  • [01] International Communist party conference in Athens on Friday

    21/06/2001 14:08:38

    An international meeting of Communist and labour parties organised by the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) is to begin at Athens' Panteion University on Friday with a speech by KKE general secretary Aleka Papariga.

    So far, about 60 Communist parties from various countries have said they will be participating.

    This is the fourth such meeting and its theme is 'Communists and the labour and trade union movement'. The conference is also expected to focus on issues such as the recent violent protests in Gothenburg and the situation in the Balkans.

    In addition, the parties will explore ways of cooperating and joint action against multinational companies.

    The conference will end on Sunday.

    [02] Events leading up to 7th Symi Festival

    21/06/2001 13:54:28

    Events leading up to the 7th Symi Festival are due to begin over the next few days, beginning with a concert in Thessaloniki.

    The Symi Festival takes in all the smaller Dodecanese islands and is heralded by four pre-Festival events that will take place on Rhodes, Athens, Thessaloniki (for the first time ever) and Elefsina.

    These will begin with a music concert at 9:00 p.m. on June 27 at Thessaloniki's White Tower entitled 'Travelling with music, 1650-2001: From Baroque to Jazz', performed by the Theodoros Kerkezos Saxophone Quartet.

    This will be followed by a concert by Deborah Meyers on Rhodes on June 29, who will sing selected arias and songs from musicals.

    On July 1 in Athens, there will be a concert by composer Ilias Andriopoulos and singer Maria Dimitriadi at the Museum for Folk Instruments 'Foivos Anogianakis' in Plaka, also featuring traditional music played by the 'Symi Company'.

    The pre-Festival events will close with a performance next to the Elefsina archaeological site on July 6, where actress Melina Boteli will sing in the park accompanied by guitarist Michalis Sourvinos.

    Founded in 1995, the Symi Festival is sponsored by the Symi municipality and islanders living abroad, while the artists and organisers participate on a voluntary basis.

    The Festival's programme includes concerts of classical, traditional and modern music, theatre, films, poetry, dance and art exhibition, and the participating islands are Karpathos, Kasos, Kastellorizo, Nisyros, Symi and Hali.

    Since 1998 the festival has been international through its participation in the European Union's 'Kaleidoscope' programme, which this year includes events organised in Rome and Berlin.
