38782 - The value of the Rallies for Macedonia

N. Lygeros
Translated from Greek by Athina Kehagias

The Macedonian Rallies have already given the example so that other cities of Greece will end up resisting toward the unacceptable usage of the name Macedonia for Skopje.
Today, Rallies will take place in Veria, Volos, Kavala, Drama, Serres, Kilkis, Lagada, Polykastro, Nea Moudania, Florina, Edessa, Kastoria, Katerini, Ptolemaida, Kos, Thiva, Siatista, Ioannina, Rhodes, Chalkida, Corfu, Pella and Chania.
The mere range of the cities network is already impressive, since we were initially told that the Greek nation, due to the economic crisis, will remain indifferent in regards to this issue.
But they had forgotten the endless strengths of Hellenism that battles for the sake of history and the respect towards it.
The fact that the Rallies are actually in everyone’s city, gives the opportunity to each Greek to actively participate in this battle, so he can then say that he wasn’t inactive.
Because with the Rallies, the battle for Macedonia also becomes a personal struggle.
Because everyone can contribute, and so indicate that they are with us.
These Rallies follow the spirit of those which took place in Thessaloniki and Athens, as well as abroad, consequently they constitute a missing link which unites even more the Greeks who are well aware of which are the diachronic values of Hellenism.
