebrating Greek Independence Day Around the Global Greek World 
Ζήτω ο Παγκόσμιος Ελληνισμός!


National Day Parade through the eyes of a child: 
My 5 year old's drawing of the 25th March...  
With Greece's trials and tribulations over the last few years it becomes increasingly important for all of us in the Global Greek World to fight for the values and ideals passed down to us and  for our future as Hellenes. 

 Let's teach our children to love their homeland.

 Ζήτω η Ελλάδα, 
Ζήτω η Κύπρος, 
Ζήτω ο Ελληνισμός! 

 Χρόνια Πολλά Βαγγελία και Βαγγέλη!
Xronia Polla Evangelia and Evangelos!

Syntagma Square, Athens Greece

who said this about the photo
Sadly no one allowed anywhere near Syntagma Square today.
Just to clarify after some totally unacceptable behaviour, for a couple of years, strict security was enforced at the parades meaning that it was 'by invitation only' thus restricting attendance 
Such a shame, part of the fun was going down with 
family and friends and enjoying the day and the place... 
asking the policeman to move a little to the left or right 
so we could have a better view, without risking arrest...
Thankfully this has changed now and people can go and enjoy.

Irini said this about the photo:
'This is a picture from a suburb parade in Athens. I could not help seeing a metaphor in this picture! Although it seems like a sad picture, I find it quite optimistic! The boy did march proudly despite his arm fracture! Greece will go on!!'

Thank you to everyone who sent us photos...
Esther, Eleni, Lizzy, Viv,Irini, Sharon, Tania, Nick, Elia, 
Ευχαριστούμε. 
Και του χρόνου!
