A Call to Syntagma Square

A Call to Syntagma Square


Athens, 9:45 a.m. Saturday, February 11, 2012


During the night of February 10 to 11 leaflets were spread all over Athens. They are small pieces (4.5 by 4.0 inches) of white paper with a text of a few lines printed, on both sides, in black.


Here is a translation of the text:




We summon you to Syntagma


on Sunday


February 12 on in the afternoon




from every corner of Greece, let us gather outside the Parliament

to demand that the death penalty of our country

should not be signed,

which penalty is the passing by vote 

of the new loan agreement.



All together, with us,


on Sunday at Syntagma,


to stop the treason!



Manolis Glezos, Mikis Theodorakis





 [Note: The emphasis, in bold letters, and the size of font was in the Greek original text.]


Mikis Theodorakis, the reader can refer to my ZNet Commentary "Cultural Resistance" of September 14, 2005.

Manolis Glezos, the reader can refer to my ZNet Commentary "The Flag on the Acropolis" of May 6, 2011.
